Death or Liberty, which includes an interview with Dr Moore, brings to life the forgotten histories of the rebels and radicals
transported to Australia as political prisoners in the convict era.

thanks for the heads up on this as it looks like it could be a good show. can I also just say that this post has triggered something in my mind that I had forgotten... where is billy bragg on the 2016 bluesfest lineup? he was supposed to be the first announced for 2015 but that fell through & it was stated that he was looking to reschedule his bluesfest performance for the 2016 festival... not sure if this is still on or not? can the admin on the forum here give any insight into what is happening with mr bragg?

Excellent heads up - I'm sure there'll be an increase in these type of docos on ABC / SBS on the lead up to Easter with the 100th anniversary of the uprising and the war of independence in Ireland.

This movement influenced the music we hear in Australia and around the world as much as any political or social event in the last hundred years.

Billy Bragg toured here in March 2014 and October 2012.
So fans cannot say they have not had opportunities.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
