Archie Roach: a life in song
Indigenous singer-songwriter Archie Roach became the voice of the stolen generations with his ballad Took the Children Away.
Removed from his family at the age of three, Archie grew up to be a troubled youth , before finding his feet through music and meeting his life-long partner Ruby Hunter, also a musician and member of the stolen generations.
Archie Roach traces his life from stolen child to indigenous leader and sings the songs which signpost his life.
