Cultural historian, folk musician and raconteur Warren Fahey reveals how the Australian identity emerged through colonial fantasy, pioneering determination and hard yakka.

Much of Warren’s material comes from his collecting work in the early 1970s when he recorded oral histories of people born in the late 19th century.
