Summary Offering an in-depth look into some of the most important Indigenous issues and telling vital stories that matter to all Australians. Australia's award-winning and longest running Indigenous current affairs show continues its unique video journalism style of storytelling but returns to screens with a fresh new look, investigating contemporary issues of concern to Indigenous Australians, through compelling human stories in a documentary-style format.Reporting from across Australia, the show will feature a personal journey each week, from prominent public personalities to local faces at the heart of Indigenous communities; it will explore a weekly issue through human eyes - telling fascinating stories with inspiring outcomes.Living Black revisits the historical journey made 50 years ago by a group of University students led by Aboriginal activist Charles Perkins, who set off on a bus ride around regional New South Wales to expose racism and prejudice in regional NSW. What they encountered along the way showed just how prevalent segregation and injustice existed in Australia. The trip would prove to be a turning point in the Australian civil rights movement.
