Summary
"Macquarie arrived in New South Wales in 1810 to rule over 10,000 criminals and colonists. His vision profoundly shaped the nation - not least by nurturing Australia's egalitarian spirit and national belief in the right to 'a fair go'. He was even the first person to use, in an official document, the colony's future name - Australia. But behind every great man is a great woman - and this film is her story too. We also reveal Elizabeth Campbell Macquarie's untold contribution to the Australian nation. How did a barefoot Scottish boy brought up in an earth floor hovel rise so high? Why did his life end in poverty and disgrace while the nation he nurtured grew and prospered? Using expert interviews, diaries and letters written by the characters themselves and contemporary narrative, this story will tell the uplifting and dramatic story of the Father of Australia." -- History Channel website
