In this final episode of First Contact season two, the group finds themselves at the West Kimberley Regional Prison to experience what life is like in an Aboriginal prison. As night falls, they have a decision to make. A cell is available. Who in the group will take up the offering of joining the 10,000 Indigenous people locked up every night in Australia? In the morning, the group heads due east to the tiny town of Coen in far north Queensland, one of four communities to be part of a radical welfare reform experiment. They experience a controversial teaching technique that aims to close the education gap and get Aboriginal kids reading, writing and ultimately into work to escape the cycle of welfare dependency, and debate and opinions are stirred up again.

This controversial documentary film draws on filmmaker John Pilger's long association with Indigenous Australians; an investigation into Australia's colonial past and wealthy present, setting out to break the stereotypes of the first people of Australia. This film is both a personal journey for Pilger and a universal story of power and resistance, of how modern societies can be divided between those who conform and the dystopian world of those who do not.

Filmmaker Warwick Thornton investigates our relationship to the Southern Cross, in this fun and thought-provoking ride through Australia's cultural and political landscape. He takes us on a journey through this five-star constellation's astronomical, colonial and Indigenous history to the present day. For Aboriginal people, the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual. By contrast, the star-adorned Eureka Flag was emblematic of protest and defiance, a quality that caused it to be adopted by activists, and lately, the darker side of Australian nationalism.

In Australia today between 40-65 percent of Aboriginal adults are functionally illiterate in English. But out in northwest New South Wales moves are afoot to whittle away at this appalling statistic, and give hope to some of the most marginalised people in our country. Using a Cuban method called Yes I Can, a group known as the Literacy for Life Foundation are moving into towns, setting up classrooms, and offering Aboriginal men and women an opportunity to learn to read and write. And it seems there are no shortage of takers. Broadcast by NITV as You Are Here: In My Own Words.

Greig Pickhaver is on a mission to discover the secrets of some of Australia's most iconic cities. Travelling to Fremantle, Fitzroy and Bondi, Pickhaver uncovers the hidden history and unsung residents who've helped shape these places into the cities they are today. In the trendy, latte lover's paradise of Fitzroy, Victoria, Pickhaver learns how a former slum where many European migrants made their home evolved into one of Melbourne's most desirable suburbs. Fitzroy was a hub for activism and the centre of the new call for Aboriginal rights in the 1970s, and once welcomed an unlikely and unscheduled visitor: Muhammad Ali.
