Abstract:

First Fleet captain John Hunter copied the work of young First Fleet midshipman George Raper to produce his famous sketchbook showing life in Botany Bay. Raper's own First Fleet paintings, begun in 1788, show his skill and fine eye for detail in capturing the birds and flowers of NSW. They were acquired by the National Library of Australia in 2004 after lying undiscovered and undisturbed for more than 200 years in an English manor. While Hunter, who became the second Governor of NSW, didn't share Raper's talents with a paintbrush, both men shared equally an excitement and enthusiasm for recording what they found in Sydney Cove in 1788. A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with Early Works. Produced in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. With special thanks to the National Library of Australia. Copyright - 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Executive Producer: Anna Grieve Producer: Betty Churcher, John Hughes Director: John Hughes Writer: Betty Churcher DOP/Cinematographer: Joel Peterson Narrator/Presenter: Betty Churcher Featured People: Betty Churcher.
