On National Sorry Day, this program looks back at the 1967 referendum, which resulted in the removal of two sections of the constitution which discriminated against Aborigines. In the referendum, over 90% of voters agreed that Aborigines be counted in the census and that the Commonwealth government take charge of Aboriginal affairs, effectively acknowledging Aboriginal people as citizens within their own country.
