Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners are warned that this program may contain names that may relate to deceased persons.

Have you ever wondered why some Australian TV programs and films include a warning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to use caution as the film may contain images or voices of dead persons? And why is dying in country so important to indigenous people?

On this episode of Dying to Tell we explore the rituals and traditions of our first people when we meet Joe Ross, a Bunuba Elder from the Kimberley, and Dave Corstorphan, a registered nurse who spent many years working in remote indigenous communities.
