Producers: Lois Cook and ABC Open North Coast Producer Catherine Marciniak

Wednesday 15 July 2015 | 6pm - 7.30pm

The theme of this year's NAIDOC week is that we all stand on sacred groundwhich is exactly what local Nyangbul woman Lois Cook discovers when she starts researching the history of her great-grandfather Bubba Jack Cook. Lois takes on the role of a history detective to find out if there's any evidence to support her family's stories of massacres and a baby found in the reeds.

Join Geraldine Doogue on ABC's Compass program for the premier of 'Babe in the Reeds' on Sunday 5 July at 6.30pm for this special NAIDOC Week story.

Then on Wednesday 15 July 2015 join us at NRCG for a special screening and meet the filmmakers in a Q & A session directly after the screening in the Gallery.
