Persons Of Interest Award & DVD release

 We're pleased to announce that PERSONS OF INTEREST has just been selected as a finalist in the 2014 NSW Premier's History Awards.  This is a great acknowledgement of the rigor of our research and the quality of it's presentation.  The Award will be presented by the Premier at a glittering ceremony on September 5th.  The judges' citation says:

"Persons Of Interest uses the historical records of ASIO to good effect - showing how the agency's films, photographs and written files can offer new insights and information for historians seeking to understand Australia's response to the Cold War and rapid social change in the 1960s and 70s.  This is combined with interviews with participants, experts and former personnel.  The result is powerful and compelling viewing."

This nomination coincides with the release of the series as a four disc DVD set.  The discs include all four episodes and nearly two hours of DVD extras including previously unseen ASIO surveillance films, out takes and interviews.  With nearly five hours of programme material this is a value packed set of discs which reveals an unnerving insight into Australia's secret history.  With great reviews. Awards as the documentary of the year and unparalleled public interest in the national screening of the series early this year PERSONS OF INTEREST is a must for anyone with an interest in Australian history, espionage, the surveillance society or as a gift for a parent who was a dead set "threat to the state".
