5 YEARS AGO:
A GOOD Samaritan who was beaten and kicked after attempting to intervene in a domestic dispute in the Darwin CBD was an off-duty police officer. The officer was walking home when he intervened in a disturbance. He was then surrounded by four men and king-hit.
1 YEAR AGO:
ICONIC band Yothu Yindi is set to make a remarkable comeback later this month, continuing their legacy following the passing of two original members. It has been 25 years since Yothu Yindi’s massive hit Treaty was released and five years since they appeared onstage.
