'Family Confidential goes behind the scenes with some of Australia’s most famous and influential families as they share, often for the first time on television, the private truths behind the well-known public face. Family members candidly reveal the profound repercussions of the public and private events that have marked their family’s extraordinary trajectory. Each brings their own perspective to bear on their family saga. Sometimes confrontational, often emotional and always intimate, these revelations provide rare and compelling new insights into some of our most significant national figures.' (ABC website)

Liz Butler, Sally Dingo's sister. When Sally Butler met Ernie Dingo, it was the beginning of a unique bond that would bridge two very different cultures. Against advice, the couple married - and Sally embraced her husband's complex, extended Indigenous family. Meanwhile, Ernie defied the stereotypes to become one of Australia's most famous celebrities. Already a popular film and television star, he became a household name as the host of The Great Outdoors. But Sally had a private heartache. She had been told she was unable to have children. Then fate intervened, and Sally and Ernie became the parents of two children - a son Jurra, and a daughter Wilara. But little did the couple realise the bonds in place that already connected them. It seemed on the surface a perfect union. But just two years ago, Ernie's celebrity came crashing down in a media storm that would cost far more than his celebrity career. This is the story of an unconventional family - its resilience in the face of unlikely odds, and of the capacity for love to triumph amongst adversity. (Source: )
