The final episode of First Contact aired on SBS and NITV last night, followed by a Reunion Special which brought the cast members and many of the Indigenous men and women they had met back together.

If you missed episode three, or the Reunion Special, you can catch up on SBS On Demand. And, of course, the explosive first season is still available to stream too. 

In episode three, the cast travelled to a prison focused on rehabilitation, a school driven by values of grit and optimism, and had discussions with Indigenous Australians about language, culture and welfare dependency.

Afterward, in the Reunion Special, sparks continued to fly between David Oldfield and the other cast members, and the Indigenous Australians who had taken part in the series had a chance to have their voices heard.
