Once upon a time in Cabramatta( Visual )

Once upon a time in Cabramatta is the untold story of how the Vietnamese community overcame the odds and found their place in multicultural Australia. The story begins with the landmark decision of Prime Minister Fraser to open Australia's doors to thousands of refugees at the end of the Vietnam War. It is a moment in history that finally buries the infamous White Australia Policy and transforms a nation. The years that follow are as dramatic as they are turbulent; a people struggling to find their place in a foreign land. In this one tiny Sydney suburb, the 80s and 90s see the arrival of street gangs, a heroin epidemic and the first political assassination in Australia's history. The Vietnamese people are vilified and demonised. Cabramatta it seems represents all that is wrong with Asian immigration. What's more the community exist against a political backdrop that is fractured, the universal support for multiculturalism a distant memory. But as the century draws to a close there is a remarkable turnaround. The Vietnamese people finally find their voice, speaking up to claim their rightful, democratic place in their adopted home. Cabramatta is a community transformed. Australia, a continent changed forever

Seed hunter( Visual )

"Seed Hunter is a one-hour documentary, as part of the ABC's Future Makers series, about the hunt for seeds that may help save the world from its greatest ever crisis - a global food shortage brought about by human-induced climate change. As Australia and much of the world wrestles with hotter weather and a dwindling water supply, mass starvation on a global scale is on the cards if we can't find ways to improve crop resilience. Scientists are exploring many solutions to adapt our food supply, including going back to Mother Nature herself to locate the genes that can withstand our changing climate; genes that, thanks to a high-yielding monoculture, have almost disappeared. Australian scientist Dr Ken Street, aka the 'Seed Hunter', spends his life searching for the tiny seeds that could play a role in helping food producers around the world. This film follows Dr Ken, the 'Indiana Jones' of agriculture, on a journey from the drought-ravaged farms of Australia, to the heart of the Middle East, to the mountains of Tajikistan as he hunts for elusive wild chickpea that can survive temperatures of 40 degrees above and below zero"--ABC TV website

"Every year millions of refugees escape civil war and human rights violations in search of a new homeland. Roughly 13,000 are accepted into Australia. But what happens once they arrive? This intimate documentary, filmed with the cooperation of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the Australian government's resettlement agencies, looks at two refugee families hoping for a fresh start on safer shores. For the ethnic Karen family from Burma, so much is startling - suburbs that seem to be for cars not people, too many clothes to choose from, automatic teller machines, and chickens wrapped in plastic. But learning English in 510 hours of government paid lessons is proving the biggest challenge. Constance Okat and her extended family came to Australia after fleeing civil war in Sudan. For Constance, the task is trying to reunite all the members of her family that have been separated for over ten years. She is also trying to challenge the notion that refugees do not assimilate in Australian society"--Website
