Cadder church welcomed the production, who interviewed Professor Gerard Carruthers and Professor Lindsay Farmer from the University of Glasgow, Murray Armstrong, author of The Liberty Tree and Jimmy Watson from Friends of Thomas Muir.

The project explores histories of reform, resistance and rebellion of convicts transported as political prisoners to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the impact their patterns of resistance had on the development of democracy, liberty, human and workers rights, the labour movement and de-colonisation in Australia, Britain and Ireland.

A traveling exhibition, which explores the same theme may visit Scotland in 2024, following its pemieres in Sydney, Canberra, London and Dublin.
