A to Z of Australia



Jeff Perks A to Z of Australia is so different from the image conveyed aboard by films and TV soap operas, so different from the way many Australians see themselves. Australians are natural democratic, naturally unpretentious, and instinctively fair-minded, but what about the treatment of the Aborigines, about poverty, about the workings of power? None of this alters one apparent fact – Perks loves the place. The show sets out to contrast the two sides of Australia, the good and the not-so-good.
