Hello, I'm Jane welcome to the program. Hello, I'm Jane Hutcheon, welcome to the program. The
name June welcome to the program. name June Dally-Watkins has
been synonymous with etiquette and deportment in Australia for more than 60 years. A successful model, she went on to try her hand at business, opening the country's first deportment school. Awarded an Order of Australia for her efforts, she spoke with Kathryn Stolarchuk on her difficult start in life and why slowing down isn't an option, despite being in her 80s.June Dally-Watkins, welcome to One Plus One.Thank you so much.June, you have had an extraordinary life, from growing up in a small mining town in northern NSW to becoming a top model and a successful businesswoman after launching Australia's first ever deportment schools. Why deportment?Well, when I was modelling, my mother said "June, so many people ask you your advice and guidance, I've read about a charm school, there's one in London and there's one in New York. She said why don't you start a charm school. I said I would never start a charm school, that doesn't sound real. I would like to have a school of deportment or a personal development that was absolutely real where I could include good manners and presentation, fashion and wardrobe and it took off and fashion and took fashion and wardrobe and it for 63 years and now we're in Hong Kong and negotiating with China.Wow. Your early years are considered controversial because you were considered an illegitimate child. Did you ever know your father?I did not meet my father until I was already are married and children of my own. Amazing that I would see a man sitting among the audience when I was doing fashion shows and I started to think this is strange and that same man had come out of the school, driven out this funny school, I walked two miles to that school and back again to my grandfather's property and it reminded me of that man who called me over to the fence and gave me some lollies. It was mentioned in the newspapers that my mother had died and then on the Saturday morning when I went in to teach, somebody came and said "Your father's outside and wants to meet you". And I did. What did that mean to you?Well, then he said "Now I'm going to look after you and take care of you". I thought that was nice but it didn't really work out. Not really. His wife, though, at that time has stayed my very dear friend. But he has passed on but his wife has stayed a good friend. Isn't that amazing.That is amazing.Life is incredible, this is what I find.During your career you travelled to the US and had a brief remember ro man's with the Hollywood actor Gregory Peck. He invited you to Paris and you declined. Have you thought how your life would have been had you accepted that invitation?I would have been an American. Greg Peck stayed a good friend of mine all the rest of his life. When he flew out to Melbourne to make 'On the Beach', he phoned me to come and meet his life. When he left Rome and went to Paris, I felt that I had to come back to my mother. He met someone and married that lady and he was the most charming, handsome, delightful human being and died on my birthday a few years ago. Isn't that amazing. But stayed a dear friend for the rest of his life.But after you did eventually marry somebody else and had children, you decided to continue working full-time. Back then, a lot of people had a big problem with that, didn't they ?I already had my school and it was very, very successful. Then I met John Clifford who was very Gregory Peckish, and we married. I remember my father-in-law on the wedding day patting me on the head and looking Australian Open at John saying "Don't worry son, as soon as the children start coming, she will want to give up her business" and I remember me talking to myself, which I learnt to do up there at Watson's Creek, I'm saying to myself "No way". So I kept my business going and had four children and I was very much blessed. Especially going much blessed. to work when much blessed. Especially to work when pregnant, that was disgusting. But I believe a to work when pregnant, that woman had a disgusting. But I believe woman had a right to have her
own life disgusting. But I believe a woman had a own life and I wanted to have children. own life and I wanted children. I was being an own being an own ly child. I had being an own ly two boys and two girls. being an own ly child. I two boys and two girls. I two boys and two girls. I have seven grandchildren and six of them are boys. them are boys.What about your husband, did he struggle with you working full-time or was he supportive?Well, John was a very dear, kind husband but he was given a hard time. His friends condemned him and they would say "Poor John, you're neglected by your wife", so we did separate. I think that John was encouraged by friends, the people around him, "Well June has no right working, she should look after her poor starving children".In the face of all that, what made you persevere?I had a right. I felt I had a right to have my own life and my own career. I had seen my mother and her friends, who the husband would be out the front being charming and wonderful and the wife would be in the back doing the hard work and then when the children grew up and left, the wife had nothing, you know. I didn't want that.When you look back at your life, would you describe it as a rags to richest tail and is the fairytale still continuing?I will always be busy. I believe in big busy. I will work for the rest of my life. I believe the most precious things in life cost nothing. They are the best of all, the smile, manners, good posture and I don't want to stop what I'm don't want to stop what doing. When I was a little girl and lived with my grandparents and my mother on my grandparents' farm, I walked two miles, down the hill, across the river and up another hill to school and two or more kilometres as they call it back home at the end of the day. And I spent that time dreaming and imagining.June Dally-Watkins, thank you for speaking to One Plus One.It's my absolute joy. And thank you for your invitation.

