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.

In the final episode of this epic series, monsoon torrents wash away the heat during the season the Aboriginal people of Kakadu call Gudjewg. With the storms comes unpredictable mayhem every day: floodwaters rise, feral buffalo stalk unwary tourists, locals get washed towards crocodile-infested waters, and savage winds flatten trees - choking kilometres of access roads.
