The multi-award-winning Archie Roach song 'Took the Children Away' (1990), about the Stolen Generations, was added to the NFSA's Sounds of Australia in 2013. In this clip, Roach introduces the song at the Sounds of Australia launch that year in Melbourne. 

Apart from the clarity of vision and audio there's little to be said about this recording. It provides an adequate and useful documentation of the event which was possibly all it was intended to achieve.
