Summary: 'Shocking pink': Radiophonic work.

Musicians: Hollis Taylor (violin, viola, violoncello, piano), Jon Rose (violin, tenor violin, piano) and Clayton Thomas (bass). Produced by Hollis Taylor and Jane Ulman.

Summary: 'Daisy Bates': In 1913 Daisy Bates went to live in the South Australian desert, staying nearly thirty years. This work explores her death, expressing both the passing of what she represented, and the sorrow over the impact of white culture on Aboriginal culture.
