Summary
Barrister and human rights advocate Geoffrey Robertson QC believes that it is nurture not nature that shapes our moral integrity, but does his family history support his theory? Fifth generation Australian Geoffrey has lived in London for decades, but he remains proudly Australian. He traces his Scottish ancestors"3early mountain cattlemen who were the first of the self-made Robertsons in Australia"3as well as another part of his family, surrounded by a life of wealth and privilege. Throughout his family tree there is evidence of hard work and determination, from his great great grandmother, the first female chief steward of Australia's Parliament, to the God-fearing peasants who fled years of poverty and hardship in Scotland to sail for the 'promised land'. Within his family history he finds links to royal patronage, the whiff of a cover-up and even a royal scandal. Could Geoffrey be descended from a Prussian king? And if he is, does this change who he is today? His own family, he discovers, is a perfect example of the cultural and ethnic melting pot that makes up Australia.
