Inside Culture with Mary Beard – 22 October 2021 – BBC Two

Down Under – Series 4 Episode 5 of 7 – Mary Beard investigates the ongoing history of creative connection and cultural exchange between Britain and Australia and asks what that relationship looks like today.

Mary visits The Box in Plymouth, where the National Museum of Australia’s groundbreaking exhibition Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters has just been installed. She will speak to the exhibition’s curator, Margo Neale, about how Songlines takes visitors on a journey across the Australian desert, telling the foundation stories of the country’s indigenous people through the work of their artists.

Mary also meets creatives and leaders who have lived and worked both in Britain and down under, including the 27th Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard. Playing out the episode with a track from her new album is ex-Neighbours actress and musician Natalie Imbruglia.
