Subject

Indigenous, Biography, Addiction

Description

When Bill and Mick Thaiday grew up on Palm Island in the 1950s, it was radio that took their minds away from the strict regime imposed by the Aboriginal Protection Act. Later, it would also free them from the grip of alcohol addiction and start them on a journey that's lasted almost 20 years. Together they have travelled like a couple of nomads, developing Aboriginal radio stations in the remote areas of Australia. Their aim is to give a voice to Aboriginal people where their parents and grandparents had none.
