Ancient Voices/Modern World: Australia

about the documentary

They have no word for time, or history. But they are the keepers of the oldest continuing civilization on Earth —a visionary culture that predates the Pyramids, the Bible, even the end of the last ice age. The Aborigines of Australia see themselves as the guardians of the world itself—a world they sing into being every day. Journey into the Australian bush with host Wade Davis, as he travels the mystical trails of the “Songlines” to unlock the secrets of a mysterious way of life known as the “Dreaming.”
