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.'
