Introducing Motherlode, a Ranieri and Co. production. The gripping story about the birth of computer hacking from an unlikely centre – Melbourne, Australia. It was here teenage boys, and they were mostly boys, hacked into some of the biggest organisations in the world. It’s also where a young hacker, Julian Assange, cut his teeth on computers and went on to develop Wikileaks, the most disruptive website the world has seen. But Wikileaks didn’t just spring up out of nowhere. It was 20 years in the making. Motherlode reveals the technological and political motivations behind it.
