WIRE THROUGH THE HEART is the story of the struggle to cross a vast continent and build the telegraph line that would bring Australia to the world and the world to Australia.

In the mid 1800s John McDouall Stuart, a migrant from Scotland, was determined to cross the centre of Australia and reach the north coast.

Charles Todd had dreamt of constructing a telegraph line through the heart of the continent and in Stuart he found the man who could prove the inhospitable centre could be crossed.

It made Todd a hero, but Stuart, the man who made it possible, died in obscurity.
