This is the film I recently shot on the dispute over nuclear waste being stored on aboriginal land at Muckaty Station, north of Tennant Creek, in Australia’s N.T. There’s a blog for SBS’s Living Black here.

I see Picasa has an embed gallery feature – but it doesn’t want to talk to WordPress, swines! Anyhow, some pictures from my recent trip across the N.T.

I just got back from the Northern Territory where I’ve been making four films for Living Black and SBS News. Living Black is the indigenous affairs strand on SBS, a magazine style show which screens Sundays at 16.30. The good news is that I managed to do some good investigative journalism which I had a ball doing, while meeting some very interesting people from regions the national media tends to ignore.
I blogged on one of these regions for Living Black this week here and will add some thoughts to this blog when I’ve gathered them. In the mean time my first film on the Wave Hill walk-off/Gurindji freedom day will be on Sunday the 4th September, and the next one on the Muckaty nuclear waste dump plans on the 11th of September.
Update: Here’s the Wave Hill walk-off film:
