Environmental evangelism goes wrong! For years we thought it was just us! Perplexed, bewildered and dazed by everything around about eco-sex appeal, eco-fashion, eco-razzi, eco-nomic and eco-vanity. The right, resource, recyle, re-use, retread – to Grogan Haplock destroyer of the world and manager of the largest landfill, it’s a recipe for redundancy.

See La Boheme as you've never seen it before when Opera Australia’s touring company take it on the road in outback Australia. We get to know key members of the opera company as individual characters, and see the impact they have on audiences in the towns they pass through.
The documentary conveys key moments in the story of the opera, revealing the drama in sequence from the first to last acts, and explores the parallels between the lives of the bohemian opera characters, the touring company and the country audiences. The final act brings the audience to tears with the beauty of Puccini’s music and the tragedy of the story.

Sister Carmel is no longer required to wear a habit, but since her return to the convent in the outback city of Whyalla, her new habit, is arguably just as profound. What is it that makes a woman give her life to religion and God? Is she really a Good Samaritan? A Nun’s New Habit provides valuable lessons in religious tolerance and compassion. It flies in the face of the fundamentalism and hatred that so dominates public discussion at this time and humanises the refugee and highlight tolerance in our society.
