Croker Island Exodus2012single work film/TV 'When the Japanese bombed Darwin in 1942, 95 Aboriginal children from the Stolen Generation, along with their missionary carers, were trapped on Croker Island, 200 kilometres off the Northern Territory coast. Their only route to safety was by boat to Barclay Point, then across Arnhem Land by foot, canoe and truck. They reached their final destination, a Methodist farm just south of Sydney, 44 days and almost 5000 kilometres later. Seventy years on, the now-elderly travellers look back on their epic journey and fractured childhoods.'
