Extraordinary Tale of William Buckley - DVD
InformationThe remarkable true story of survival
Thoroughly researched and adapted from journalist John Morgans 1852 book, this personal account of survival tells thetrue story of the escaped convict who lived with an Aboriginal tribe in south-eastern Australia long before white colonisation.
A man of mixed background - from humble Cheshire bricklayer, to soldier fighting in the army against Napoleon, to convict forced to travel to the other side of the world, Buckley's famous account of joining the Wathaurong people, an Aboriginal tribe with whom he lived alongside for 32 years, is one of the greatest Australian survival stories ever told.
An engaging recreation of history, featuring Jean-Marc Russ as Buckley, Chris Haywood as John Morgan and professionally presented by historian Michael Cathcart, The Extraordinary Tale of William Buckley is a gripping look at one of the remarkable stories that shaped the nation.
