Namatjira, Scott Rankin , 2010 single work drama
'Albert Namatjira was a man of firsts: the first successful indigenous artist and the first indigenous man to be made an Australian citizen. At the height of his fame in the 1950s Albert Namatjira's shows sold out within minutes. If you didn't own one of his paintings you probably had a print in your lounge room.

'He also supported over six hundred members of his community, lost two of his ten children to malnutrition, was forbidden to own land, imprisoned for having a drink with his friends, and died a broken man.

'Namatjira is a whole-hearted tribute to a great man. (From the publisher's website.)
Ngapartji Ngapartji, Scott Rankin , Trevor Jamieson , 2005 single work drama
'Ngapartji Ngapartji' traces the true story of one of the world's oldest nations - the Spinifex people - and their encounter with the Cold War and particularly the British atomic testing at Maralinga.
