"Now a major television series on Channel 10 starring Ashleigh Cummings, Brenna Harding and Claudia Karvan - this is the definitive Australian story of teenagers navigating the chaos of life. The Text Publishing Company and Random House Australia are delighted to announce that they have combined forces to publish the iconic Puberty Blues by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette. 'By day, we were at school learning logarithms, but by night - in the back of cars, under the bowling alley, on Cronulla Beach, or, if you were lucky, in a bed while someone's parents were out - you paid off your friendship ring.' For Deb and Sue, life is about surfies, panel vans, straight-leg Levis, nicking off from school, getting wasted and fitting in. But why should guys have all the fun? Puberty Blues is raw, humorous and honest. An Australian classic. 'A profoundly moral story' -- Germaine Greer 'I don't recall reading Puberty Blues so much as devouring it. I was about thirteen, alone in my bedroom with the door firmly shut. I was fascinated' -- Kylie Minogue"

Fish-faced moll, rooting machine, melting our tits off: with its raw, in-your-face dialogue, Bruce Beresfords film 'Puberty Blues' has become a cult classic. Based on the autobiographical novel by the outrageous Salami Sisters Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey, 'Puberty Blues' is a coming-of-age chick-flick with bite. Set in the 1970s, it follows the misadventures of Debbie and Sue, two Cronulla girls angling to break out of dickheadland into the coolest surfie gang. But when they finally muscle their way in, Debbie and Sue come to realise the whole scene sucks: who are they to say, Chicks dont surf!? In this lively and honest account, writer and broadcaster Nell Schofield recalls how she won the role of Debbie and what it was like on the set. She looks at the parallels between the film, the book and her own surfside teenage years, and at the extraordinary responses to the film, both on its release and since. Its a story as idiosyncratically Australian as the film that showed everyone who ever had any doubt that chicks can surf.

Abstract: This paper attempts a diffractive analysis that reads Bruce Beresford's Australian populist film Puberty Blues (1981) through the more recent (2012) Channel 10 eight-part series television of the same title. The purpose of this experimental analysis is to notice ways both of these filmic artefacts re/enact gendered semblances performatively, co-creating binary gender relations through Baradian intra-actions with a virtual audience (in the perpetual present). This paper is not a historical account of the texts and/or a review of the substantial literature connected to either text or television/film production in Australia. It attempts to conduct a non-representational analysis as a reading through of the texts with each other. What is significant is the process of examining "how different differences get made, what gets excluded, and how those exclusions matter" (Karen Barad 2007, 30) during inter-action with filmic text and viewer. This manoeuvre posits that by re/turning events as iterative interactions visibility of materiality in the making may be rendered visible. By understanding intra-active processes educators may be able to frustrate delimiting accounts of girlhood as just the way it is and rather utilise these texts to open up other imaginaries of affirmative difference.

In this rich, evocative and challenging book, Chilla Bulbeck examines the impact of feminism on ordinary Australian women. She argues that this has been significant, even for those women who shun feminism. The lives of sixty women of various ages and backgrounds, whose own words make up much of this book, are set against broader changes in society since the 1950s. Bulbeck explores: growing up, education, work, marriage, motherhood and sexuality. Partly a history of feminism, the book also considers feminism's relevance beyond the white middle class.

The book offers a compendium of brief chapters on selected New Zealand and Australian films and television programmes that can be situated within a clear historical context, ranging from highly successful films such as Gallipoli, The Piano, Australia, Once Were Warriors and Heavenly Creatures to less well-known texts that form the basis for intriguing examinations of history, representation and identity. The book is written by a diverse and exciting team of scholars and filmmakers, who illuminate the multifaceted nature of these screen texts, their production, meaning and value for a twenty-first century audience. Making Film and Television Histories will appeal to all those with an interest in Australian or New Zealand history, film or television, and will be of particular value to teachers and trainee teachers wishing to inspire students to engage with history by utilising audiovisual media in the classroom.

Surfing has fascinated filmmakers since Thomas Edison shot footage of Waikiki beachboys in 1906. Before the 1950s surf craze, surfing showed up in travelogues or as exotic background for studio features. The arrival of Gidget (1959) on the big screen swept the sport into popular culture, but surfer-filmmakers were already featuring the day's best surfers in self-narrated two-reelers. Hollywood and independent filmmakers have produced about three dozen surf films in the last half-century, including the frothy Beach Party movies, Point Break (1991) and Chasing Mavericks (2012). From Bud Browne's earliest efforts to The Endless Summer (1966), Riding Giants (2004) and today's brilliant videos, over 1,000 surfing movies have celebrated the stoke. This first full-length study of surf movies gives critical attention to hundreds of the most important films.
