THE STORY OF A GULF COUNTRY AND NORTHERN TERRITORY LEGEND - BILL HARNEY
In a land where everything and nothing is black and white, writer/historian/storyteller Jan "Yarn" Wositzky tracks the ‘expert’ on Aborigines - Bill Harney. The story is scripted from Harney’s many books, radio broadcasts, personal papers and a lifetime of stories. The account of Jan Wositzky’s own travels, research, chance meetings and a thirst for knowledge, spread over many years, also finds it's way interlaced into the script.
Known to Aborigines throughout the top end of Australia as "Bilarni", the story tells of an ‘uneducated’ NT bushman who after WW1 lived amongst Aborigines: as a lover, husband and father, a Patrol Officer, grazier and bush worker and who in 1957 became known as the ‘Custodian of the Rock’ (Uluru).
