28 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw "Curtin" the other night on the ABC, and I loved it. It gave me a good look on why Australia is what it is nowadays. It is important to say that I am originally from Venezuela, and that I've lived in Australia for 6 years now. I work for the Australian Film Industry and it has become to my attention how little the government spends on it, and I tell you it is very disappointing. Especially when you hear that the Howard Government wants to make people like me, who want to become Australian Citizens, take a test. And on the other hand they do not promote the creation of programs like this, which not only entertain but also teach a little about Australia. I found this show to do both, it gave an inside look on the formation of the country where I have chosen to live my life and start a family. It is a know fact that Television, Films, Newspapers and the Internet are the grand communicators and for better or worse these are also educators. In my opinion it is a little hypocritical to make people that legitimate want to become Australians take a test, some of this people like me, freely chose to live here, and I repeat "chose" we were not born here, we were not brought over as kids, we chose to be here because we identified with this country, and whether we know who Donald Bradman was, or what a Billabong is? Should be irrelevant. The point is that we need to see more of these types of shows; I am really looking forward to seeing "Bastard Boys" about the waterfront war involving Patrick Stevedoring and the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA). And not only people from overseas should see this, Australians too should see this types of shows, we all should read about this on papers and the internet, discuss it with family and friends, create a dialogue to form our own opinion, teach each other. And to the person in charge we should say " NO TEST, MORE CONTENT".
