White Light

image

Tuesday, 14 July at 8.30pm.

Following its run at film festivals in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane last year, and at a time when the world is at a critical juncture in its response to the Black Lives Matter movement, award-winning Australian artist and filmmaker George Gittoes’ critically acclaimed documentary White Light will air on ABC and iview on Tuesday, 14 July at 8.30pm.

White Light is an intimate portrait of the community of Englewood in Chicago’s segregated South Side, an area that has earned the nickname “Chi-Raq” from some residents who liken the area to the war zones in Iraq due to its extremely high gun violence and murder rates. White Light goes to the source of why these civilian deaths are happening, highlighting ways the community is working to bring peace, and end the cycle of revenge which is perpetuated with every new killing.

Gittoes, who has spent over 40 years documenting war zones around the world, travelled to the United States after speaking with a US soldier, Yanos Hagos, who told Gittoes his hometown in Chicago was far more dangerous than fighting in Iraq. Gittoes says, “ I found this to be horribly true. With rising gun violence in the USA, I decided to go to the place in South Side, Chicago that’s been dubbed Chi-Raq to show how little progress has been made since 1968 when first I travelled to the US after the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and began to understand the depth of racism in that country. "

Our intention is for White Light to be used as a tool by anti-gun violence groups to open discussions on how to bring peaceful and positive change. This is a film that must be seen by Australians too. The worldwide protest movement born in the wake of the murder of Minneapolis man George Floyd earlier this year has brought our own country’s history with Indigenous Australians into review.”

At the epicentre of the violence in Englewood is “May Block”, a neighbourhood that found itself in the spotlight of primetime news when a promising young model, Kaylyn Pryor, who had just won the Mario Tricoci Make Me a Model Competition, was shot and killed while visiting her grandparents. White Light follows the teenagers who belong to the May Block’s Black Stone Brothers led by Solja, who was paralysed and lost his leg after being shot in the local corner store. Respected elder, Steve “Smiley” Armour reveals to Gittoes that the Black Stone Brothers feel trapped in an endless cycle of violence with their rivals that they don’t know how to end. The Brothers express frustration that while the local police arrest and intimidate members of the community for minor offences or drug offences, investigations into murders in the area rarely lead to a conviction. Gittoes captures on camera a frightening and tense moment between the filmmakers and the Brothers when they are surrounded by police while filming a freestyle, street rap session.

At the heart of the documentary and central to the lives of the teens of Englewood is rap music. Every corner has its rap poets, whose lyrics are an outlet to express their frustrations with few opportunities to succeed in their segregated and underfunded communities. During their time in Chicago, Gittoes and his producing partner, wife and musician Hellen Rose, opened their apartment to the May Block community’s young rappers as a safe space for them to come to write, collaborate and record music. Together the filmmakers and teenagers created the soundtrack for White Light .

In 2015, Gittoes was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize, an honour also bestowed on the Black Lives Matter Global Network in 2017. White Light strongly supports the Black Lives Matter movement, highlighting a community that has been neglected and ignored for too long. Gittoes and Rose plan to return to Chicago in October to resume filming the Southside Community through the Presidential election period in November.

Episode 1

A jogger on her morning run discovers a severed hand on the beach. Perez and the team are shocked by the discovery. Even more so, when a holdall containing further body parts, including a head, is found at an inlet nearby. Cora’s initial forensic investigations reveal that the body parts all belong to the same victim. A young black man, possibly from Nigeria. But what was he doing on Shetland? She finds traces of Lye on the body. It appears that someone attempted to dissolve the body parts in Lye prior to dumping them at sea. Using CCTV, the team manage to trace the victim’s last movements in Lerwick. He’s spotted at the harbour beside a boat named Silver Darling, and also at a local fish processing plant managed by Gavin Laird. At the bus station where he was last seen, they discover his rucksack in the left luggage. And with it his name - Daniel. Perez releases the CCTV footage to the press in hope of finding out more about who Daniel is. Olivia Lennox’ arrival on Shetland helps shed some light on Daniel’s identity. Olivia is Daniel’s mother. Her son lived with his father in Nigeria. Having finally identified the victim fully, the team set about scrutinising Daniel’s e-mail and social media accounts. And then the investigation takes a sinister turn…

Shaun Micallef was on The Weekly tonight, chatting to Charlie Pickering about the new show On the Sauce amongst other things.

Final Rendezvous

image

Tuesday 11 August at 9.35pm

The story of a female double agent at the centre of Australia’s greatest spy mystery.

Kay Marshall had no ambition to become a spy, but in the early 1960s she found herself centre­ stage of one of the most important andintriguing Australian espionage cases of the Cold War.

