Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Police State is the story of corruption in the Queensland police force and body politic, realised through drama re-enactments, twenty years of news and documentary footage, and a compelling narrative. In the final years of the Bjelke-Petersen administration, Queensland has become as close to a police state as anything since the convict era. “Police State” puts into perspective the headlines which have dominated the Australian media for the past two years. Rated: PG
