    Background: We begin newsreel tonight with film on music in Sydney today - starting with an item that might be described as traditional Australian.The interested audience comprised members of the band of the Royal Ulster Rifles.

    The retical was given by two aborigines from Arnhem Land Garmali on the didgeridoo and Darqual on the music sticks.

    The Irish Bandsmen have ordered two didgeridoos to take back to Britain.Although the ancient Australian musical instruments won't be used in band parades, the Irishmen expect they'll be a big hit on mess nights.

    After the recital Garmali gave some private tuition to Corporal Bert Willis.He found that the Didgeridoo was not as simple as the bugle.

    The aborigines, all members of the Aborigines Theatre now performing in Sydney, were then treated to a recital of music as the Ulsters make it.
