First Weapons on ABC – At Tennant Creek, 500 kms north of Alice Springs, host Phil Breslin meets master carver and craftsman Joseph Williams to learn about the Wartilykirri, a non-returning boomerang, often referred to as the Number 7.

Phil sources the wood, witnesses the crafting and puts this weapon into action. He gets a crash course in throwing and manoeuvring this hefty weapon. Keen to unpack the science that makes this hunting boomerang unique, Phil and Joseph meet our experts who are ready and waiting to investigate the wonder of the Wartilykirri.

It’s been quite the journey, but they’re not done yet. Phil wants to see the Wartilykirri in full fight mode, and so in a battle royale – medieval combat fighters put down their swords and pick up the Wartilykirri.

First Weapons – Friday 11 August, 2023 at 7.30pm on ABC TV and ABC iview (season final)
