Rob Collins goes on a journey through time & Country with our next generation of knowledge holders to investigate our ancestors innovations and inventions.
Our series offers the most up to date, evidence based and culturally inclusive research this country has ever seen around First Nations inventions and innovations.
For the first time we’ve gathered Australia’s leading young Indigenous researchers, archaeologists, astronomers & Cultural rangers to join Rob Collins on this extraordinary adventure across Australia’s vast and ancient land, islands and sea.
The First Inventors celebrates the ingenuity, resilience and inventiveness of our people. Knowledge that is as relevant today as it has been for millennia.
Viewers can expect a deeper understanding of how climactic conditions inspired our First People here to turn their mind to science for solutions.
The series provides a unique opportunity for Non-Indigenous Australian audiences who may never had any interaction with Indigenous Australia before. Sharing what we know and what we are all learning is integral.
Our series sets out to highlight how our people have always tackled extreme climate events, pandemics, droughts, rising sea levels and Ice ages. We’ll share our holistic relationship with the cosmos, seasons, plants, wildlife, song, Country, water and fire.
Some parts to these stories have been lost; together an army of researchers working with community will join forces to piece together this incredible human history. Stories that demonstrate the ingenuity and resilience of the oldest living culture in the world.
After much consultation I’m proud to say that you will meet some extraordinary and compelling Elders, investigators and next generation knowledge holders.
With your help we can progress securely into pre-production. We'd like to secure our funds before November 30.
