NITV series shines light on global struggle
A new five-part current affairs series will bring stories from Indigenous broadcasters around the world to Australian television.
National Indigenous Television announced its Nations without Borders series this week.
The announcement came as representatives from the world’s Indigenous TV networks meet in Sydney for a biennial four-day conference hosted by NITV.
NITV journalist and presenter Natalie Ahmat will front Nations Without Borders.
The series will feature stories from Māori Television in New Zealand, ‘Ōiwi TV in Hawai’i, the Aboriginal People’s Television Network in Canada and Taiwan Indigenous Television.
The series covers the tale of a Canadian Cree woman in incarceration, the Amis people of Eastern Taiwan’s fight against commercial and government property developers, and Maori tribes finding solutions to homelessness in New Zealand.
Nations Without Borders will be broadcast on NITV from December 5 at 9pm.
The next meeting of the World Indigenous Broadcasters will be in New Zealand in 2018 and hosted by Māori Television.
