The Bloody Track' in 1991 and 'Kokoda ... The Last Parade' in 1999 along with numerous stories for network television in Australia.

"Wow! What can I say!? Your presentation in Darwin was fantastic, it made everyone in the room so proud to be an Aussie. And as one that has lived overseas for nearly 20 years I must say that it was as moving a presentation as I have ever heard anywhere in the world."
