Early CAAMA promo

Aboriginal Radio in Aboriginal country

'In the early 1980s, Freda Glynn (Thornton), Phillip Batty and John Macumba established the first Aboriginal Media organisation and radio station in Alice Springs (CAAMA)

This is their very first video production and one of David Batty's first films. 

Look closely at the end and you will see a very young Warwick Thornton on his mustang pushbike. 

Warning…most people in the video have passed away.'
