ABC1, Sunday, 8.30pm ★★★★★ The telemovies Hawke and Paper Giants have shown just how compelling TV portraits of famous Australians can be. Now it’s time to add Mabo to the list. This ABC telemovie details the life of Torres Strait Islander Eddie ‘‘Kioki’’ Mabo (Jimi Bani), who campaigned for indigenous land rights and spearheaded the landmark High Court challenge to terra nullius. Mabo isn’t dry history. Eddie’s growing activism is contrasted with his romance and marriage to Bonita (the wonderful Deborah Mailman). The all-star cast features Colin Friels as Justice Moynihan, Miranda Otto, Rob Carlton and Felix Williamson. Mabo is one of the must-watch TV events of this year.
