Secrets of the Jury Room by Aviva Ziegler( Visual )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enter the normally closed world of the jury room to discover how juries really work. In Secrets of the jury room, two juries decide the fate of the accused in a murder case. The case is fictional, but highly realistic. On trial is a young gay Lebanese man who is accused of killing his terminally ill lover. A retired Supreme Court judge presides over real barristers, expert witnesses and court personnel. However, unlike real-life courts, we are able to observe the jurors reaching their decisions. Two juries, each of twelve people of various ages and backgrounds, take part in this unique experiment. As we watch them grapple with both the evidence and the moral issues, we see how personalities and prejudices can affect the process of the law. The result is a thought-provoking insight into the inner working of the jury system
What is a Jew to You?( Visual )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aviva Ziegler has worked in Award-winning Current Affairs television in Australia for over 20 years, observing and documenting the lives of others. In this film, Aviva turns the camera on herself to explore the essence of her own Jewishness. Being Jewish for Aviva is something of a conundrum: If you have no formal involvement in Judaism and its practices, and you don’t even believe in God, then what is it that makes you answer “yes” when asked if you are Jewish? To pinpoint her Jewish connections, Aviva traces her own family’s religious and cultural diversions from their origins as a tightly knit Viennese family to one whose members are scattered across the globe. What is a Jew to You? is not an anguished search for identity but rather, a wry and lighthearted look at some of the confusions and paradoxes that are for Aviva part of being Jewish today
Plumpton high babies( Visual )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They're schoolgirls - dreaming of the future, wanting to go out and have fun, trying to work out relationships with families, friends and boyfriends - and attempting to finish high school while raising their babies. Plumpton High, in Sydney's outer western suburbs, is one of the few schools in Australia with a program that supports schoolgirl mothers completing their education, integrating them into the general student population. Over 100 girls have been helped by the program since it began. This year, 13 are enrolled. Plumpton High Babies follows a year in the lives of some of these young mothers as they hurtle from girlhood to womanhood. Baby, at 15, is the youngest - just a child herself. Simone, considered one of the school's star students, is 16 and three months pregnant. Crystal is finding it tough with a toddler and nowhere to live. Jasmine, with her eight-month-old son, has been in the program longer than any other girl; now her twin sister is pregnant. And expelled student Jessica is being accepted back for one reason only - she too is 15 and expecting. So what does it take to help a teenager with a baby stay at school? At Plumpton, the dedicated and passionate principal and program co-ordinator offer understanding, a supportive environment, flexible hours and practical health and welfare assistance as well as constant encouragement. But the outcome depends on the girls. A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with 220 Productions. Produced with the assistance of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Executive Producer: Mark Hamlyn. Producer: Julian Russell.

Restorative justice is gaining attention as a method of healing and reconciliation.

Capturing on film the emotionally charged confrontation between a murderer and his victim's family, "Facing the Demons" takes us through the entire process to bring about such communication
