A Really Good Idea (Or: Many Hands Make Light Work)


An idea has been proposed to produce a pilot program for a weekly, one-hour, television program on the Royal Commission and related issues. The idea involves control of the format, production and financing, by victims and their friends and associates. It is called the Survivors’ Pilot Project.

Anyone wishing to participate in this project can go to the following website, which contains contact details for the principal proposer: http://www.gofundme.com/3cfgso

Topics which have been suggested include:

  • A segment that is focused on healing/understanding in your neighborhood or community.
  • Coming out. What to expect and how to work for a better outcome.
  • Dispelling myths & legends – what psychology, neuroscience and research can tell us.
  • Justice and the law
  • The psychology of the cover-up and just what is being covered up.
  • Statistics, surveys/polls.
  • Guests – local and from overseas (SKYPE).
  • Talking to management.
  • Guests from government and public services.
  • Bring a guest from overseas to Australia every 6 months – produce a weekly on their insights.
  • Internet Meme of the week.
  • The Commission – This Week’s Review.
  • Successes and Failures.
  • Social Media This Week.

Obviously, the proposer has already done much of the hard yards for this project, but it is clearly beyond the capacity of a lone individual to implement, especially if survivors are to retain complete control of the project. The proposer has a couple of other ideas well worth consideration which are also outlined on the website already given above.

While this author is unable to participate in a concentrated way on particular projects and programs, this site will always be available to those who have a message they want promoted to similarly-interested people.

That’s all I can say
