For all of our public service readers thinking about speaking out this week’s 7.30 ACT program should be on your viewing list:
Here’s what’s on the menu this week:
1 After the Whistle Blows – in the wake of the story about Canberra whistleblower, Debbie Scattergood, Kate Evans reports on the aftermath of whistleblowing. Is it worth it?
Andrew Wilkie ( former whistleblower) Debbie Scattergood, Peter Shergold ( former head of PM&C) and others talk about the notion of loyalty – and to whom it is owed.
2. Wolfgang Sievers – One of Australia’s great 20th Century photographers, Sievers was famous for his macho images of gears, machines, factories and mining operations.
Beautiful as art in their own right, they’re also a valuable record of post-war Australian industry – a new book by Helen Ennis and published by the National Library looks at his life and work.
3. Tongue Farewell –Tim Gavel reports on a true gentleman of the game – playing his last ever match this weekend.
4. Closer – there are 2 possibilities – Craig Allen filmed the gang gangs feeding at his neighbour’s breakfast table – and there is a beautiful exhibition of children’s paintings at ANCA – one this week – and one next – it depends on how much time we have left at the end of the show.
