Kin - A Real People's History of Our Nation



Follow Nick Brodie’s journey to discover the history of his kinfolk and their arrival in Australia. Kin provides a unique insight into Australia’s colonial story: colonies grow and wars are fought as Nick traces his family across land and sea, in their everyday occupations and through their hardships and most memorable events.

From convicts, goldminers and sailors, to high-country horsemen, nurses and soldiers – and almost everyone in between – Kin is about generations of real Australian families living real lives.
