  • The bra boys A film about the cultural evolution of the inner-Sydney beachside suburb of Maroubra and the social struggle of its youth, the tattooed and much maligned surf tribe known as the Bra Boys. Check Availability
  • Angels and demons Andrew Denton immerses himself in the world of mental illness, a world that’s often invisible because in our fear, we choose to look away. He meets people who wrestle with angels and demons, visions and voices, people with remarkable tales of resilience and recovery. Check Availability
  • Rampant: how a city stopped a plague The story of AIDS in Australia, and how our response to the disease – so radically different to that in the USA and other countries with conservative governments – made us world leaders in controlling the virus, which had the potential to become a plague. Check Availability
  • Lockie Leonard (The complete first series) Set in a small Austrailan country town, these episodes tell of Lockie Leonard who is twelve and three quarters years old. He has to deal with a Dad who is a cop, a Mum who is frighteningly understanding and a younger brother who wets the bed. Lockie’s adventures and escapades are full of humour and a distinctively Australian character. Check Availability
  • The Young Ones (Complete series one & two) There was Mike, the suave, sensible one; Vyvyan, the psychotic punk-metal mohican; Neil, the lentil loving hippy and Rik, the right-on anarchist revolutionary and Cliff Richard fan: four students – desperate for money, excitement, girls or just something to fill the day – sharing a house.

  • Afghan chronicles A look at the Afghani press group Killid Media, one of the strongest independent voices in post-Taliban Afghanistan. Through its two weekly magazines (Killid and Mursal) and a radio station, Killid Media pushes for social change, modernization, and an end to political corruption. Check Availability

  1. Oh goodness, I used to LOVE the Young Ones. They’d come on late Sunday night on the East coast. This show represents one of my earliest exposures to british comedy.
