  • SBS Charter.

    This charter sets out the principal functions of the SBS and a number of duties it has to fulfil. These functions include the requirement to contribute to meeting the communication needs of Australia’s multicultural society (including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities), to increase awareness and promote understanding of these cultures, and to contribute to the retention of languages and provide content in these preferred languages.
  • The Koori History Website - Koori History Video Clips.

    Includes a collection of historical video clips, including sketches from Basically Black (ABC-TV 1973), the first all-Aboriginal TV show – a satirical political review written and performed by members of the Black Theatre: Bob Maza, Gary Foley, Aileen Corpus, Zac Martin, Bindi Williams.

On commercial filmmaking: Even making a musical out of Bran Nue Dae, there is still content matter in there about Indigenous identity. That is absolutely at the heart of it. So if you want to get something out about that, then most people need to wrap it in something commercial because that is what will get your message further. That’s why I like lighter films that reach big audiences because you have the opportunity to speak to that audience effectively.
