Islam and Australian Aboriginals. 27 minutes.


Sea cucumbers, feral camels and Malcolm X. They have all played their part in the centuries-old link between Australian Aboriginals and Islam. This program explores this link for the BBC World Service's 'Heart and Soul'; it uncovers how Islam is still playing a role in the lives of many Aborigines from the rural outback to the bustling city of Sydney.
