Clip description

Freda Glynn (director of CAAMA) talks about broadcasting in Aboriginal languages in areas where Aboriginal languages are the first language spoken. Phillip Batty (deputy director of CAAMA) talks about utilizing the national satellite in a way useful to Aboriginal peoples in the remote areas of Australia.

Curator’s notes

The Federal Government’s announcement that there would be a national satellite (AUSSAT) encouraged the use of the satellite for Aboriginal peoples in the remote areas of Australia. Freda Glynn and Phillip Batty talk about the effect of commercial television being broadcast unrestricted into Indigenous communities and how it would have a harmful affect on communities where an Aboriginal language is the first language spoken.
