Land matters ( visu )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In recent years, Aborigines have been granted ownership of certain Australian national parks. Some environmental groups now fear that moves to achieve "economic justice" for Aborigines will lead to overdevelopment of these national parks for economic usages, with detrimental consequences to the ecosystems they protect. There is a growing schism between Green and Aboriginal activist groups over this issue, driving a wedge between two groups who up to now have been allied in most respects. This program focusses on Kakadu National Park and the parks around Jervis Bay in New South Wales. Studio guests are: Peter Bridgewater, the head of the Biodiversity Group of Environment Australia and Director of the National Parks and Wildlife Service ; Aden Ridgeway, Executive Director of the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council ; and Jeff Angel, Director of the Total Environment Centre in Sydney

Costing the community ( visu )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Discusses the sense of belonging to a community and the breakdown of social values. Should people behave as individuals looking to maximise their personal advantage, or are they social beings with rights and responsibilities to fellow citizens? Government emphasis on economic competition and rationalism has created a social crisis, creating a sense of unconnectedness. Eva Cox argues that the social must be put back into political decisions, as excess market forces and competition has divided us, but is the government and society inclined to change?
