War On Waste


WAR ON WASTE

“War on Waste” is a primetime ABC TV documentary that tackles the topic of Waste in Australia.

 

In the 1960’s, Australians were considered amongst the best in the world when it came to the ways they dealt with waste. Many recycling programs – especially those involving paper and newspaper – were pioneered in Australia and expanded into other areas in the years thereafter. And in the late-60’s and 1970’s, the launch of the ‘Keep Australia Beautiful’ campaign put the issue of waste at the forefront of the national consciousness.

 

All of this changed dramatically in the last 20 years. As our population grew by 28 %, the amount of waste we produce skyrocketed by 170 % and now Australia is amongst the top waste producing nations on this planet.

 

In this new four-part documentary series, presenter Craig Reucassel is on a mission to find out how we’ve become a nation of wasters.

 

Through a series of interviews, and stunts will take a critical and first-hand look at every aspect of the issue of household, retail and farming waste in Australia – and ask, what has changed in the Australian psyche, and in our consumer culture, that has led us to become among the most wasteful nations on Earth?

 

We’ll ask why Australians are generating millions of tonnes more waste every year – in food, fashion, packaging and more.

 

We’ll discover the truth about where various kinds of waste actually end up, and more importantly find out how we clean up the mess we’ve created?

 

It’s time to start a War on Waste!

Struggle Street


 

STRUGGLE STREET

Poverty and social disadvantage are things we usually associate with the Third World. But in areas of western Sydney - on the margins of Australia’s most affluent city - thousands of families and individuals are struggling to get by. In this 3-part observational-documentary series filmed over a six- month period in Sydney’s Mt Druitt area, we’ll go beyond the tabloid headlines and into the lives of a cross-section of residents living in some of our most disadvantaged communities. Through their stories and voices we shed a light on a range of complex issues – from housing and employment, to problems of addiction and family breakdown - and witness the triumphs and joys that still emerge despite sometimes overwhelming odds.

River Cottage Australia


RIVER COTTAGE AUSTRALIA

In it's fourth series, the River Cottage Australia farm is a hype of new activity.

Paul has welcomed eager cooks and wannabe farmers to the property to share his knowledge and teach people how to live the River Cottage lifestyle through cooking and growing their own produce. 

He also became a first time Dad, so to help run the farm and the school he's taken on a farm apprentice. 

This season he’s looking at ways to future proof the farm and the theme of food security will be intertwined across the series.

With that in mind, he’s taking the River Cottage Australia message on the road to discover new regions, meet and learn from farmers and producers who share his passion in improving food security by boosting long-term agricultural productivity.

Paul will use the knowledge he’s gained as a chef and with the help of mates, create a mobile Food Van. He’ll tow the van across the Snowy Mountains and into Canberra and down to the Riverina Region of NSW.

Along the way, he’ll visit farms, producers, markets and cook for his new friends with the produce his caught and gathered along the way, all the time learning new skills to bring back to his own farm in Central Tilba.
