Duration: 60 minutes
Synopsis: Lawless - The Real Bushrangers is a four-part original landmark documentary series unearthing the truth behind Australia's legendary outlaws. Hosted by respected journalist Mike Munro (himself a descendant of bushrangers) we follow investigations into the past and deliver the findings to living descendants of both bushrangers and those who fought against them. In each fascinating episode, the team focuses on a single bushranger legend; Ned Kelly (VIC), Ben Hall (NSW), Captain Moonlite (NSW) and the last of the wild colonial boys - Patrick & James Kenniff (QLD). All are larger than life characters involved in infamous events heavily shrouded in mystery and folklore. The bushrangers are heroes to some, villains to others and for their descendants who carry their legacy today; they are a cause of either pain and shame, or pride and glory. There are always two sides to every story. But how do we separate fact from fiction?
