below are a number of past featured Ned Kelly related
videos from our home page that we just couldn't let go
(well, until they are deleted off YouTube or MySpace).
Archaeological Dig at Glenrowan
Here is aChannel Ten
report on the (now completed and filled back in) archaeological dig on the
site of the Jones Inn, scene of the 1880 Siege of Glenrowan
(marvel at the complete lack of understanding Gary
Dean shows when it comes to how fires 'breathe').
Harris and Ned Kelly
bearded AustBrit Rolf Harris whose forsaken his wobble
board for a paint brush to whip up a Ned Kelly portrait
while a soundtrack of him singing about Ned plays
in the background (riveting stuff) during an episode
of 'The Rolf Harris Show' which aired on the BBC
on 7th November, 1970.
an animated Ned Kelly doing some sort of spiel for
eBay about email scams, because according to the
auction monolith, '...online scammers can cause you
some pretty big hassles. And the old school bad guys
aren't too happy about these up-starts stealing their
thunder in the badness stakes...' Yeah, I'd be scared
too if I was a spammer!
Letter by Ned Kelly
Jerilderie Letter by Ned Kelly. Jerilderie
Productions brings to life an Australian national
treasure, Ned Kelly, who through the voice of Finlay,
passionately articulates his pleas of innocence
and his desire for justice for his family and other
poor Irish Catholics. Protesting their treatment
by the police, banks and English settlers, ably
backed up by the music of Malcolm Hill.
(Very) Brief History of the Bushranger Ned Kelly
and the Kelly Gang
back and enjoy A
(Very) Brief History of the Bushranger Ned Kelly
and the Kelly Gang, from heli9 which
was awarded 'Best Film' and nominated for 'Best
Animation' in the Brickfilms
Historical Fiction Contest. Apparently all
of the paintings are reproductions of real pieces
of art from the work of Sidney Nolan. I wonder
if Sid knows that....
Here's the Nurofen
Ned Kelly, a kind of bastardised slant on
the siege of Glenrowan (minus the Gang). This Kelly
reel features a few cheap laughs and a reasonable
on-location shoot (I'm guessing they had a bit
of money to play with in their budget). Apparently
this commercial was directed by David Denneen for
Filmgraphics Productions in Sydney so feel free
to send him your regards (among other things).
brain box is what I am' Hempel who
apparently is keen to get
'a internet' but 'knows nothing about
it'. Bob runs the animated Glenrowan bushranger
show. The same one that was ridiculed on The
Late Show by Tony Martin and Mick Molloy. Buyer
beware, Bob uses very colourful language but 'if
you don't like it you can have your money back'.
If that's the case then Bob owes us all, big time...

Micallef's 'Glenrowan 1880'
Shaun Micallef's short lived foray into variety TV
with this skit from The
Micallef Programme. The clip, titled Glenrowan
1880, includes gems such as
"Men with smooth and supple skin and scent of apricot
are few and far between in Glenrowan. If I have to stroke
and smell every face in Victoria we'll find you!"
In Our Hearts' by The Bushwackers
In Our Hearts is a music video which includes
some footage from the original 1906 (not 1902 as
stated in their bio) film The
Kelly Gang. Shot on location in the Blue
Mountains and utilising a sound studio and green
screen this production is well worth your attention.
Kelly' by Rebel Machine
Rebel Machine, "I visited the NSW gallery and saw
the paintings by Sydney Nolan. I was inspired to
write a song and create a video to help tell the
Kelly' by Bridgeypoo
from the horse's mouth (or bum) Bridgeypoo comments, "Ned
Kelly capture reenactment! Ha ha. Don't ask."
Kelly Animation' by RubbaDucky123
is Monty Letho's clay animation of Ned Kelly he completed

Bushrangers by Edward Harrington.

Maybe when they posed the original questions to the
actors they could have also asked, 'Why use
Robert Dewe's book?'
Kelly as seen by alliewolfgal,
set to the music of Men At Work and using a number
of photos from Heath's movie and a couple which look
very similar to the ones found here at Ironoutlaw.com
(yes, I'm sure she's paying royalties...).
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 wingers
to a multitude of meddling State Governments, it seems
everyone has an agenda. We'd like to let the readers decide
what is worth learning. Here at IronOutlaw.com 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 doesn't always have to be written by the victors. [site map]
