Apology to the Stolen Generations of Australia
The apology in Federal Parliament to the Stolen Generations of Australia, by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was a defining moment in the nation's history. Crowds gathered across the country to mark the occasion with tears, cheers and emotional displays of relief, happiness and in some cases, anger. People came from across the country and from overseas to be present at Australia's Parliament House for the historic apology by the Prime Minister to Australia's Indigenous people. While the nation's political leaders got the most 'face time' on the nation's televised coverage, hundreds more people packed the public gallery to witness this historic event. Young and old, Aboriginal and European - and those, like many Australians, whose ancestry is descended from both - joined with those of nationalities from around the world to fill the Great Hall, bringing with them their own hopes, wishes and opinions on what this day means and what effect it will have upon the nation in years to come. Presented by Tony Jones (Lateline) and Miriam Corowa (Message Stick) this DVD includes complete coverage of the speeches and proceedings with expert analysis and reaction from members of Australia's Stolen Generation.
