An Australian first foray into the slow TV movement, this is an immersive journey on Australia's most iconic railway that reveals, in real time, the stunning topographical vistas and dramatic palette changes from Adelaide to Darwin, while unpacking our Indigenous, multicultural and social history in the most surprising way. The train line and subsequent development of central Australia and the growth of Darwin, Alice Springs, and Port Augusta can be attributed to local Indigenous communities' knowledge of surviving the harsh desert, as well as early immigrants, including Europeans, Chinese and the Afghan cameleers the Ghan is named after.

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.

This telemovie tells the story of Eddie 'Koiki' Mabo, the Torres Strait Islander, who left school at 15, yet spearheaded the High Court challenge that overthrew the fiction of terra nullius. It traces Koiki's life, through his early exile from his beloved Murray Island, his years of working on the trochus trawlers and the outback railways, to his decision to embrace activism in order to change rights and freedoms for Indigenous Australians. It also tells of his struggles to begin a school specifically for Aboriginal and Islander children.

In 1931, Harold Lasseter's body was found after perishing in Central Australia's deserts. His diary tantalisingly revealed he'd discovered a fabulous seven mile seam of gold, worth millions, but would 'give it all for a loaf of bread'. Despite hundreds of expeditions since, the gold has never been found. Obsessed with solving the mystery, filmmaker Luke Walker discovers Lasseter's 85-year-old son Bob, still wandering the desert, on a quixotic mission to find the gold that killed his father and destroyed his childhood. But now, 80 years on, is it still possible to piece together the fragments of history Lasseter left behind?
