Synopsis
Based on Bob Randall’s biography ‘Songman: Story of an Aboriginal Elder’. Bob is an indigenous man who lives beside Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) in central Australia. Based on his own personal journey, he reveals why indigenous Australians are struggling in a modern world and explains what needs to be done in order for them to advance. A tale of indigenous wisdom clashing against materialist notions of progress, this is not only a story of one man and his people but the story of the human race. (60 minutes).
