7.30 ACT – what to expect from tonight’s program

Canfan 29 August 2014

7.30 ACT on the ABC
Friday August 29th

  1. HEART ATTACK TERRITORY – Canberra fares badly in a recent report putting us ahead of the national average when it comes to heart disease. Certain southern regions of the ACT did especially poorly – although the reasons are perhaps a little more complicated and a little less alarming than the statistics.
  2. REFUGEE EMBASSY – a pop up Refugee Embassy appeared outside the office of the Department of Immigration. More than a stunt, it aims to provide a genuine service to asylum seekers.
  3. CHISWELL WITH A STRAIGHTFACE – Luke Chiswell – up and coming artist whose work features on shirts and shoes as well as gallery walls. His signature piece is called Straightface.
  4. BBC’s DIM VIEW OF CANBERRA – From the archives, BBC reporter James Cameron takes a very dim view of Canberra (early 70s).
  5. BRING HOME THE BACON – Canberra is home to boutique bespoke bacon makers – they’ve been winning prizes.
  6. CLOSER – Canberra by night.
