Choir of Hard Knocks : the voice of Reclink : Opera House special /

by Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Australian Broadcasting Corporation 2008Description: 1 videodisc (DVD) (ca 113 min.) : sd., col. ; 12 cm.Notes: Music Publisher number : R-108355-9 Consultant executive producer and original idea by Jason Stephens Series director Bruce PermezelSummary: "Twelve months ago Jonathon Welch brought together a group of Melbourne's disadvantaged to form a choir, but had no idea what a sensation the choir would become. Now the 42 members of the Choir of Hard Knocks have been invited to perform in the Opera House concert hall. Taking such a disparate group on the road is a risky venture, and the stakes are high. It's a real show of faith in the Choir, and nerve racking for the organisers. It's a massive logistical operation given the varied emotional and physical needs of the choristers. For most, it will be their first time on a plane or their first trip interstate. Following on from ABC TV's inspirational series, this hour-long special shows the Choir of Hard Knocks as they prepare to travel to Sydney to sing on one of the world's great stages."--ABC website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Race against time : how Australians spend their time /

by Australian Mutual Provident Society.

Publisher: Sydney AMP 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Balancing work and family remains a big issue for Australian men and women, with around 40% of women and 30% of men feeling often or always rushed or pressed for time, according to the latest AMP.NATSEM Income and Wealth Report. But when it comes to how men and women spend their day, the report finds that there are some big differences, with traditional gender roles still evident. Contributing to time pressures, Australian full-time weekly work hours have increased by almost three hours for men and two hours for women since 1985. That is, average weekly full-time hours have risen from 39.5 to 42.3 hours for men and 36.4 hours to 38.6 hours for women. Australian women are spending on average two hours more each day than men on housework, child care and purchasing goods and services. Men spend almost the equivalent extra time on employment-related activities as well as an extra half hour per day on recreational and leisure pursuits.Availability: (1)
