1: In the Dreaming

The Aborigines, Australia's oldest inhabitants, possess a very strange and very ancient civilisation. Their stories contain remarkable parallels to the geological and natural history of the continent. They were ill prepared, however, for the incursion of the Europeans, those fierce white warriors from the other side of the world. Narrators NICK ENRIGHT

At six o'clock on the morning of Sunday 13 May 1787, a fleet of 11 old ships set out from
