"In the spring of 1789, a ship left port in London bound for the Botany Bay penal colony in Australia. The ship carried precious cargo - women, sent to keep the desperate male colonists from engaging in what their governor called 'gross irregularities.' But these women were hardly quiet homemakers - they were a hardy raucous lot rounded up from London's notorious Newgate prison and other jails around the country, and they did not submit quietly to their forced voyage and the rough life they knew was ahead. Once aboard the Lady Juliana, these destitute convicts -- thieves, prostitutes and con artists -- turned their banishment into opportunity, setting up a business before they arrived in Botany Bay. As they traveled from port to port en route to Australia, many offered themselves to sailors from other ships. With liquor flowing and bodices bursting, they took control of their destinies, and eventually arrived in Australia, healthy and ready to take on the new world. Voyage of the Courtesans brings to light the true story of the voyage of Lady Juliana. The film will delve into the history with the help of these ladies modern-day descendents. The audience will follow as these women uncover their pasts, unearthing the truth about their spirited ancestors, and comparing themselves to the women of the Lady Juliana, who managed to play the tough cards they were dealt into an unexpected winning hand"--Cover

Art house( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating four-part series that goes behind the closed doors of the Australian Art Auction world to meet the key players who buy and sell art in the ferociously competitive art scene. Two international houses - Sotheby's and Christies - have dominated the Australian art auction market until the recent rise of brash newcomer on the block, Deutscher-Menzies. The Australian-owned art auction house was set up in 1998 by local racing identity Rod Menzies and former art dealer Chris Deutscher. Art House follows Christies' and Deutscher-Menzies as they battle for market share. We meet the auctioneers, dealers, vendors, collectors and new investment buyers who inhabit the complex art world where the buying and selling of art has become a delicate mix of commerce and aesthetic sensibilities. 2003 looks to be a new high in the art world, fed by ferocious competition among hungry auction houses in search of stock and buyers and dealers keen to acquire art for love, money or both. But can the market sustain three big auction houses? When will the bubble burst? And how will Australian owned Deutscher-Menzies go against international giant Christies?
