120 hours of tape compiled by Barker (born 1900) have been archived at the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). They represent an unparalleled record of Aboriginal life in northwestern NSW. In 1977, five years after his death, Janet Mathews brought out a book titled The Two Worlds of Jimmie Barker which was based on the autobiographical recordings. It was critically acclaimed and is widely recognised as one of the most important testimonies of Aboriginal life in post-contact NSW. In 1999 historian and radio producer Martin Thomas began researching the Barker archive and secured permission to make a radio documentary based on the recordings.
