Broadcast date: Thursday 11 July 2013
Bob Randall”s early childhood was spent in the shadow of Uluru, and his extended family introduced him into the traditional way of life for desert people.
Although most people would see the desert as harsh and unforgiving, Bob was raised to see it as a place that nurtured him, like a mother – the desert told him where to find what he needed to survive.
When he was little Bob was taken from his family, and he later became famous for his song Brown Skin Baby, which brought national and international attention to the stories of children separated from their parents.
