Even with its obvious shortcomings (Peter spending too much time with those
Scottish/English immigrants), there was a good exploration of the evils of
imperialism and colonization. Particularly moving was the scene of that man
returning to the gravesite of his native Australian mother after 42 years.

Much more could have been done, but the documentary brought back happy
of my visits to Fiji, Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand (I do recommend
soaking/soothing bath at Rotorua).
