Joanne Lees: Murder in the Outback
Joanne Lees: Murder in the Outback is a television film produced by Channel Ten and ITV Productions, which first aired in Australia on Channel Ten on 18 March 2007 and in the UK on ITV on Sunday 8 April, where it was titled Murder In The Outback. It is based on the real life disappearance of Peter Falconio; the film begins in 2001, when backpackers Joanne Lees and Peter Falconio were travelling around the outback in Australia in a camper van. On the Stuart Highway, near Barrow Creek, in the Northern Territory, they were waved down by Bradley John Murdoch, convicted of assaulting Lees and murdering Falconio; the opening scene is Bondi Beach in Sydney. The backpackers embark upon their journey into the outback; when driving on the Stuart Highway late one night, they are flagged down by a bearded man driving a ute. Falconio disappears around the back of the Kombi with the man, tells Lees to rev the engine, she does so, a gunshot can be heard. Lees cries out for Falconio, but he does not answer back, he is not seen again after this point.
The bearded man appears at the front of the vehicle brandishing a gun, attempts to kidnap Lees, tying her up in the process. Managing to escape from capture, she hides in nearby bushes. After four hours of hiding she is rescued by a driver of a road train, who takes Lees to a hotel, where the police are called; the press from the UK and Australia began gaining interest in the case, throwing doubt onto Lees' story and focusing on intense rumours that she murdered Falconio. However, Bradley Murdoch is arrested and charged with Falconio's murder after Lees identifies him as the bearded man who kidnapped her. Lees faces Murdoch at a committal hearing, undergoes tough questioning about her version of events and her relationship with Falconio, she is questioned at length about Nick Riley, a man with whom she was having sex without Falconio's knowledge, to whom she continued sending e-mails after Falconio disappeared. However, it is decided that there is enough evidence to charge Murdoch and bring the case to trial.
Lees, unwilling at first, gives evidence. She demonstrates to the jury how she was able to manoeuvre her bound hands from behind her back to in front of her body, a key part of her account of her capture. Substantial DNA evidence against Murdoch is revealed; the jury give a unanimous decision. The judge calls him a "Cold blooded killer, who's shown no remorse." He is sentenced to 28 years in prison before being eligible for parole. The film ends with a scene of Lees sitting on the beach, text on the screen displays simply: "Peter Falconio's body is still missing". Joanne Froggatt as Joanne Lees John Wood as Grant Algie Bryan Brown as Rex Wild Tom Long as Tony Elliot Asher Keddie as Anne Barnett Richard Carter as Bradley John Murdoch Laurence Breuls as Peter Falconio Mel James as the Clerk of the Court Froggatt talked of how she had to perform scenes tied up with tape around her mouth as a gag, she said she got a feeling of "helplessness" while filming the scenes, although said the experience of filming the kidnap was incomparable to the kidnap itself.
Actual radio news reports by Australian reporter Tim Stackpool, broadcast in the UK during the real trial, are used extensively as part of the soundtrack to this film. Producers overview - official site Joanne Lees - Murder in the Outback on IMDb
Massachusetts the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It borders on the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, New York to the west; the state is named after the Massachusett tribe, which once inhabited the east side of the area, is one of the original thirteen states. The capital of Massachusetts is Boston, the most populous city in New England. Over 80% of Massachusetts's population lives in the Greater Boston metropolitan area, a region influential upon American history and industry. Dependent on agriculture and trade, Massachusetts was transformed into a manufacturing center during the Industrial Revolution. During the 20th century, Massachusetts's economy shifted from manufacturing to services. Modern Massachusetts is a global leader in biotechnology, higher education and maritime trade. Plymouth was the site of the second colony in New England after Popham Colony in 1607 in what is now Maine.
Plymouth was founded in 1620 by passengers of the Mayflower. In 1692, the town of Salem and surrounding areas experienced one of America's most infamous cases of mass hysteria, the Salem witch trials. In 1777, General Henry Knox founded the Springfield Armory, which during the Industrial Revolution catalyzed numerous important technological advances, including interchangeable parts. In 1786, Shays' Rebellion, a populist revolt led by disaffected American Revolutionary War veterans, influenced the United States Constitutional Convention. In the 18th century, the Protestant First Great Awakening, which swept the Atlantic World, originated from the pulpit of Northampton preacher Jonathan Edwards. In the late 18th century, Boston became known as the "Cradle of Liberty" for the agitation there that led to the American Revolution; the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts has played a powerful commercial and cultural role in the history of the United States. Before the American Civil War, Massachusetts was a center for the abolitionist and transcendentalist movements.
In the late 19th century, the sports of basketball and volleyball were invented in the western Massachusetts cities of Springfield and Holyoke, respectively. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first U. S. state to recognize same-sex marriage as a result of the decision in Goodridge v. Department of Public Health by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Many prominent American political dynasties have hailed from the state, including the Adams and Kennedy families. Harvard University in Cambridge is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, with the largest financial endowment of any university, Harvard Law School has educated a contemporaneous majority of Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Kendall Square in Cambridge has been called "the most innovative square mile on the planet", in reference to the high concentration of entrepreneurial start-ups and quality of innovation which have emerged in the vicinity of the square since 2010. Both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, have been ranked among the most regarded academic institutions in the world.
