No sex, no violence, no news by Susan Lambert( Visual )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique film examines the battle raging to control China's airwaves. Working with a government that allows nothing of social or political import to be broadcast, entrepreneurs from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia bring their full complement of consumerism and mindless entertainment to the millions or Chinese greedy for a glimpse of the outside world. Prof. Leonard Chu of Hong Kong Baptist University sees the arrival of television to the villages of China as a positive development, even with its limited programming. He applauds the new openness, providing a "window on the world." On the other hand, we hear from the director of Shanghai Communications whose only interest is in selling. He sees television solely as a tool for promoting Chinese products in their developing market. Gary Darcy, CEO of Murdoch's Star Network describes how BBC News was cancelled from the schedule because the Chinese government would never allow a newscast from abroad. Dr. Geremie Barme, a widely respected observer of Chinese society says, "Chinese television is a negation of the social contract which provided free educations, pensions, and social services to the people and peasants. Instead, the self sacrificing citizen of the past is being turned into a consumer."
Bush mechanics : the series by David Batty( Visual )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This off-beat series follows the exploits of the Bush mechanics, a group of engaging Aboriginal characters who travel through central Australia. In each episode, the Bush Mechanics who come from the remote Warlpiri community of Yuendumu are presented with a new set of challenges - catching a car thief, getting a nephew out of jail, racing to an outback rock concert and travelling thousands of miles to gather pearl shells for a rainmaking ceremony. As they travel through the desert in their clapped-out vehicles, they solve multiple car problems with wacky and inventive bush repair techniques. Featured characters include Jack Jakamarra, an Aboriginal elder who introduces the episodes with recollections of his first strange encounters with white people and their ways, and Jupurrula, the magic mechanic who appears out of nowhere to help the Bush mechanics when they get into real car trouble. A blend of documentary and drama, each of the four episodes illuminates a particular aspect of Warlpiri life from gathering bush tucker and living in a humpy to football and rock and roll. Combining adventure, magic realism and a distinctive brand of indigenous humour, the series provides a unique insight into both contemporary and traditional Aboriginal culture. A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with Warlpiri Media Association Inc.

Human contraptions by Bruce Petty( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academy Award winning animator Bruce Petty takes a satirical look at the contraptions that shape our lives. Education, sex, finance, globalism, art, media, medicine, law, government and even the brain are all transformed into evolving machines. Each five-minute episode begins with the basic concept at the nucleus of the machine. Then, combining high-energy, free-form illustrations with photographs, paintings and other snippets from the real world, Petty takes us on an anarchic journey through history as each apparatus builds to its complex contemporary form. We see how these contraptions are not immutable, but shaped by society, our changing ideas and our actions. We are encouraged to question and laugh at the haphazard and often faulty mechanisms that drive these machines that, in turn, run our lives. Narrated by Andrew Denton, this witty, provocative and entertaining series reveals these contraptions to be constructions of a very human kind - imperfect, sometimes unpredictable and always subject to change. A Film Australia National Interest Program. Produced with the assistance of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Executive Producer: Stefan Moore, Anna Grieve. Producer: Deborah Szapiro. Director: Bruce Petty. Writer: Bruce Petty. Narrator/Presenter: Andrew Denton. Principal Cast: Lee Perry (Character Voices), Sally Patience (Character Voices), Lucie Blinco (Character Voices)
