Teal Tuesdays are back and we couldn’t be more excited! So who better to fill us in on the action in store for the final ever outing of Wentworth than its most feared inmate, Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson. Longtime friends and cover stars Pamela Rabe (Ferguson) and Marta Dusseldorp take a trip down memory lane as they reflect on their enduring friendship, which began on the set of Bruce Beresford’s 1997 film Paradise Road and came full circle with Dusseldorp joining the cast of the hit prison drama last year. Read all about it from page 16. British dance competition The Greatest Dancer also heats up screens this month but, in a twist, dance captains Cheryl, Matthew Morrison and Oti Mabuse relinquish all their power to the audience. Love it! And, from hard-hitting…

basketball star’s climate challenge

ADE’S CLIMATE PIONEERS Starts August 26, Thursdays at 7.20pm and watch On Demand BBC Earth [134] As a sportsman, presenter and vocal disability advocate, Ade Adepitan has never shied away from a challenge.

the missing piece of the puzzle

NATIONAL MISSING PERSONS WEEK Starts Sunday August 1 from 2.30pm to Saturday August 7 Crime + Investigation [135] Last year in Australia, more than 51,000 people were reported missing. Of those, more than 60 per cent were found within 48 hours and, over a longer period of time, 98 per cent were located. It’s the remaining two per cent of cases, however, that creates nightmares for the friends and family who don’t know what became of a loved one who disappeared. The annual National Missing Persons Week (NMPW) is being held from August 1 to 7, to raise awareness across Australia. Crime + Investigation supports this community initiative with a range of programs related to the issue, including the series When Missing Turns to Murder and Last Seen Alive, as well as episodes of Crimes That…

the march of time

How a person looks today might be, with time and age, dramatically different to how they looked the day they went missing. The theme of this year’s National Missing Persons Week is ‘Individuals, Not Statistics’, focusing on age progression images developed by the AFP’s Facial Identification Team. Seven long-term missing persons will be profiled, showing how they looked at the time of disappearing compared with what they would most likely look like now. “There are currently more than 2600 long-term missing persons in Australia and we hope an age-progression image may resonate with somebody,” says McEwan. “Despite the fact that some of these investigations have been going on for years, police never stop looking. We continue to try to find that piece of information that might make the case unfold.”…

THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER (1990) Appearing as Ryan alongside Sean Connery (pictured right) thrilled Alec Baldwin: “He was the first really huge star I ever worked with. He was very kind.” PATRIOT GAMES (1992) & CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER (1994) Harrison Ford was the second to step into Ryan’s shoes, noting: “I’d done too many suit-and-tie jobs and I reckoned I had to hit somebody in my next movie.” THE SUM OF ALL FEARS (2002) After Ford pulled out over script issues, it was Ben Affleck’s turn: “Alec and Harrison played this part… expertly. [I] didn’t really imagine that I could follow them.” JACK RYAN FRANCHISE Starts August 7, Saturdays at 8.30pm on Foxtel Movies Thriller [407] and watch On Demand…