For two years, Australia’s intelligence agency, ASIO, filmed covert meetings in Sydney between the British-born divorcee and Ivan Skripov, a high-ranking KGB officer. Unknown to Skripov, Marshall was a double agent working for ASIO, codenamed ‘Sylvia’.

Skripov taught Sylvia espionage tradecraft, including ‘secret writing’ and the retrieval of parcels from ‘dead letter drops’. A foreign passport she retrieved from beneath a grave at a Sydney cemetery convinced ASIO that the Soviet Union had foreign-born spies living in Australia - infiltrators known as ‘illegal residents.’

The case reached a climax in late December 1962 when Skripov dispatched Sylvia to Adelaide, South Australia, where she was to rendezvous with anunknown KGB operative. Sylvia was given a detailed description of the man. Once passwords were exchanged, she was to hand him a package containing a sophisticated, miniature message sender that could communicate with Moscow undetected.

ASIO feared that the device was destined for a Soviet spy ring that hadpenetrated the British atomic bomb and joint Anglo-Australian rocketry projects in South Australia.

By the time Sylvia arrived at the rendezvous point, ASIO had it staked out with surveillance officers, undercover Commonwealth Police and a photographic team. ASIO’s aim was to detain the mystery man, interrogate him and crack the spy ring.

But the KGB’s man failed to appear.

The collapse of the case haunted ASIO for the rest of the Cold War. Were there too many surveillance men on the ground? Was there a mole inside ASIO? And who was the mystery KGB operative?

Six decades on, investigative filmmaker Peter Butt accessed dozens of reels of ASIO’s surveillance footage taken during the Skripov case. The footage revealed a remarkable story from beginning to end of a brave female agent at the front line of the Cold War. But in one of the reels taken at Adelaide, Peter noticed something odd playing out within metres of the rendezvous point - something that ASIO had clearly failed to investigate.

Brimming with new insights, stunningly restored surveillance footage and Sylvia’s powerful testimony, Peter Butt’s documentary cracks open one of the great espionage mysteries of the Cold War, identifying the elusive KGB operative and a possible KGB murder within days of Sylvia’s Final Rendezvous.

The Great Acceleration

image

From Tuesday 18 August at 9.30pm

Presented by Dr Shalin Naik, The Great Acceleration is a remarkable new science series where the ABC delves into its extensive archive to bring audiences the story of one of the most dramatic chapters of human history.

The Great Acceleration is a term coined by scientists, in an effort to describe the most rapid period of change in human and planetary history. In the last fifty years humankind has achieved astounding heights of discovery and exploration while reaching a pace of consumption that threatens the very fabric of our existence.

Across six one-hour episodes, the series examines major advances in the fields of space exploration, computing, energy, resources, Earth science and our understanding of the evolution of life itself. With expert commentary from scientists at the top of their field, such as geneticist Craig Venter and Nobel Prize winner Barry Barish, we hear firsthand accounts about some of the biggest moments in science, like the discovery of dark energy and gravitational waves, the creation of a new synthetic species and innovative solutions that may save the future of human civilisation.

The first episode explores the ambitious space shuttle mission which began in the 70s and facilitated some of the most important and memorable discoveries and breakthroughs of our time. It also investigates an event that took place earlier this year, where scientists (including Elon Musk) and members of NASA met to discuss the future colonisation of Mars.

Don’t miss the premiere of The Great Acceleration, as it’s an unmissable account of our extraordinary changing world and how new innovations can guide us into a more sustainable future.

The Accident - Series 1

image

From Friday 4 September at 9:30pm

In a community in Wales that has been left behind, a large construction project offers hope for a better future. But that future disappears when a local politician’s rebellious daughter and her friends break into the site. An explosion causes the building to collapse, killing everyone but her.

In the aftermath of the tragedy, grief quickly turns to anger. Unwilling to accept that their children were to blame, the families cry for justice. And as the gears of justice slowly turn, challenging truths begin to emerge. When the spotlight shifts onto one of the town’s own sons, the community threatens to tear itself apart.

It falls to the Council Leader’s long-suffering wife, now caring for a daughter with a lifelong disability, to hold the community together. And as those in charge fail to deliver closure for the town, it is up to her to lead them on the march for justice, no matter what the cost.

Episode 1

Polly Bevan is a devoted mother and loyal wife to local politician and leader of Glyngolau Council, Iwan. Disaster strikes their town when a construction site collapses, killing a group of children. Only Polly’s daughter, Leona, survives. The town, including Polly’s close friends Angela, Greta and Debbie, mourn the deaths of loved ones. Polly directs her anger at the Kallbridge Development’s project’s leader, slick executive Harriet Paulsen. But as the dust settles Polly’s shocked to realise it might be Leona who gets the blame.
