In 2006, two of the country's best-known and loved personalities, actor Deborah Mailman and Olympian Cathy Freeman, set out to meet remote Aboriginal communities from Broome to Arnhem Land to discover what life is like for people living there and to hear stories of their ancestors.

Their trip was documented by Lonely Planet TV in the four-part seriesĀ Going Bush.

In this excerpt from episode 4, the two women reach a small remote community in Arnhem Land. They join emerging Aboriginal band Narbarlek in their recording studio and then speak to some of the elders in the community.
