Body corporate who owns your genes?( Visual )

"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

"Six ordinary Australians agree to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers by embarking on a confronting 25-day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world, with no idea what is in store for them along the way. Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, they board a leaky refugee boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in a Kenyan refugee camp and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq, protected by UN Peacekeepers and the US military. For some of them it's their first time abroad. For all of them, it's an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives." -- SBS website

Three Boys Dreaming( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. He has silky skills combined with a robust attack at the ball. His simple, understated ambition is to play AFL footy and "maybe get married and have a few kiddies". Daen Lomas, an Indigenous boy 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. It is these three boys whose stories and dreams we follow during key events over the next four years. It is the boys' emotional journey that is most captivating. One boy grapples with the death of his father and faces criminal charges for an assault. Another is beset with a more common affliction - lack of ambition and an unwillingness to do the hard work required to succeed. The third boy has a steely determination, makes it all the way into the AFL and is recruited by the famous Carlton Football Club. He kicks a goal in his very first senior game. -- Enhance TV

Once upon a time in Cabramatta is the untold story of how the Vietnamese community overcame the odds and found their place in multicultural Australia.

It is a moment in history that finally buries the infamous White Australia Policy and transforms a nation.

In this one tiny Sydney suburb, the 80s and 90s see the arrival of street gangs, a heroin epidemic and the first political assassination in Australia's history. The Vietnamese people are vilified and demonised. Cabramatta it seems represents all that is wrong with Asian immigration. What's more the community exist against a political backdrop that is fractured, the universal support for multiculturalism a distant memory. But as the century draws to a close there is a remarkable turnaround. The Vietnamese people finally find their voice, speaking up to claim their rightful, democratic place in their adopted home.

in English and held by 8 WorldCat member 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
