The National Features and Documentary Series is a collection half-hour features and documentaries produced by members of Australia’s community radio sector. Since 2013, the National Features and Documentary Series has been a showcase for emerging producers and content makers.
The 2019 series will premiere on Lofty later this year. In the meantime, we will present a selection of features from previous years. The subject matter covered by the National Features and Documentary Series is as diverse as community radio itself; a handful of examples being autism, riot grrl feminism, urban development, ketamine as mental health treatment, regional refugee resettlement, genetically-modified organisms and Aboriginal community and culture.
“In listening to the works, what you’ll notice immediately is the variety of topics and the cultural and geographic diversity of producers … and after that, the depth and quality of each. In fact, it’s a great demonstration of what community radio makers can do with the right time and resources invested in features. Saddle up for a genuinely surprising, engaging and uncommonly broad cluster of features.” – Australian Audio Guide
