CBAA’s National Features and Documentary Series 2018

The fifth instalment of the CBAA‘s National Features and Documentary Series, an annual showcase of work by new and emerging Australian community radio producers, is now live and available.
With training and mentoring provided by the Community Media Training Organisation, eight producers based at community stations across the country turned their idea into a new half-hour feature for a national audience.
The eight new features tell engaging stories about issues affecting their communities from mining to farming, mediating street drug use, exercising with impaired vision, and migration across generations.

·         Healthy Soils, Healthy Communities – Barry Green (Donnybrook Community Radio)
