UPDATE: Changes to planned events as a result of COVID-19 developments have impacted NITV and SBSs programming schedule. Please visit sbs.com.au/guide for up-to-date programming information, and visit sbs.com.au/nitv for news and developments.

All Australians are invited to celebrate NAIDOC 2021 with a week-long dedicated schedule on National Indigenous Television (NITV), and a range of programming and content across the SBS network, celebrating and reflecting on the history, cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Inspired by the 2021 NAIDOC theme, Heal Country!, the slate focuses on the strength and survival of the oldest continuing cultures on the planet, from Saturday 3 July to Sunday 11 July.

This year's multiplatform offering includes the exclusive broadcast of the 2021 National NAIDOC Awards*, the return of Australia's only all-Indigenous breakfast television program, the premiere of docu-comedy History Bites Back, as well as a range of documentaries, movies, news and current affairs programs and features across the network. Educational resources through SBS Learn will also be made available to schools nationally to encourage students to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and history.

Director of Indigenous Content at SBS, Tanya Denning-Orman, said: We are excited to once again be bringing Australians together to celebrate the achievements of our First Nations Peoples, encourage a deeper understanding of our shared history, embrace First Nations culture and knowledge for Australia's future, for NAIDOC in 2021.

We are proud to continue our partnership with the National NAIDOC Committee as the Principal Media Partner and official Education Partner, and look forward to delivering an offering across NITV and the SBS network bringing a range of perspectives to all corners of Australia, championing First Nations voices and faces, and sharing stories that inspire, instil pride and lead to greater understanding and inclusion in this country.

Our NAIDOC offering across the network continues to grow and reach more Australians each year. It's central to SBS's important role in the media landscape as a space to share stories of First Nations cultures, communities and conversations with all Australians, with NITV at the heart of the network providing a trusted platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices and experiences.

The NAIDOC Awards kick off the week, returning for 2021 after a 2020 hiatus. Tune in to NITV from 6:30pm on Saturday 3 July to catch all the stars on the red carpet, before the National NAIDOC Awards air live on NITV and SBS VICELAND from 7:00pm. The Awards recognise individuals who have contributed their talents, expertise, knowledge and lives to the First Peoples of this land. The NAIDOC Awards Aftershow follows from 9:00pm - Bianca Hunt, Tyrone Pynor and Gilbert McAdam will wrap up the night, featuring interviews with the NAIDOC Award winners, as well as all the memorable moments from the ceremony. At 9:30pm, The NAIDOC Award Winners Stories 2021 will give viewers an insight into the incredible lives and achievements of the NAIDOC Award winners.

Following The NAIDOC Award Winners Stories 2021 is the premiere of the third instalment of Bamay on NITV at 10:00pm. The slow TV experience will explore the Central Desert region from a bird's eye view in a feast for the eyes, alongside informative factoids.

From Monday 5 July, Shahni Wellington and Ryan Liddle will be returning to helm Big Mob Brekky, Australia's only all-Indigenous television breakfast program. Last year, the program broke new ground in Australian TV, and this year it will return to NITV and SBS at 7:30am each weekday of NAIDOC week. Audiences can look forward to big laughs, big news stories and big yarns. Viewers can catch up on SBS VICELAND at 12:00pm as well as on SBS On Demand.

On Sunday 11 July at 8:30pm, History Bites Back premieres on NITV and SBS VICELAND. Directed, written and presented by Trisha Morton-Thomas (Occupation Native, The Song Keepers, Total Control) alongside Craig Anderson (Black Comedy, Occupation Native, Red Christmas), and starring Steven Oliver (Black Comedy, Faboriginal, Looky Looky, Here Comes Cooky) and Elaine Crombie (Nowhere Boys, Top End Wedding, Top of the Lake). The cast come together to bite back at negative social media comments and steer the conversation towards the historical context of the fortunes and misfortunes of Indigenous Australians - from social security, citizenship and equal wages to nuclear bombs and civil actions.

At 8:30pm on Monday 5 July, NITV's current affairs program Living Black, hosted by Karla Grant, will investigate what happens when ancient stone tools are discovered in our own backyards and asks if they should be placed back on Country or put on display for reconciliation and education.

Over on SBS at 7:30pm Tuesday 6 July, Who Do You Think You Are? will explore Uncle Jack Charles' history. Venerated actor and survivor of the Stolen Generations, Uncle Jack will uncover details of the father he never knew and make connections that will complete the jigsaw of his paterna
