SBS Documentary "The End Of The Road"

Posted by Jack Sim on 12 November 2014
Boggo Road Gaol Pty presents "The end of the Road" produced Andy Parke - the story of the rooftop protests and riots in 1988 in which 5 desperate prisoners managed to cause the closure of Boggo Road Gaol.

The men's demands to close No.2 Division (today the only remaining portion) forced the Queensland government to hold an inquiry into the entire prison system.

This documentary captures the tension and intense national interest at the time and includes interviews with some of the key players including former Premier Russell Cooper and hunger striker Mark Flewell-Smith.

This documentary will air tomorrow (Thursday 12th November) night at 7.30pm EST on The Feed on SBS2. There are some repeats, please check local guides for details.

After it airs, it will be online here for you to veiw: https://www.youtube.com/user/SBS2Australia/featured.
