Raising the curtain : Not the Queen's English - SBS 1
Call Number: DVC DRA0022
Publication Date: 2012
Not The Queen's English - Featuring interviews with some of Australia's leading actors, this three-part series celebrates the history of live theatre in Australia. The Australian voice in our modern theatre is loud and clear, but it took 150 years to escape the vision and accents of the British Empire. This episode looks at the struggles to determine our identity through theatre, and how censorship and restrictions were overcome in the 60s and 70s.

The Australian Soul - Chris Hilton
Call Number: DVC MHI0603
The final of the series looking at changes in the social and cultural fabric of Australia since World War II looks at the Australian soul. Of all the great shifts since the War, perhaps religion has travelled farthest. In the 1940s and 1950s, Australians dutifully attended church and Sunday school and the church had a firm grip on the Australian soul. But from the late 60s, bad boys and girls were finding spiritual fulfilment elsewhere and the churches struggled to keep up. Nowadays only about 8 per cent of Australians go to church every Sunday and 18 per cent say they have no religion at all. In this episode we see an Irish Catholic family who experienced sectarianism first hand in the 1950s, a nun touched by romance during the flower power days of the 1960s, a priest radicalised by the Vietnam War in the 1970s, an Aboriginal woman trying to maintain the ties to traditional beliefs and two Protestant boys, both at the Billy Graham crusades in the 1950s, who embarked on entirely different future paths.

Well done, those men - Barry Heard
Call Number: 959.7043394 HEA
Publication Date: 2012
In an intensely personal account, Barry Heard explains how as a conscript he was was of the many young men sent off to Vietnam for a year, completely unprepared for the emotional and psychological impact of what they would do and what they would have done to them there. As a result, he spent the next thirty years having a 'slow-motion' breakdown. The story of his long journey 'home' from Vietnam is an inspiring story of a life reclaimed, and gives voice to a lost generation of Australian men.
