MAX TV to Premiere New Oils Documentary Nov 1

Australian music TV channel MAX are set to premiere a new Midnight Oil documentary on Thursday 1st November at 9.30pm (AEST).

This one hour documentary utilises a wealth of rare archival footage as well as the only interviews with each of the five band members granted in recent years and follows the rock legends chronologically through their long-lasting career. The result: the first ever inside story of Midnight Oil.

Through interviews with Peter Garrett, Rob Hirst, Martin Rotsey, Jim Moginie and Bones Hillman, MAX explores how the band’s music was more than just entertainment – it was about raising awareness of environmental, political and Aboriginal issues and inspiring people to take action and seek out change. Every album in the band’s impressive catalogue is highlighted with the band providing their insights on each body of work.

MAX The Artist’s Story: Midnight Oil
Australian Premiere Only On Foxtel (channel 805)
Thursday November 1 at 9.30pm EDT on MAX
