A new, 14-episode season of the ground-breaking current affairs program Living Black premieres on NITV this April, and is Australia’s longest-running Indigenous current affairs television program.  

Join Western Arrernte woman, Walkley Award-winning presenter, Executive Producer and journalist Karla Grant as she interviews some of Australia’s most prominent First Nations peoples in the program’s 21st year. 

Living Black continues to investigate critical national and international issues through a unique First Nations lens, through compelling stories told predominantly by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This season, guests include musician Emily Wurramara, comedian Andy Saunders, former entertainer and radio broadcaster Candy Devine, photographer Barbara McGrady, artist Blak Douglas, Cherokee chef, caterer and student of traditional Indigenous cuisines Nico Albert Williams (ᏣᎳᎩᎯ ᎠᏰᎵ Cherokee Nation) and more.  

The season also includes powerful investigations, uncovering black cladding of businesses across the country, and the impact of the Aboriginal Housing Company’s redevelopment of The Block in Redfern, with more details to be announced in the coming weeks.  

Living Black host, Karla Grant, said:

“At Living Black, we remain committed to sharing the stories of our people.”

“We continue to give Indigenous peoples a voice across the country, and this year we’re also going global – interviewing international talent about issues that affect all First Nations peoples.”

“I’m looking forward to a new season which features timely investigations and inspiring interviews.” 

SBS Director of Indigenous Content and Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr woman, Tanya Denning-Orman, said: 

“2023 was a massive year for NITV. It is more important now than ever before to highlight Indigenous peoples’ stories and engage in truth-telling.” 

“Living Black continues to do this through important investigations and by shining a light on our peoples’ lived experiences. It’s no wonder that Karla Grant and Living Black are synonymous with NITV and SBS.”  

Living Black will be available to stream for free on SBS On Demand and will be subtitled in Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese.

Watch Living Black weekly from Monday 22 April at 8.30pm on NITV and on SBS from Tuesday 23 April at 10.30pm.
