The Last Outlaw
The most accurate and lavishly presented story of the Ned Kelly saga has to be Ian Jones and Bronwyn Binns' mini-series The Last Outlaw made in 1980 by Pegasus Productions and Channel Seven Melbourne. Filmed on location in and around Kelly Country, it starred John Jarratt as Ned Kelly, Steven Bisley as Joe Byrne, Sigrid Thornton as Kate Kelly, David Bradshaw as Wild Wright, Lewis Fitz-Gerald as Tom Lloyd, Elaine Cusick as Mrs. Kelly, Peter Hehir as Aaron Sherritt and Gerard Kennedy as Harry Power.

We always knew it would come to this, didn't we? Not just another fight. It is got to be war.

If my lips teach the public that men are made mad by bad treatment, and if the police are taught that they may exasperate to madness men they persecute and ill treat, my life will not be entirely thrown away.

I could have thrown a different light on this case. I do not fear death, I fear it as little as to drink a cup of tea.

The Last Outlaw: a loving look at Ned Kelly

While not everyone wants to read about Ned Kelly or the ANZACs or even The Great Depression, we hope they want to learn something about Australian History. From the ex-Prime Minister John Howard to a confused ex-NSW Education Minister Carmel Tebbutt (see the ex-pattern here?) a number of politicians have jumped on the teaching history bandwagon. But at what cost? From Right Wing Liberals to the multitude of State Governments, seems everyone has an agenda. We'd like to let the readers decide what is worth learning. Here at we present the facts, the fiction and everything in between. It all adds to the experience and hopefully makes History an exciting place to be while also proving it needn't always have to be written by the victors.
