great program!

As an American, I really don't have the realistic grasp or understanding of indegenous culture and social conditons in Australia. It isn't exactly equivalent to the balck or native Indian cultures we have here in US. I learn a lot from listening to stories. It is educational and personal. I really enjoy the program.
