All in the Mind (ABC): The Indigenous Memory Code

http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/allinthemind/indigenous-memory-code/7553976

A look at how Australian aborigines, in particular, use songlines, rituals, and a version of memory palaces to retain enormous amounts of cultural and natural information within an oral culture. Very interesting on a number of levels: anthropological, historical, neurological, more.
