On tonight’s show:
Older homeless women – on the rise
We tend to think the homeless are people driven from their homes by family violence, drug abuse or mental health problems. But statistics tell another story. Between 2016 and 2021, in NSW, the number of homeless women aged between 65 and 74 rose a staggering 78 per cent.
Interviewee: Beverly Baker, Chair Older Women’s Network Reporter/Producer: Wendy Frew
Treasure Island –
Mention the Pacific Islands & images of pristine beaches and swaying palm trees come to mind. But for the Polynesian people in Sydney it’s much more than that. A new web series Treasure Island depicts rich Indigenous storylines from the cultural artefacts of Samoa, Fiji, Tonga, The Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea and Kiribati.
Interviewee: Lalau Leo Tanoi, Pacific Program Producer, Arts and Cultural Exchange Reporter/Producer: Annamarie Reyes
