The two voyagers were both extremely important in Australia eventually becoming a single nation - Federation occuring exactly 100 years after the voyages proved New Holland and New South Wales were actually part of the same single continent. The program is a fascinating and intimate tale about two extraordinary men and will be told by the public broadcaster in the national interest.
