Imagine how you would react if you were a soldier ordered to commit an atrocity. Would you obey your orders or, risking severe punishment, obey your conscience? In this re-enactment discover how three senior officers dealt with such an issue in 1790 when Governor Arthur Phillip ordered the killing of Aboriginal men as a reprisal for the death of his gamekeeper. This re-enactment is the second in a series of three clips from 1972.
