ACT 7.30 tonight

By johnboy - 6 July 2012 0

This in from our friends at the ABC:


1. MOSQUE: Today (Friday 6th) is the last day for public responses to the development application for a mosque in Gungahlin. Those opposed have been meeting behind closed doors. They don’t want the mosque but neither do they want to be revealed as racists.

2. URIARRA :Only 6 houses remained in Uriarra after the 2003 fires. It has now been rebuilt but in addition to replacing the original 23 houses, the land has been divided and sold for a further 70 houses. Adam Shirley explores how the old and the new are managing to blend.

3. UTOPIA : Local author, Ben Stubbs, has followed the trail of the Australians in search of Utopia in Paraguay.

4. COOMA COMMERCE: A small business in Cooma is developing a worldwide market – selling fashion items on the net.

5. WHITE AT THE LIBRARY: The Patrick White exhibition at the National Library closes this weekend. ABC Archives provided some interviews with the literary icon.

6. CLOSER: To celebrate NAIDOC week, the photography of Darren Clark and his images of Indigenous Northern Territory.
