Your program on the 27th of Feb. has the line "and its indigenous people: the Aborigines are one of the world's oldest civilizations."

Point in passing the Aborigines are NOT one of the world's oldest civilizations but one of it oldest cultures. It may seem like a minor point but it is rather major. We who live in the cities, the so-called 'Takers' of the world, are part of the civilizations curse, while the Aboriginal folk are part of a culture, the so-called 'Leavers,' who tend to live at one with the world as they find it.

I might suggest you read on your next long flight
