hope crusader

Never has it been more important to observe Earth Day. This year, the annual event, which takes place on April 22 and raises awareness for the environmental protection of our planet, celebrates its 50th anniversary. National Geographic [613] honours the milestone with the premiere of Dr Jane Goodall’s incredibly touching, uplifting special Jane Goodall: The Hope at 6.30pm. The international treasure, who turns 86 this month, has spent six decades dedicating her time to promoting environmentalism, animal welfare and conservation through innovative, pioneering approaches. This two-hour documentary follows the English crusader’s work establishing the Jane Goodall Institute’s youth-empowerment organisation Roots & Shoots and African community-centred conservation program TACARE, not to mention her continued advocacy for both chimpanzees and humanity. “We’re going through very dark times: socially, politically and especially environmentally,” she says.…

no second chances

BACK IN JUNE! Will Jackson may be sitting pretty at the governor’s desk now – as our exclusive first-look image shows – but for just how long is anyone’s guess. Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out, with Wentworth returning to FOX SHOWCASE [115] in June. With last season’s siege still very much front of mind when season eight begins, Will’s (Robbie Magasiva) head will be on the proverbial chopping block. Also weighing heavily on the sensitive soul is his misplaced trust in Marie Winter (Susie Porter). Having fallen hard for the prisoner, he was reluctant to believe she could have been responsible for the break-out attempt and ensuing bloodshed, despite all the evidence. “Will put a lot of trust in her,” Magasiva tells Foxtel magazine. “She was the…

leader of men

“The Dragons are such a great club with a rich history. Some amazing players have captained here so to have my name alongside them is a tremendous honour and privilege. I got to taste the captaincy last year when Gareth Widdop got injured. He was a good mentor and taught me you can’t demand anything from anyone if you aren’t doing it yourself. I just want to be consistent and compete as hard as I can every week. When something needs to be said, by all means I’ll say it, but I try not to talk too much because you don’t want that one voice always barking at everyone. We have many experienced players, including James Graham and Tyson Frizell. Everyone in our leadership group has played Origin or for their country;…
