The Block

By Liz Jackson. Four Corners visits the most notorious block of houses in Australia and witnesses how what was once a dream for Aboriginal self-determination turned into a ghetto. The first land grant to Aborigines has become known to the locals as The Block. Reporter Liz Jackson found an intractable problem on the city fringe, which is meeting the irrepressible force of the Olympics deadline ... and the people are under pressure to move.
