Mark's mother, among other guests, appeared on the show to discuss the issues that are of concern to the Indigenous community. Mary G is based partially on Mark's mother, one of the stolen generation, and she draws her sense of humour from her. Mark is an accomplished film maker and he is just scratching the surface in creating new and greater products.
