Upcoming ABC comedy 8MMM Aboriginal Radio, originally set for ABC2, will premiere on ABC later this month.
Based in Alice Springs, 8MMM runs on the smell of an oily rag and the enthusiasm of its motley crew. The 8MMM team air the day-to-day preoccupations of Alice Springs and its surrounds. But like most Indigenous organisations it’s run by whitefellas and when no-Indigenous people come to work in Aboriginal organisations they easily fall into one of three categories – missionaries, mercenaries or misfits – the 3Ms. For the 3Ms working at 8MMM saving Aboriginal people from themselves is hard work. For the Aboriginal people being saved all the time is even harder!
The comedy stars Geoff Morrell, Shari Sebbens, Ian Meadows and Trisha Morton-Thomas.
Wednesday 29th April at 9.30pm on ABC.
