On Big Ideas today we remember history. It’s the 125th anniversary if Sir Henry Parker’s famed federation speech and we look back at the life and political achievements of a man who’s been called one of Australia’s most important founding fathers. And also in the program: an advocate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people explains how can we turn community action into national policy.