Massachusetts' public-school students place among the top tier in the world in academic performance, the state has been ranked as one of the top states in the United States for citizens to live in, as well as one of the most expensive. The Massachusetts Bay Colony was named after the indigenous population, the Massachusett derived from a Wôpanâak word muswach8sut, segmented as mus "big" + wach8 "mountain" + -s "diminutive" + -ut "locative", it has been translated as "near the great hill", "by the blue hills", "at the little big hill", or "at the range of hills", referring to the Blue Hills, or in particular the Great Blue Hill, located on the boundary of Milton and Canton. Alternatively, Massachusett has been represented as Moswetuset—from the name of the Moswetuset Hummock in Quincy, where Plymouth Colony commander Myles Standish, hired English military officer, Squanto, part of the now disappeared Patuxet band of the Wampanoag peoples, met Chief Chickatawbut in 1621; the official name of the state is the "Commonwealth of Massachusetts".
While this designation is part of the state's official name, it has no practical implications. Massachusetts has powers within the United States as other states, it may have been chosen by John Adams for the second draft of the Massachusetts Constitution because unlike the word "state", "commonwealth" at the time had the connotation of a republic, in contrast to the monarchy the former American colonies were fighting against. Massachusetts was inhabited by tribes of the Algonquian language family such as the Wampanoag, Nipmuc, Pocomtuc and Massachusett. While cultivation of crops like squash and corn supplemented their diets, these tribes were dependent on hunting and fishing for most of their food. Villages consisted of lodges called wigwams as well as longhouses, tribes were led by male or female elders known as sachems. In the early 1600s, after contact had been made with Europeans, large numbers of the indigenous peoples in the northeast of what is now the United States were killed by virgin soil epidemics such as smallpox, measles and leptospirosis.
Between 1617 and 1619, smallpox killed ap

Pete Cascaldi, from ABC.net, claimed, "Two Hands is a beautifully written and executed and sexy street-wise romp through inner city villainy. Sporting the perfect cast, it's the story of innocence and the'hardway' colliding with a mix of brutality and just a little mysticism" and praising the director, "Jordan delivers in Two Hands a tale that will more than tickle your fancy and touch your heart."

The Dish is a 2000 Australian film that tells a somewhat fictionalised story of the Parkes Observatory's role in relaying live television of man's first steps on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. It was the top grossing Australian film in Australia in 2000; the radio telescope at Parkes, New South Wales, was used by NASA throughout the Apollo program to receive signals in the Southern Hemisphere, along with the NASA Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station near Canberra. In the days before the July 1969 space mission that marked mankind's first steps on the Moon, NASA was working with a group of Australian technicians who had agreed to engineer a space-to-Earth interface to carry the video and telemetry signals from the Lunar Lander on the Moon and relay them to the rest of the global audience, estimated at some 600 million people; the actual dish antenna used had to be large as the signals expected from the spacecraft were weak and lost. NASA had to use the Parkes radio telescope situated in the middle of an Australian sheep farm.
There were some background concerns at NASA about using the Parkes antenna technical, as the signals had to go via point to point microwave links to get re-transmitted globally. Based on a true story, The Dish takes a sometimes comical look at the differing cultural attitudes between Australia and the U. S. while revisiting one of the greatest events in history. It depicts the activities in a control room of a radio telescope doing a job it was not expected to do; the film depicts some animosity between the Australian staff and the NASA representative, but they come together as a team when one of the locals fails to properly service a backup generator, putting their part in the mission at risk. They apply all their science skills to reacquire the signal and cover their mistake, so that everything works out in the end; the directors of the film portray, quite what is in essence, a complex technical task, such as re-pointing the dish when it loses the signal's "lock" and deciding to use it when the wind whips up threatening to damage the structure.
The film dramatises the team-work of a few technicians, who sometimes nearly lose their tempers with each other, painted against a backdrop of proud Australian townfolk, with visiting dignitaries hoping nothing will go wrong at the crucial moment. Although based on true events, the film uses fictional characters and alters historical details for dramatic effect. NASA's Honeysuckle Creek and Goldstone stations both had the signal first, but Parkes' signal was used soon after the beginning of the moonwalk. No power failure occurred, there was no friction with the NASA representatives, Prime Minister John Gorton visited Honeysuckle Creek, not Parkes, they did, operate in high winds gusting to 110 km/h at 60 degrees inclination, risking damage to the dish and injury to themselves to keep the antenna pointed at the Moon during the moonwalk. Sam Neill as Cliff Buxton Patrick Warburton as Al Burnett Tom Long as Glenn Latham Kevin Harrington as Ross "Mitch" Mitchell Roy Billing as Bob McIntyre Eliza Szonert as Janine Kellerman Tayler Kane as Rudi Kellerman Billy Mitchell as Cameron Roz Hammond as Miss Nolan Christopher-Robin Street as Damien Luke Keltie as Graeme Naomi Wright as Melanie Ben Wright-Smith as Nicholas Beverley Dunn as Secretary v/o Grant Thompson as Mr. Callen Bille Brown as Prime Minister John Gorton Lenka Kripac as Marie McIntyre Neil Pigot as the newspaper reporter Frank Bennett as Barry Steele Much of the film was shot on location.
The set reconstructing the 1969 control room was accurate, down to some details as small as ashtrays. Some of the "props" were in fact original NASA equipment used during the Apollo 11 landing, left behind in Australia as they were too heavy to ship back to the U. S. Staff from that era expressed amazement at seeing the set; the Dish was written by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Jane Kennedy and Rob Sitch and directed by Sitch. Apart from the radio telescope scenes, the majority of the movie was filmed in the small town of Forbes 33 km south of Parkes because of its old historic buildings, in Old Parliament House in Canberra, Crawford Studios in Melbourne; the Dish grossed $17,999,473 at the box office in Australia, was the top grossing Australian film in Australia in 2000. On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes the film holds a 96% fresh rating.
