2 – Kelly Gang Overview 1878-1880

Episode 2 is the introductory episode, familiarising or reminding us about Ned Kelly & the notorious Kelly Gang.  Ned and the Kelly Gang were bushrangers, operating mainly in North East of Victoria, in the 1870’s.

In this Episode we will consider the place the Kelly story holds in Ozzie history, and then present a brief outline of the whole story.  With that outline fresh in our minds, Episode 3 will follow on, with a more detailed and indepth look at the Kellys, starting with Ned’s family background and his childhood years.    (28 mins)
