This excerpt of amateur footage shows Archie Roach sharing a story at a live show at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on 28 November 2007.

Despite being amateur footage, the vision and sound is fairly good and captures Archie talking in a relaxed fashion to the audience.

From the appreciative laughter and hushed tones of the crowd, it's obvious that people come to hear Archie speak just as much as to hear him sing.

This clip offers a great example of his gentle sense of humour and his big heart. The story about seeing photos of his grandmother and great-grandmother is very touching and a very personal moment to share.
