Tuesday things

3CR Tuesday Breakfast Show

  • played my interview with Maureen Tolfree about her brother, Brian Peters - one of the Balibo Five. Brian Peters was a Channel Nine cameraman who went to East Timor in 1975 to report on the Indonesian invasion with Nine reporter Malcolm Rennie. They were killed by Indonesian troops on October 16, 1975 in the town of Balibo along with the Channel Seven news team of Greg Shackleton, Tony Stewart and Gary Cunningham. A new film, Balibo, tells the story of what happened to them and to another Australian journalist, Roger East, who went to East Timor to investigate their deaths before the Indonesian invasion in December 1975. Balibo is screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival, and to national audiences from August 13.
  • Steph was joined in the studio by Martin Baldock from Equal Love, to talk about the campaign and the national day of action this Saturday August 1, with the rally beginning at 1pm at Federation Square.
  • played an interview by Bree McKilligan from 3CR's Jump Cut with Melbourne filmmaker Kerry Negara about her documentary A Loving Friend, which looks at the response of the Australian art world to artist Donald Friend's self-avowed sexual relations with young boys in Bali. A Loving Friend screens at the Melbourne International Film Festival on Sunday August 2 at 2pm at Greater Union.
