Understanding where we have come from
Of all the great shifts in Australian life since World War II, perhaps religion has travelled farthest. Back in the 1940s and 50s Australians dutifully attended church and Sunday school. Christianity had a firm grip on the Australian soul.
But from the late sixties, bad boys and girls were finding spiritual fulfillment elsewhere and the Churches struggled to keep up. Combining astonishing historical archive film and the revealing personal stories and photographs from people, both inside and outside the church, this episode explores the struggle for the Australian soul since the end of World War Two.
