Lawless: The Real Bushrangers
Explore Australia’s most notorious and legendary crimes from its colonial history. With stories of gun-toting mayhem, law breakers, and murder.
S01:E01 - Ned Kelly
The brutal gunfight between Ned Kelly’s gang and Victorian policeman on the banks of Stringybark Creek is the pivotal event in the Ned Kelly story, transforming Kelly from a petty thief to a wanted outlaw, and eventually a national icon.
S01:E02 - Captain Moonlite
Andrew George Scott (A.K.A. Captain Moonlite) was a preacher, a con man, a gentleman, and was certainly not your average bushranger. An 11-year long career of crime ended in a violent shootout resulting in the death of two of his gang and a policeman.
S01:E03 - Ben Hall
Before Ned Kelly, Ben Hall was the ‘rock star’ of Australian bushranging, leading a short but prolific 3-year crime spree across NSW. His criminal career came to a bloody end when he was shot by police in a hail of bullets.
S01:E04 - The Kenniffs
The Kenniff brothers were the last of Australia's wild colonial boys. Their careers ended in a showdown. Their victims were found burned and chopped to pieces. The Kenniffs were caught and tried for murder, but maintained their innocence to the end.
