This documentary from 2009 features Baldrick (sorry, I mean Tony Robinson) digging up Ned Kelly’s past.
Ned Kelly Uncovered follows the first ever excavation of the Glenrowan Inn site where the iconic Australian bushranger and his gang holed up for a showdown with police.
Nearly 130 years later, can a team of archaeologists and historians reveal new insights into Ned Kelly’s final moments of freedom.
With expert commentary from Kelly experts Ian Jones and Alex McDermott, this one hour documentary follows a seven week dig led by archaeologist Adam Ford.
As the archaeologists unearth a host of artefacts including cartridges and bullets, the team conduct tests with fascinating results. Meanwhile the historians strip back the myth, piecing together the clues to give a detailed new look at an iconic Australian, literally from the ground up.
