An exciting bookmark: Re-enchantment, coming soon to abc.net.au/re-enchantment (the link isn’t dead, it’s just not live yet). It’s an interactive documentary about the hidden world of fairytales by Sarah Gibson. If you haven’t heard about it before, you heard about it first here.

- The Family Law, Season 3 (Benjamin Law 2019) 18 January 2019I have one complaint about this show: SBS is streaming the whole season, which means it's very hard if not impossible to watch episode after episode.

- Since Ali Died (Omar Musa 2018) 16 January 2019Omar Musa seems less at home in the Stables Theatre than at Bankstown Poetry Slam, and this hour of song and poetry with an autobiographical feel doesn't really work as a play, but it's greattheatre anyhow. Directed by Anthea Williams. Photo by David Charles Collins, taken from Griffin website.
- The Team Series 2 (Andi Wecker 2018) 12 January 2019A new set of characters, a completely new ad hoc team, for this second season. Just as promising
- The Year Everything Changed (Phillipa McGuinness 2018) 12 January 2019If 1947 has a good claim to be 'the year now begins', then 2001 has an equally valid claim to be the year it changed.
- Cold War (Pawel Pawlikowski 2018) 11 January 2019A visually beautiful black and white film, a love story set against a background of Cold War Poland. Grim as you'd expect, but with lots of cool dancing and music.
