Children's fantasy drama / SF series about a trio of children who become caught up in an adventure linked to local sacred Aboriginal cave paintings about the "Wandjina" - the people from the sky.
The children see some strange things: One striking scene shows a mysterious hooded figure hunting kangaroos with a rod that strikes them down silently at a distance. The local Aborigines know about these people - they are the Wandjina, the people from the sky who visited long ago, in the Dreamtime. What becomes apparent is that not only are they real, they have not all left.
A suspenseful series with a satisfying conclusion.
The same behind the scenes people were responsible for 1965's serial "The Stranger".

1. The Wandjina Aboriginal Elders in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.........they have ongoing encounters and a massive history pertaining to this phenomena.
Quality, not quantity, is the key to this subject.
I challenge you to dispute their claims.
Start with the Aboriginal Elders.....I've met, talked to and stayed with them many times to learn their stories, which they take EXTREMELY seriously. But it will require FIELD RESEARCH because your computer screen and google will pull up very little about them regarding this.
That means going to the Kimberleys in Western Australia, gaining their trust and then documenting their stories - no easy task if you rely on "online" information to draw your conclusions as is clearly the case with some individuals.

Wandjina! was an Australian children's science fantasy television series produced by ABC Television and first aired in 1966. The story was inspired by Dreamtime mythology of the spirit ancestors of the Kimberly region of north-West Australia and is about three teenagers who become caught up in an adventure linked to local sacred Aboriginal cave paintings of the Wandjina — the "people from the sky" who visited long ago, in the Dreamtime.
Wandjina! was the first integrated film and videotape drama production ever undertaken by the ABC in Sydney.
A team of scientists including Miss Smith, venture into the Australian outback to investigate strange incidents. Donald MacPherson, a Scots-born anthropologist, discovers aboriginal paintings found on cave walls depicting mythical alien beings — the 'Wandjina', an extraterrestrial race that visited the ancient aborigines. Disturbing events indicate that not only are the beings real, they have not all left. The daughter of the anthropologist, Ann MacPherson and Linda, an aboriginal girl, explore the Wandjina caves near "Booala" Station and stumble on to a cave full of skeletons. The teenagers see some strange things: in one scene a mysterious hooded figure hunts kangaroos with a rod that strikes them down silently at a distance. The Wandjina resemble hooded monks with what looks like life-support back packs (similar to those astronauts used on the moon). Their power base is in a lighthouse style tower at the top of farm land.
In one of the episodes an elongated skull, "the Wandjina skull" is unearthed from sand causing gale force winds.
do any of the Aussie members of the forum have any knowledge of how far back the idea it might be aliens that the Wandjina paintings depict goes?
