Abstract:

Six out of ten who call Australia home have had little or no contact with Indigenous people. The provocative, controversial and dramatic television event First Contact returns to SBS with Ray Martin as host. The 3 x 1 hour constructed documentary series takes a group of six well-known Australians, with strong opinions on a unique journey into Aboriginal Australia. The six are ... singer songwriter Natalie Imbruglia, television personality Ian Dicko' Dickson, former Miss Universe Australia Renae Ayris, actress Nicki Wendt, comedian Tom Ballard and former One Nation politician, David Oldfield. The group meet face to face with individuals, families and communities who define Indigenous Australia today. They are immersed into Aboriginal culture, and experience what life is really like on the ground for the nation's First Peoples. Leaving their high profile lives behind the six are taken deep into a world far away from their everyday reality. They are confronted by the stories they find and the people they meet. It is an experience that reveals the beauty, hope, history and challenges of Aboriginal Australia. In this second series, the six question themselves, their Indigenous hosts and one another, to try and find answers to burning questions. From alcohol abuse to education. From incarceration to the Stolen Generations. From a suicide epidemic to Constitutional Recognition. Through the heat of argument, light is shed. As stereotypes are broken, a process of education and understanding begins. Guided by award winning journalist Ray Martin, the group are tested in extraordinary situations. Their beliefs are challenged, their emotions pushed to the limit. 28 days. Six well-known Aussies. One life-changing journey.

Episode One : The journey begins The six are brought to the heart of Aboriginal Australia: Uluru. They're been told that they'll be spending the next four weeks immersed into Aboriginal Australia. But other than that they know nothing about the journey that lies ahead. Waiting in the rock's shadow to greet them is award winning journalist, Ray martin. it's not long before debate is sparked as the six clash over land rights and who owns Australia's most iconic natural landmark.

Episode Two : The six gather on the side of the Stuart Highway just south of Darwin, where Ray martin reveals their next destination. So where are they going? A place that's been called the 'forgotten town'. the group heads south towards the tiny town of Elliott - half way between Darwin and Alice Springs. For the next two days the six will discover what it's like to live in over-crowded housing and see first-hand the dire conditions some Aboriginal people face every day. They meet local resident 'SK' who lives in a four bedroom house with 13 members of her family.

Episode Three ; The six are on their way to Derby in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia. Nicki may be finding the flight on the nine-seater plane terrifying but it's nothing compared to where she's heading to next. Ray martin reveals that in a few moments a van from the West Kimberley Regional Prison will pick them up. But in a dramatic twist, not all of the group make it inside. For the others, this is a journey into the unknown.
