Archie Roach accepts his ARIA for Best Indigenous Release for his album Charcoal Lane. This footage is an excerpt from the ABC TV series Blackout (1991) in an episode that looked at Archie's life and career.

You could almost hear a pin drop during Archie's acceptance speech. There's no need to do anything but keep the camera on him and give him time to speak. Any cutaways to the audience would have lessened the impact of his words and the production team wisely choose not to.

Producers:
Llew Cleaver and Richard Reisz
