8MMM (pronounced 8 Triple M), is a comedy about giving Aboriginal people a voice in a country with no ears and why, when all else fails - which it usually does - it's good to laugh. At the arse-end of the world, in the middle of nowhere, is Alice Springs - home to 8MMM Aboriginal Radio, the proud voice of the Blackfellas living here. It runs on the smell of an oily rag and the enthusiasm of its motley Indigenous crew. With meagre funding, the 8MMM team airs the day-to-day preoccupations of Alice Springs and its surrounds: housing, education, culture, money, alcohol and reconciliation.
