In My Blood It Runs
Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter, speaks two Indigenous languages, but is ‘failing’ in school. With little space in the western system for Dujuan’s language and culture his grandmother Carol is fighting a loving battle to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he become another statistic in juvenile detention or the welfare system. We walk with him as he grapples this educational schism and somewhere in-between finds a space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self. With the guidance of Arrernte Elders our shared vision is that it will not reiterate the ignorance or the statistics of injustice, abuse and neglect we so often see when we turn on the news, but will creatively accentuate the strengths, the insights of Dujuan, his family, his community and through their story, First Nations families everywhere.

No Woman No Cry
The song I want played at my funeral Bob Marley – ‘No Woman, No Cry’ I live in the Caribbean [on Necker Island] and any Bob Marley song would be delightful. I’d have a Caribbean funeral with lots of good reggae bands. I’ve been living here since my 20s, when I found this lovely island.
This was the first piece of music that Virgin Records put out. [Oldfield] was 19 years old and had recorded every single instrument on the album. I went to eight different record companies and nobody would put it out, so we decided to create our own record company and put it out. It literally sold millions of copies [‘Tubular Bells’ has sold more than 15 million copies to date]. That led on to us signing people like Peter Gabriel, Janet Jackson and the Spice Girls. Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Galactic may not be here today without ‘Tubular Bells’.

Love Me Tender
I was brought up in the countryside, near Guildford. We weren’t allowed to watch television, but we were allowed to borrow friends’ scratchy records – and this was most definitely a scratchy old single. I just loved his music; Elvis was the man. I was under 10 and he was someone people my age identified with.
