Picnic at Hanging Rock is entirely fictional too.... I've met people who think it's real.

If you read the book it has absolutely no reference to a forcible removal, and it was written by Doris Pilkington who I think may know more about it than both of us.


Dont misunderstand me, I love the film, love the book more and support any native claims to land rights, as any previous post I have made clearly shows, but mis-information helps no-one.
Have a read of Australias Coloured Minority a text by Neville.

I'm not referring to the film that was based on recollections not fact.

The fact remains Neville presided over the stolen generation policy and was an avid proponent of absortion....

He seemed to be simply a white collar worker implementing a government policy.

I'd be out of a job, especially if I mention it to a lady who's grandmother was removed.

Look, before we decent into histrionics all I said was that the film was NOT a true story, it was a fictionalised version of a very good book, and as per usual the facts were sacrificed for the desire to create controversy and ultimately sell tickets.

I am not endorsing "removals" just that the facts have to be observed.


Oh and I personally blame where he was born for his radical views!

The scenery was beautiful but the history about the early days was facinating.
This was on Telewest/Virgin Teleport a while ago. Started watching it, but didn't get round to finishing it. I had heard that one of the girls on there committed suicide afterwards, not sure how true that is....

If ya's want real heart breaking stuff check out the Leaving of Liverpool. Was a two part series they did a while back. Most of the victims are still fighting what happened. Shocked me way more than rabbit proof fence. And both involving many of the same agencies (well kind of)

Anyways I am waiting to find out what Walla's mates at work said when he told them what Rubymatt off of BE said. I bet they were fuming...

Yeah, but they are, and I bet it matters a very little amount, you know, in the grand scheme of things!

Yes the 17 year old Yorkshire girl committed suicide a couple of days before the programme went to air in Australia. It was really sad she had apparently been missing for a couple of days and was found hanging from a tree I believe in the estate her father managed.

It is a really good programme and gives a really good insight into their lives in those times.

I saw the leaving of Liverpool and yes it was shocking. I met someone here that is one of those children.
