  • In my shoes “Sick of being taken for granted, Australia’s vast army of carers is on the march, demanding reform as the Rudd Government prepares its maiden budget. Carers are demanding help: more funding in recognition of the ’bucketload’ they save governments – and a far bigger say in how it’s spent.” Check Availability
  • I am legend “Somehow immune to an unstoppable, incurable virus, military virologist Robert Neville is now the last human survivor in New York City and maybe the world. But he is not alone. Mutant plague victims lurk in the shadows… watching Neville’s every move… waiting for him to make a fatal mistake.” Check Availability
  • P.S. I love you “When tragedy takes her beloved husband, Holly Kennedy can’t imagine life without him. But Gerry had imagined a way to help Holly cope with his loss – a series of letters that she’ll receive to remind her of their past and help guide her to build a new future.” Check Availability
  • 3:10 to Yuma “Infamous outlaw Ben Wadeand his vicious gang of thieves and murderers have plagued the Southern Railroad. But when Wade is captured, a Civil War veteran, Dan Evans, a struggling rancher, is one of the volunteers to deliver him alive to the 3:10 to Yuma – a train that will take the killer to trial. Eventually Evans is left alone to escort Wade to the railhead as other volunteers quit or are killed.” Check Availability
  • I remember 1948 “This is the story of four Palestinian survivors of the creation of the state of Israel, who eventually made their way to Australia. They give eyewitness accounts of life in Palestine before 1948 and the whirlwind days of “Al Nakba” (the catastrophe), May 15th, and its aftermath. As children and young adults, these eyewitnesses were among 750,000 Palestinians fleeing for their lives, as Zionist terror gangs began seizing villages to enlarge the recently created State of Israel.” Check Availability
  • Jerusalem cuts “One war, ten days, three stories, all concentrating on the Old City of Jerusalem at the dawn of a new Middle East. For the Brits, it’s the shameful end of their 30 years Mandate. For the Jews, it’s the birthday of their State. And for the Palestinians, it’s a catastrophe. Now, 60 years later, images from three opposing points of view tell a whole new story.” Check Availability
