    Double Trouble is a light-hearted comedy drama about twins who were separated at birth, yet one day find themselves face to face. The story is about how the twins' chance meeting changes many people's lives.

    Kyanna lives in a central Australian desert community with her Indigenous mother and extended family. Yuma has been brought up in the city with her well-off white father, stepmother and stepbrother. When the twins accidentally meet in Alice Springs, they not only find they have another half – they find they have another parent they didn't know about. And that's when the fun really starts ...

    On impulse, the twins decide to swap places for a night. But things go wrong. Yuma finds herself marooned in an Aboriginal community, surrounded by strangers with none of the luxuries to which she is accustomed. Kyanna is taken to the city, a frightening and alienating place, with none of the family and social support she's used to.

    While with their 'new' families, the twins have all kinds of adventures. Yuma learns about her mother's life – going bush, eating bush tucker, doing dot painting, playing football and swimming in the waterhole. She also comes into strife when she seeks some privacy to practice dance moves – getting lost in the wide open spaces of the desert landscape and encountering wildlife close up.

    Double Trouble includes a DVD of the thirteen-episode TV series and a DVD-ROM teaching resource.

    The DVD-ROM Double Trouble: Learning and Teaching Resource is a contemporary resource that offers teachers and students interactive and engaging education content to explore Indigenous perspectives through a multi-discipline approach. The resource speaks directly to students where they can watch the selected video clips and apply their understanding by completing the relevant interactive student activity sheets. The teaching activities reference an inquiry approach where students explore and respond to different tasks and project ideas.

    The resource contains:

    • twenty-nine video clips selected for relevance to themes and activities in teaching resources;
    • sixty-three subject-based learning resources and interactive activities presented as case study investigations;
    • Production information, including interviews with key production personnel and stills of locations and characters.

    This resource would be most suitable for use in Years 5–9 in the curriculum areas of Arts (Dance, Drama, Media) and English.
