Post-war Australia: the miner. From the 1949 coal miners' strike to the 'Axe the Tax' demonstrations in 2010, the Aussie miner has exerted huge political influence on the workplace and the country.
How Australia was transformed from an agricultural economy into a manufacturing one and how this workplace revolution ended 40 years later amidst public acrimony, inflation, an oil crisis and the rise of the Free Market.
Explore how since the Second World War, Australian agriculture has had to adapt to survive in changing global and domestic economies, a volatile political landscape, and face the challenges of an unpredictable climate.
