The Blainey view : footprints by Geoffrey Blainey( Visual )

5 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Geoffrey Blainey presents his view of Australia, past and present. In this, his first television venture, he examined Australia's past, exploring not only major influences and events which have shaped our history, but also the smaller, less obvious changes that have transformed our daily lives. Blainey also challenges our accepted views of many points in Australian history, from the gold rush to WWII, the Great Depression to the political events of 1975. Footprints: Australia's history stretches back many thousands of years. In this final program, Geoffrey Blainey travels to the wilderness of south-west Tasmania, where archaeologists have discovered evidence of a people of immense resource, living in the shadow of a glacier, at the peak of the ice age. When the seas cut off Tasmania, Aboriginal life entered a new phase, as they mastered the art of living in a harsh and unforgiving land. But this society stood little chance against the white Europeans with their guns and diseases. Appearing in the program are John Mulvaney, then Professor of Archaeology at the ANU, Canberra; Professor Max Camion of the University of Western Australia, and Wamjuk Marike, tribal elder of the Rarujingu tribe
