Summary
Episode masters; First Australians is a seven episode documentary series produced by Blackfella Films and screened on SBS in 2008. Seven years in the making from conception to completion, with extensive Aboriginal community consultation and at a cost of $4.855 million, First Australians is a ground breaking presentation of Indigenous history produced, directed and told from the perspective of Australia’s first people. The series brought together the current work and opinions of many Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal leaders and academics with specialist historical knowledge, who were extensively and expertly interviewed on camera
