This compelling two-part documentary charts the political rise and fall of former Australian Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam: an idealistic but flawed visionary who remains the most loved and hated politician in our nation's history. Whitlam examines an era and the man when, as a country, we were arguably at our most confident and flamboyant - when we took risks and went to the margins. It was a time of power and of passion, which divided Australian society in a way that hadn't happened before - nor since.

Episode 1 (1950 - 1972): follows Gough Whitlam's 23 year journey to re-shape the Australian Labor Party, leading it from the wilderness to the promised land of Government-in-power.

Episode 2 (1972 - 1980): once in power, Whitlam and his Government implemented sweeping changes at dizzying speed and eventually began to buckle under the strain. Encompassing great highs and the terrible lows, the `Whitlam years' were epic in scope and still resonate strongly with Australians today.

FEATURING INTERVIEWS WITH: Phillip Adams, Bob Carr, Barry Cohen andrew Denton, Malcolm Fraser, Max Gillies, Bob Hawke, Bill Hayden, John Howard, Barry Jones, Jean Kittson, Mungo MacCallum, Junie Morosi, George Negus, Ian Sinclair, Tom Uren.
