Bush Mechanics Push Warlpiri on to the Screen

The ABC and Warlpiri Media's 'Bush Mechanics - The Series' gave viewers a unique and hilarious insight into both contemporary and traditional Aboriginal culture. The four part series followed the exploits and ingenous car repair techniques of the Warlpiri Bush Mechanics, as they travelled through central Australia. The popular series highlighted the opportunities that exist for the creation of a National Indigenous Broadcasting or Communications Services, which would include a TV station for Indigenous programming and greatly boost the promotion of languages.
