National Indigenous Television (NITV), and the wider SBS network, invite communities to deepen their understanding of January 26 and what it means to be Australian through the upcoming programming slate, Always Was, Always Will Be.

A schedule curated to highlight themes of Country, Identity and Nation will be featured throughout the week, January 19-26, across SBS channels, including documentaries, news, movies and more.

The Sunrise Ceremony, presented by NITV's John Paul Janke and Network 10's Narelda Jacobs, who also host NITV's The Point,will air live from Bundjalung and Yugambeh Country in Coolangatta, QLD on Wednesday 26 January at 6:00am, and will mark the commencement of a daytime simulcast of programs across NITV and SBS. The beautiful and insightful program is led by First Nations perspectives, and includes reflections from non-Indigenous and multicultural voices on Australia's past, present and future. Guests will include Wik and Soloman Islander man and musician Ziggy Ramo, Munanjahli and South Sea Islander woman and Associate Professor Chelsea Watego, and prominent journalist Kerry O'Brien. The Sunrise Ceremony will also be simulcast on Channel 10.

A short introductory film titled The Land We Live On will be broadcast prior to the Sunrise Ceremony at 5:55am. In the short film, eight year old Wiradjuri filmmaker Penelope Towney will perform an Acknowledgement of Country for the Dharawal and Yuin Nations, followed by a short reflection on the significance and meaning of a Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country.

At 7:30pm on Wednesday January 26, TikTok will partner with NITV in a live concert - TikTok and NITV Present: First Sounds. Hosted by Tyrone Pynor, Bianca Hunt and Grayson McCarthy-Grogan, the concert will feature a specially curated line up of both emerging and established artists including Barkaa, JK-47, Nooky, Becca Hatch, Jesswar, Kobie Dee, Dallas Woods, Kaiit and more. In this innovative cross platform simulcast, communities across Australia will have more access than ever to these performances and celebration of culture. TikTok and NITV Present: First Sounds will be simulcast on NITV and SBS Viceland, and will also be live on NITV's TikTok, @nitv.

At 9:30pm, Larissa Behrendt's documentary Araatika! Rise Up will have its free to air premiere, simulcast across SBS and NITV. The documentary explores how a group of NRL greats came together to create a new pre-game ceremony in response to the Maori Haka - one that could celebrate Australia's First Nations cultures. After fellow Indigenous players Preston Campbell, Timana Tahu and George Rose devised their own pre-game performance, Dean Widders began a journey to bring this dance - and First Nations pride more broadly - to the game.

Tanya Denning-Orman, SBS Director of Indigenous Content, said: NITV proudly reflects and celebrates Australia's diverse First Nations peoples, showcasing our experiences, perspectives and contributions. This year's January 26 programming across the SBS network will reflect this once again, providing a platform for our voices to be heard, for an honest reflection of this country's history and what's needed for a more united and equal future. We invite all Australians to come together to join the conversation.
