Four Corners - Price of Equality, The
Frank Bennett examines the action of the Gurindji stockmen who had gone on strike over the right to equal pay at Wave Hill station in the Northern Territory. He finds that in the year before the citizenship referendum, the station owners had exploited them terribly. Their strike sparks a chord among Australians.
Public support for the Gurindji culminates in the first return of land to Aboriginal people signified by Gough Whitlam pouring red sand into the hand of one of the original strikers, Vincent Lingiari, in 1975.
