Presents reasons why Ned Kelly is one of the most infamous Australians in history. Although labelled as a bushranger and murderer, he was still a hero and leader to the destitute selectors in rural north-east Victoria. Features the works of Sidney Nolan whose many versions of the legend are perhaps the most familiar Kelly images. Irish actor and broadcaster, T. P. McKenna: Irish political activist, Bernadette Devlin: painter, Sidney Nolan: Australian historian, John McQuillon: and filmmaker and Kelly expert, Ian Jones are all interviewed. Written by Thomas Keneally.
