To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the High Court's decision on the MABO case in 1992, this half-hour special delves into Eddie Mabo's life away from the courts and the media headlines. It is seen through the eyes of Mabo's daughter Gail who speaks intimately about his personality, family and his passion and drive to make things right again. We also hear from his wife, Bonita Mabo. Inevitably his fight for land rights turned him into one of the most controversial Australian figures of the twentieth century.
