The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce
1 x 60 minutes for ABC Australia (2008)
The year is 1824 and the British penal colony of Van Diemen’s Land is little more than a living hell. The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce follows the final days of Irish convict Alexander Pearce’s life as he awaits execution. It draws a visceral and compelling picture of a hell on earth and tells how one man endured the unimaginable by doing the unthinkable.
