Drawing on a selection of remarkable films from the Film Australia Library and Archives Office of Tasmania, this beautifully designed two-DVD set explores the concept of wilderness. It features some of the country's most significant documentaries from the early 20th century to the present day, as well as an award-winning animation, interviews with contemporary commentators and magnificent still photographs. Combined with a website, providing access to additional materials such as transcripts and a study guide, this is an excellent teaching tool and a thought-provoking and visually stunning foray into the Australian wilderness - real and imagined.
