Having been outlawed, the Kelly Gang now need to raise funds to help their sympathisers and to make plans for their future. They decide on a bank hold up at Euroa. Preparing for the robbery they bail up a number of workers at a nearby homestead, taking the opportunity to explain to their forced audience their actions at Stringybark Creek, hoping to win over some public sympathy for themselves.
From the Bushranger theme, this episode continues our detailed exploration of Ned Kelly & the Kelly Gang. ( 53 mins)
