Helping people help themselves
Just over 50 years ago, in October 1962, movie-goers got their first glimpse of an urbane British spy with the code name 007. Since then, he has defied political correctness to evolve into one of the most famous characters in film. And now he’s back.
Chris Flynn talks fictional family sagas with Addition author Toni Jordan; former smoker Fiona Scott-Norman makes a strong case for plain packaging; Meg Mundell thrashes around in the clean-living straight edge of the punk scene; Rebecca Harkins-Cross finds out how director Cate Shortland’s new film about Nazi Germany resonates with Australia’s political scene; and, in ‘Roving Eye’, photographer Ilana Rose captures the strength and resilience of women in Ethiopia.
This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Peter from Sydney, and we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Stephen G in Brisbane, Robert S in Sydney, Jenny and Paul S in Melbourne and Les in Bendigo, Vic. And we have an extremely intimidating photo of our resident vendor/bodybuilder Michael F working out at the gym in Brisbane.
