When the British government colonised Australia, they completely ignored the original inhabitants, declaring the land empty of people - terra nullius. From then on, Aborigines were treated as non-citizens and denied the rights that others enjoyed. Vote Yes for Aborigines covers the historic fight for Aboriginal citizenship rights and the lead-up to the 1967 Referendum. The program marks the 40th anniversary of the Referendum, screening on its actual date.
