Dark victory by David Marr( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allies( Visual )

Allies is a landmark documentary from 1983, made at the time of Bob Hawke's unequivocal embrace of the American alliance. The film explores Australia-US relations during the Cold War: the setting up of ASIO to appease American agencies worried about Communist influence; the Petrov Affair and disunity in the Labor Party; and the determination of Sir Robert Menzies to follow the US into Vietnam. It's the story also of the "covert wars" in South-East Asia, especially Indonesia, and Australia's role in support of US policy and intervention. Allies looks at the time when Australia went "all the way with LBJ", and the days when secret US bases were established. It then looks at the heady days of the Whitlam election and the promise to restore "integrity" and "dignity" to Australia's foreign policy, and explores how Nixon, Kissinger and the CIA really reacted to Whitlam's government. Interviews with former CIA officials Frank Snepp, Victor Marchetti and Dr Ray Cline show how deeply disturbed the US intelligence agencies were by the new Labor government. Convicted spy Christopher Boyce, former CIA director William Colby, Prime Minister John Gorton, Clyde Cameron, David Combe, Alan Renouf and US ambassadors to Australia, Marshall Green and Ed Clark, also have much to say. The film stands today as a document of rare authenticity. Made without a narrator, and with discreet use of archival images, the film is told entirely by people who participated at first-hand in the events and by contemporary academic observers (among them Des Ball). All credit to Wilkinson this early in her distinguished career as a journalist and political commentator for not only securing such an extraordinary range of interviewees, and not only coaxing them into such frank and revealing reflections, but also for pulling all of these elements together into such a coherent and forceful whole. "President Lyndon B. Johnson always thought that Australia was the next large rectangular state beyond El Paso, and treated it accordingly"--Marshall Green, US Ambassador to Australia, 1973-75

In 1987, four refugee families told, in painful and gruesome detail, their stories about life under Pol Pot. 25 years on they tell us how they have dealt with the painful memories and what it has been like to rebuild their lives in a foreign land.

The tipping point by Laurence Jourdan( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arctic Ice Sea, a plate of ice roughly the size of Europe, is disappearing. This film takes us on an ice breaker, in the company of scientists, through the fabled Northwest Passage. With our own eyes we see how polar bears, seals and arctic birds are struggling to adapt to the rising temperature and their shrinking terrain. But beyond our concern for the wildlife, there are very worrisome concerns about the effect on human life of the melting ice cap

The fixer : the untold story of Graham Richardson by Marian Wilkinson( Recording )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Graham Richardson was, for almost twenty years, one of the most powerful figures in the Australian Labor Party. His rise to power was marked by explosions of violence and bitterness, won him rare political influence and at times brought his career to the brink of disaster. If there was a deal to be made, he was The Fixer
Chinese whispers( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 29th March this year mining company executive Stern Hu was sentenced to ten years jail in China for accepting bribes and stealing commercial secrets. Stern Hu has not spoken to the media. The hearings that led to his conviction were closed, and the precise nature of the evidence used to convict him has still not been made clear. Four Corners reporter Marian Wilkinson reveals new details of the events surrounding his arrest, and looks at the fall-out generated by the Hu case. His former employer, Rio Tinto, is just one organisation that's learned there can be a high price to pay for doing business in China. Although executives and government leaders are reluctant to discuss the problems they've encountered, Four Corners shows how the Stern Hu case and other recent events have fundamentally changed the way both companies and governments do business with our powerful North-Asian trading neighbour"--ABC website
Koala crunch time( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In key parts of Australia, koalas are dying in big numbers. In Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory the attrition rate has been so high the Federal Government responded by placing koalas on the Threatened Species "at risk" list. Why is this happening? The answer is simple. Development, cars, dogs, disease and climate change are making life tough for these fascinating creatures. The bigger question is, what can be done to save them? Four Corners travels to three koala hot spots to try to understand the problems they confront. First, reporter Marian Wilkinson looks at South Eastern Queensland, an area where development is exploding. Large tracts of bushland have been set aside for housing and other urban developments, which means koalas will lose their homes and food. In New South Wales koalas are also finding the going tough. West of the Great Dividing Range, conservation programs have tried to create places where the animals can live and be protected from predators, but rising temperatures are putting them at risk. In Victoria the situation is very different, but equally as troubling. In that State the koala population was revived with descendants from a small colony on French Island, south-east of Melbourne. Unfortunately, because this revived population came from a small group, there is a limited gene pool, which means major environmental changes leaves many of them at risk too. There is no doubt Australians want to save this much-loved national icon, but are we prepared to compromise development to protect the koalas' natural habitat?"--ABC-TV website

"Travelling to Pakistan, Four Corners talks to cricket insiders with an intimate knowledge of events leading up to the controversial tour to England. In particular, the report focuses on warnings given to Pakistan officials before the tour about the behaviour of certain players and their relationships with other people already under suspicion. Reporter Marian Wilkinson profiles the key figure at the centre of this latest cricket crisis, Mazher Majeed. Better known as a property developer and sports entrepreneur, it's now clear that Majeed met with The News of the World operative to negotiate match fixing payments several times. The program analyses a number of those meetings and the pattern of behaviour they describe."--ABC Four Corners website
One shitty deal( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A story that reveals how a toxic cocktail of investment packages helped poison the retirement funds of hundreds of Australians. The Federal Government was quick to boast that Australia avoided the worst of the global financial crisis, but many people here did pay a terrible price. Reporter Marian Wilkinson lifts the lid on the behaviour of investment bank Goldman Sachs in the United States. Speaking to a whistleblower who brought allegations against the company to the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the FBI, she also examines key internal company documents that show how the deal was sold in Australia."--Container
The super trawler( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some believed the "super-trawler" would revolutionise the fishing industry in Australia. Now it sits silent and empty, banned from plying its trade in Australian waters. What went wrong with the grand plan to catch and sell millions of dollars worth of fish internationally and why do the ship's owners feel they've been so badly treated by the Federal Labor Government? Four Corners reporter Marian Wilkinson tells the full story of the negotiations that led an international syndicate to bring the massive trawler, The Margiris, to Australia. She examines the chain of events that forced the Government to change the law and ignore the finding of its key advisory body, so it could address the anger of recreational fishers and environmental groups"--ABC-TV website

The enemy within by Beth Franks( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Talking to Labor Party insiders - including senior political figures, staffers and public servants - Wilkinson examines the allegations made against Obeid and another former Labor minister, Ian Macdonald. With forensic detail, Four Corners lays out the details and timeline of alleged corrupt behaviour, setting it against the political events of the same period. The story reveals a party and a government being destroyed from within. It also makes it plain, as one former insider explains, that with Eddie Obeid flexing his power, the process of governing the State could be subverted for the benefit of a few

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Carbon war( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"For nearly a decade Australian political leaders have been at war over the best way to tackle climate change. Former Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull was the first casualty. He lost his job because he supported a price on carbon. The former Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was next to go, after his polls collapsed when he dropped his plan to put a price on carbon. Now Prime Minister Julia Gillard faces an electoral revolt led by activists who say she doesn't have a mandate to introduce a carbon tax. And Opposition leader Tony Abbott is supporting this "people's revolt", hoping to force an early election."--Container
