Summary 100 Years: The Australian Story Series: the intriguing tale of the Australian nation: an epic saga of power and politics. Interviews with Prime Ministers, past and present, and unique archival material reveal how Australians redefined their grand experiment in nation building. Episode 1 - Child of the Empire This episode looks at Australia's reluctant march to full independence. In 1901 at Federation, Australians created a nation within the British Empire. Australian nationalism and Empire loyalty went hand in hand. Our independence came slowly, often reluctantly and the 1999 rejection of the republic is consistent with this story
