The Screen Guide

Darwin has one of the largest populations of homeless Aboriginal people in the country. They're called the 'Long Grassers', people who sleep under the stars either by choice or circumstance. To the authorities in Darwin, they're a nuisance and a growing problem, so new laws have been introduced to deal with them. This program examines homelessness from the Long Grassers' perspective, and those that try to help them. NB: This story was produced prior to the 2005 NT Government elections. From the Message Stick series.
