Podcast | Uncle Jack Charles on finding family

Uncle Jack Charles is known as many things – an Indigenous activist, a survivor of the Stolen Generation, a former addict and a brilliant actor. The story of his life has been told many times, through documentary, memoir and theatre. Now, he is going on an incredible journey of self-discovery for the SBS show ‘Who Do You Think You Are’, where he traces his ancestry and reconnects with living family members.

He speaks to Laura Murphy-Oates about his life, career, and the impact of finding family.
