Surely it cant be true that one of our politicians drank a glass of herbicide to prove it wasnt poisonous? And how did the police catch the ugliest, least successful and unluckiest colonial bushranger you could ever hope to find?Learn about some of the lesser-known episodes buried in our history and what life was really like in colonial Australia, right through to the 1920s and beyond.
