Lawless – The Real Bushrangers is a landmark documentary series exploring Australia’s most iconic crimes of colonial history. These are stories of violent murder and gun toting mayhem, foundation tales of those that make and break the law.
From the birth of the Ned Kelly legend to the brutal death of Ben Hall, these pivotal events are shrouded in mystery and folklore. How do we separate fact from fiction?
Now Mike Munro – Australia’s own television icon – and a specialist team investigate the legends of these rebels and the people who fought against them, using the full force of modern day science. Using archaeology to literally break new ground and the latest forensic methods to test the historical evidence, the team illuminate a fact-based version of our history.
Join the Lawless team as they uncover new evidence, deliver new insights and reveal some deeply inconvenient truths.
