I find the ABC Radio National to a wonderful fountain of inspiring programs -always taking you into new unknown areas of life -it is a National Treasure -keep up the excellent work
ABC turned totally left. I escaped communist regime of Poland in 1979, and finished in Australia. But it looks like regime has caught up with me.
It is the most enlightening and informative radio station. I highly recommend this channel for anyone wanting to be up to date with current topics on economic, enviroment and science
This is how I used to think of Radio National some years ago when I washed around with bulky headphones. I’ll let you know what I think now when I’ve had a chance to hear it again. regards. Judith
Having tuned in to RN for a number years via the internet, and while not all programmes are to my liking, I recall a prominent statement from my childhood which explains human nature throughout the ages. John Lydgate's poem, made famous by Abraham Lincoln.......You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all the people all of the time” says it all.......To all those not pleased with RN, may I suggest surfing the web and finding a more agreeable radio station with which to gather information and enjoyment.
More nonsense on Thursday night about flu viruses by Jeremy Brown on the ABC. He constantly said that viruses attack humans. Now, how can anything which has no legs, brains, ears or eyes organize themselves to attack humans on mass in a pandemic? Attacking humans on mass would take great organisational skills and these viruses would need some kind of headquarters. Thus, the whole idea of viruses is a total nonsense which was created by the medical fraternity to make money out of gullible people. A more logical explanation of thousands or millions of people dying would be vitamin deficiency. Thus, the flu pandemic in 1919 which coincided with the first World War, was caused by the food shortages which were created by the war. Now, that's a much more logical solution.
Disappointedly biased. The ABC is not meant to be the bizarro version of the Daily Telegraph! You are meant to be intelligent & reasonably balanced. No one is expecting you to not be left wing - I'm left wing. You are however expected to to not editorialise & slant every piece of news which you idealogically disagree with - this is at best tiresome, naff & depressing. At the very best. You think you're hip but haven't got a clue as to where the hip is in the body let alone any other meaning of the word. If you had to pay a swear box fee of a dollar for every 'ist' word - misogynist, sexist, ableist, racist etc - uttered each day on your programs, the corporation would be broke. So dull. Gender centered programs on women outnumber male-centered by way more than 100-1. I can't recall a single male-centered program in point of fact. Every now and again a dissenting voice is allowed & these are a poignant reminder of what the ABC is supposed to be and could be again if you would just stop contratulating yourselves on how 'progressive' you are. I find a lot of your programs depressing, biased, tokenistic & most damningly, pointless. You don't have to be right-wing, just please please please stop being so biased & stupid.
I cannot connect with radio national from Ballarat where I live
Just listened to your religion report on Israel and found it to be quite unbalanced missing essential facts and thus distorting history. I wonder how you can give a religious perspective with only a secular historian speaking on Israel. He doesn't speak for me as a religious Jew. His facts are different to mine. It was never mentioned for instance that the US embassy is in West Jerusalem. West Jerusalem is and always will be Jewish under any settlement with the Palestinians. It has never been under dispute. It is only East Jerusalem which is under dispute. East Jerusalem is the historical area of Jerusalem. It is dishonest to pretend that the opening of the US embassy presents any barrier to a future Palestinian state. I guess most of you don't know Jerusalem well enough to understand Jerusalem geographically and therefore due to ignorance keep perpetuating a myth.
