The People Speak

THE HISTORY CHANNEL – Sunday 2 December, 7.30pm

The People Speak is an alternative history of Australia, told through the voices raised to change it, to protest it, to defy it. The People Speak features some of Australia’s finest actors and musicians including Jack Thompson, Sam Worthington, Rebecca Gibney, Claudia Karvan, David Wenham, Ryan Kwanten, Julia Stone, Tex Perkins, Christine Anu, and a host of others. Interpreting primary sources of all kinds they re-visit the ‘good fights’ over Australia’s convict past, republicanism, working conditions, gender equality, conscription, gay rights, immigration and the rights of our indigenous populations.
