"The story of the battle that will decide who owns your body and the biological building blocks that make you the person that you are. Right now across the globe there is a major legal and scientific battle raging over one simple question: should we allow individuals and corporations to patent genes? Some biotech companies say yes, claiming patents reward medical research and promote the investigation of life saving treatments. Others see it very differently, describing patenting as a biotech land-grab that's less about patients and more about greed." -- Container

The film begins with the inaugural 'Kickstart Camp' in Melbourne in 2005. The cream of young Indigenous players from around Australia are brought together for a week-long talent camp where they get a sometimes brutal taste of what it takes to become an AFL star. Among the boys is Daniel Jago, a good-natured 15 year old from Smithton in the remote north west of Tasmania. It is his first trip to Melbourne and the first time he's been on a plane. Daen Lomas, from Sydney's West, also demands attention. Of all the boys at the camp his cheeky confidence and mischievous grin stand out. He has the skills and the ambition, but against him is a difficult family life with an absent father battling heroin addiction. The dark horse is Perth boy Chris Yarran. He is so shy he barely says a word, even to other boys at camp. His father is serving a lengthy prison sentence and perhaps it is this, or some other sense of insecurity, that keeps him hiding under the peak of his cap. But when he plays footy, he comes alive. -- Case-slip

Mabo by ABC( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
This telemovie tells the story of Eddie 'Koiki' Mabo, the Torres Strait Islander, who left school at 15, yet spearheaded the High Court challenge that overthrew the fiction of terra nullius. It traces Koiki's life, through his early exile from his beloved Murray Island, his years of working on the trochus trawlers and the outback railways, to his decision to embrace activism. It also tells of his struggles to begin a school specifically for Aboriginal and Islander children. Considered a 'troublemaker' by the white authorities, when Koiki tries to return to Murray Island to visit his dying father, the Murray Island Council - four times - denies him entry. His mistake, it seems, is choosing to be a black activist under the racist, repressive 'police state' of Bjelke Petersen's Queensland. When he learns that land on Murray he believes he owns, is legally gazetted as Crown Land, Koiki resolves to fight. This propels him into a ten year, life or death struggle against three mighty foes: the Queensland and Commonwealth governments, and the opposition, fear and conservatism of the authorities on Murray Island itself. Koiki, his fellow plaintiffs, their supporters and their legal team have few financial resources, up against the all-powerful Queensland government which uses every tactic in its arsenal. Year after year the struggle goes on, Koiki feeding his family on yams from the garden and fish from the river, giving his money, his strength, his health and, ultimately, his life to this titanic battle. We learn as well of the tender love story of Koiki and Bonita, the woman he met as a teenager, and loved through thirty years as they raised ten children. And of the deep love and partnership that fuelled their unflagging fight to change the face of Australia forever

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"For the residents and councils of many rural Australian communities, maintaining a reliable health care service is a constant challenge. Despite extensive domestic and international recruitment campaigns, doctors are leaving some rural communities faster than they can be replaced. Earlier this year the Federal Health Minister said the rural health system in Australia was 'a dire state of affairs', and promised a complete overhaul of workforce incentives and programs. But when the Government announced its budget allocation a few weeks later, it was met with a disappointed response from both the Australian Medical Association and the Rural Doctors Association of Australia. Desperately Seeking Doctors is a three part documentary series which reveals the personal stories behind the doctors' crisis in Australia. How do rural communities cope with Australia's doctor shortage? Who are the doctors working in these roles, and what are their views on rural health services? How prepared are medical students to take positions in the bush, and how do the residents of rural communities feel about the future of their health care? Over three episodes, Desperately Seeking Doctors follows the bush experience of Scottish GP Dr Mary Fortune, who answered an international call-out for Australian doctors, Indian born Dr Alan Majid, and two medical students Jen Martins and Nabilah Islam, who also happen to be close friends"--Enhance TV website

Millionaires' mission ( visu )
in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Contains the first two episodes of this series. Eight successful British business leaders have been challenged by leading development agency World Vision to improve the living standards of a remote Ugandan farming community. With a combined fortune of more than $1.3 billion (600 million pounds) and expertise ranging from construction to marketing, they will need to use their business skills to tackle the seemingly intractable issue of poverty. To help launch their ideas, the entrepreneurs have each donated $32,500 (15,000 pounds) to a joint fund. They are exchanging five-star lifestyles for three weeks living in a makeshift camp without running water or electricity. But can eight bosses who are used to getting their own way work together to help people in the village? In a region so poor, the average daily wage is just $1.10 and the entrepreneurs need to be ruled by their heads, not just their hearts, if they are to succeed. Episode one sees the entrepreneurs embark on a two-day journey to the remote Ugandan community where they will be working and confronted with the realities of life in an African village. The usually hardheaded business brains are soon overwhelmed by requests from people in desperate need. Tension surfaces in the group and construction boss Steven Morgan decides to go it alone with a project to provide clean water for school children, while media expert Seb Bishop has a brainwave that could be a real money-spinner for the community. In Episode two work gets under way on an innovative hotel that could prove to be a real money-spinner for the villagers. But another big idea nearly ends in disaster when a misunderstanding leads to a confrontation with local farmers. Work grinds to a halt and the entrepreneurs find themselves in very hot water
