Summary The second episode begins in 1928, with the historic flight of the Southern Cross across the Pacific Ocean, followed throughout the 1930s by the continuing struggle to maintain an Australian-owned aviation industry in the face of powerful international airline businesses, concluding in early 1942 with the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese air force during World War Two. As the title of the episode suggests, a central theme running through many of these events is Australian national patriotism and pride. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Narrated by Colin Friels.
