Karla Grant sits down with former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull where he reveals for the first time, in detail, why he did not support an Indigenous voice enshrined in the nation's constitution, a key recommendation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and why he ultimately rejected the proposal in October 2017.
After a five-year struggle, a brave Gumbangerri family find where their lost son and infant brother was buried in the southern hemisphere's largest cemetery, and had him exhumed and reburied on country.

Karla Grant joins the Kelly family as part of this special investigation and repatriation of baby Michael's remains.
