Yesterday the the Australian Broadcasting Corporation launched it's home
page so I decided to list for everyone the ABC site and a few other
sites I have found useful for media related research in Australia.
I have also listed a few addresses of Australian producers/distributors of
titles screened on television in Australia.
(I have also sent the same message to [log in to unmask], so
apologies for any cross duplication.)
