Twenty-first century Australia is built on the premise that the British Government acquired title to the country more than 200 years ago. Although significant shifts in our understanding have taken place in recent decades, this basic ownership has been unchallenged.

But what if it could be proved that Aboriginal people never lost sovereignty over Australia? If our governments had to negotiate to salvage their legitimacy, could they come to terms with this shift in the balance of power and forge a new understanding between black and white Australia?

Speaker - Michael Anderson
