Compass - Language Man, The

John Bradley was in his early 20s when as a new teacher he was sent to the remote aboriginal community of Borroloola in the Northern Territory. For most of his adult life he has been working with the Yanyuwa, documenting their language and culture, and is now a fluent speaker of the last. Our journey is an unusual look at indigenous culture - through words and meanings - and a record of change within one man. The untimely death of Dr Bradley's son uncovered a deep spiritual bond with the Yanyuwa that surprised even himself.
