Summary Note This two part programme tells the story of certain 'ugly' events, which happened in the history of the founding of Australia. Such events happened, in around the mid-1800s, at the 'Convincing Ground', a site sacred to the decendants of the Kilcarer Gundidj clan. This site on the coast of Portland is one of Victoria's earliest white settlement, as well as the massacre of the Kilcarer Gundidj clan, in a dispute over a beached whale in 1834. The dispute occurred on the beach of Allestree at Portland Bay, but known to the local Indigenous people as the 'Convincing Ground'. Includes comments on the subject from current Aboriginal elders of the Kilcarer Gundidj clan, and members of the local Portland community. Also discussions on the subject by Melbourne academics, based on archival sources, such as journals and diaries of white settlers in the area. Amongst these are the journals of George Augustus Robinson, dating from around 1841. Includes selected archival footage of certain such 'ugly' events, as discussed above.
