Keep Barefoot Rugby League Show on air with Maling Productions
- Senator Conroy, National Indigenous Television
The Barefoot Rugby League Show has been produced by an Indigenous production company Maling Productions. For the last four years the Panel program profiles Rugby League from The NRL NSW Cup, Intrust Super Cup QLD & Grassroots rugby league. Including visits to remote Aboriginal Communities.
Hosted by Indigenous staff members, Brad Cooke & David Peachey with feature stories covered by Paula Maling.
This program has been the most popular program and highest rating program on The National Indigenous Television service for the past four years.
This petition of cast and crew of the the Barefoot Rugby League Show draws the attention of the House of Representatives that in 2012, NITV has decided to not use in its 5th year of broadcasting Indigenous production company Maling Productions to produce the most popular and only live Indigenous Rugby League sports panel show, instead NITV is replacing The Barefoot Rugby League Show with a sports program that may not feature your voice as a community.
The new NITV sports show has stolen The Barefoot Rugby League Show identity and will be producing the sports show in-house with a non-Indigenous producer.
