Description

'Constructing a Nation' is published to coincide with a three-part miniseries on the ABC on Sunday nights at 7:30pm, beginning on Sunday March 17th. 'Constructing a Nation' will cover the first three episodes featuring the making of Sydney Harbour Bridge, the creation of the Telegraph Line across Australia, and the building of the pipeline from Perth to Kalgoorlie. This engaging collection tells the story of how three of Australia's greatest man-made icons were built. These are the powerful stories of the human, political, social and scientific dramas at the heart of achievements that shaped a nation. Covering the epoch from the 1860s to the 1930s, what emerges from these stories of hubris, survival, wilderness, struggle, conflict and the indigenous frontier, is nothing less than an epic.show more
