Documentary - Immigration Nation Discover the untold story behind Australia's multicultural mix. This landmark documentary series explores Australia's century long struggle to overcome the White Australia Policy.
The term White Australia Policy comprises various historical policies that intentionally restricted non-white immigration to Australia. It arose with Federation in 1901, and the policies were progressively dismantled between 1949 and 1973.
Fortunately, this no longer applies and Australia is a mix of over 250 of the world's peoples and, in the main, works like a well-oiled clockwork machine. The white Australia policy was repealed soon after the second world war due to the serious depletion of the already small population.
