Australian Story : behind the scenes
Australian Story : behind the scenes
The multi-award-winning Australian Story is one of Australia's best-loved programs ... [This book] takes us behind the scenes of the show to revisit fifteen stories, some told from the perspective of the subjects of individual programs and some from the experienced journalists, producers and crew who work on the show. Featured are Wayne Bennett, Dr Peter Hollingworth, police whistleblower Simon Illingworth, meningococcal survivor Tom Nash, the family of Ivan Milat, pianist Aaron McMillan, police inspector Chris Ferguson, the Andersons (whose daughter, Rosemary was murdered), parents of missing boy Daniel Morcombe, East Timor's Australian first lady, Kirsty Sword Gismao and Vanessa Gorman, both subject and producer, whose baby Layla died eight hours after birth. Three subjects of Australian Story, Matt Laffan, Dr Michael Holt and Professor Robert Tindle also tell of their experiences on the other side of the camera and explain how being on Australian Story changed their lives.
