According to the Australian Reconciliation Barometer, six out of 10 Australians have had little to no contact with First Australians?
First Contact, a brand new series by SBS, explores this issue by taking six outspoken Australians and immersing them in Aboriginal Australia for the first time. Hosted by Ray Martin, they will experience the workings of Indigenous and government organisations, private employers and other institutions that provide vital services to Aboriginal people.
The Network Event First Contact starts Tuesday 18 November 8:30pm | SBS ONE | NITV
