Tasmanian Tales Whales and Whaling

In the 1840s Tasmania's capital Hobart was the second largest whaling port in the world. Total commercial exploitation of whales was the order of the day.
As the first truly global industry, whaling was a major contributor to Australia's colonial development, but the hardships and dangers were many.
Journey into the beautiful wilderness, delicate ecosystems and rugged coastline of Tasmania to learn about its ties to the "monster of the deep", the whale.
Narrated by Richard Morecroft
