The Mark's Murders
S2 - EPISODE 10 (26:26 Mins)

On the other hand, Jonathan and Margaret Young prospered. After a few more years on the McIntyre, they sold Umbercollie and lived the remainder of their lives in comfort in the Hunter. John Watts went from stockman to politician. He used the murder of Mark’s son partly as justification of the continuation of the Native Police in Queensland.
