Populate or Perish

Populate or Perish

Part of The Australian Experience series

Australia has long been seen as a land of potential, with plenty of room for everyone - provided they were white. This film recalls the fear and insularity that has shaped our population policy. Today, these anxieties are often expressed as opposition to further population increase. Others argue that the problem is not the size or make-up of the population but the way we choose to live.

1995, 55 Minutes
