- Discussion about British and American influences on the Australian accent. While there was discussion about absorption of American phraseology, it would have been good to hear more.
- Highlighting Aboriginal English. It would have been good to hear much more of this. Miss Eagle has a question. So many Aboriginal people seem to say ahks for ask (some whitefellas do too but it seems to Miss Eagle to be more widespread among Aboriginal people), does this constitute a legitimate form of Aboriginal English?
- Involvement of non-celebrity people across the nation in some very entertaining clips in the documentary.
English writer and television personality, Melvin Bragg, a few years ago produced a wonderful series titled The Adventure of English. It was superb. Now, discussion of the Australian English/Accent would not have the rich and long history of English but could probably run to a three or four part mini-series.
So the verdict: please do a remake, try harder and be broader.
