518    Originally produced by Ronin Films in 1977. 
520    Without narration, and without identification of 
       individual speakers, the film provides an invaluable 
       record of two events which occurred in the final week of 
       January 1977, and which marked “a turning point in legal 
       recognition of Aboriginal rights to land”.  The film 
       documents discussions among traditional owners and white 
       officials and legal advisors, at a large gathering at 
       Batchelor, 100km south of Darwin. The first event was the 
       meeting of traditional owners of the Alligator Rivers 
       region of the Northern Territory to finalise their land 
       claim for presentation to the inquiry into the Ranger 
       Uranium Mine. Three items were needed to present to the 
       court to complete the case for returning ownership of the 
       land to the traditional owners: agreement on the area of 
       the land involved; agreement on who were the traditional 
       owners; and agreement on how the owners will manage the 
       land once they regain ownership.  This meeting then flowed
       into the second major event: the inaugural meeting of the 
       Northern Land Council, a body constituted to represent 
       traditional owners. The Federal Minister for Aboriginal 
       Affairs, Ian Viner, addresses the meeting and underlines 
       the importance of the day  as the first time that 
       traditional Aboriginal law is recognized by the Federal 
       Governments legal system.--Kanopy.