He's a former fisherman who turned his love of the ocean into a cinema performance. Filmmaker David Hannan has won international acclaim for his extraordinary under water images of tropical coral reefs and it's that obsession with coral that secured him a number of Emmy Awards. But after more than 40 years behind the camera, he's now making it his mission to entice others to appreciate these fragile under water ecosystems. David Hannan is speaking with Sarah Clarke. David Hannan, thank you for joining One Plus One. You started as a spear fisherman and now you shoot documentaries. Why the change of heart?I think everybody has changed. I started off crawling out of the bath into the waves when I was three to discover surfing and discovered fish I could spear. My father was an avid hunter. That was cool 40-45 years ago to grow up being a hunter. Nobody knew there wasn't anything wrong. There isn't anything wrong with hunting things. I feel that today. I would enjoy spear fishing if I had the opportunity but I'm busker in the water these days doing something I find much more exciting which is photographing fish and trying to capture these incredible moments that I've spent my whole life seeing under water and bay want these people to see the moments I see.It was the love of diving that got you to love under water. What came first?I liked all things about the sea. I loved surfing. I ended up doing a lot of ocean swimming and things. I started to put a mask on, everything I saw under there drew me in more and more and more. When you start getting into the under world, sort of as getting into the under water world, sort of as an world, sort of as an observer world, sort of you quickly progress to show people and you people and your friends what
you just people and you just saw. It gets you frustrating after you you just saw. It frustrating after amazing experiences you haven't got after amazing you haven't got any proof or
evidence to show you
after amazing experiences and you haven't got evidence to this exciting stuff you're talking about. It becomes a desire to talking about. It becomes desire to communicate with desire other people to show other people to you have seen.What you have
seen is pretty extraordinary. I've seen seen I've seen the images, the I've vision. It's another I've seen the images, vision. It's another world?It
is I've seen the images, the
vision. It's another is another world. I mean I'm used to that other is another world. I mean used to that other world. For used to that me it's my natural world. But then I have times under there that takes me out of that zone. I go this is truly amazing for me and that's sort of I guess the types of images I want to bring to people, the stuff that really amazes me. I can get board easily. I've board easily. I've seen it all. If I see something really magical, I hope that's going to be the type of thing that blows people's mind.You have obviously dived all around the world. What are some of the best places you have seen and captured?I'm not really a global diver. Because I work for myself and built up the library-based business I have, I've worked in my region and the region, I call my region is Australia, Nine galon and venturing off to Antarctic when I'm sick of reefs. Those are the key places I've worked. Some of the reefs I'm working on would take a lifetime to see the spectrum of the entire reef. There is 15,000 kilometres of Australia's coast lines.You have won a couple of Emmys and shot a number in of documentaries. It is it because you enjoy the shooting part and sharing what you have seen or has that moved to wanting to protect what you have seen?The work I do is basically in two parts. I would like to create my own projects and share the footage and the imagery that you have in the library with others who are doing cool projects. I like to use the imagery and get involved with Biggar imagery and Biggar advertise particular ventures and produce projects dear to my heart. The other side to me is to side to me is to use this imagery via other campaigning groups imagery via groups and associations and NGOs to get groups and associations NGOs to get ocean conservation and education awareness of all the issues happening out visually.It is it because you are afraid of what you have seen, others won't be able to see in a certain period of time because of the damage?I'm convinced they won't be able to see it. In the first ten years I brought out a program called Coral Sea dreaming which I've done another version of. I went back after the first program was a big success, I went back and said I will do this in high definition. I went back to all the places on the Barrier Reef I filmed and they were all dead. I had to go to New Guinea to record the images. Every year I've gone there, I've seen the degradation. It's not a theory, it's before your eyes. You go back to places and there is nothing left. People should really get out there quickly and experience it.It must be heartbreaking to see the damage that has been done even in that short period of time?It is heartbreaking. We learn to live with this, the scientists because we see it, we get used to the horror, the initial horror. What is heartbreaking is that people debate it and wonder if it's as bad as you say. So I don't know how to change that except to bring people the most beautiful images you can of the world and then let them keep reading the media that's coming. You will not see positive media about the ocean issues. My job is to show the beauty.How would you describe yourself if you are educating, you are also looking to protect, you are also a cinematographer, how would you describe yourself in one sentence, you seem to be wearing a number of hats?A reluctant conservationist because I really would like to be doing nothing more than being an artist. That's what drives, that's what my passion for this was - art. But conservation is where - I guess I'm an artistic conservationist. That might be the best description because I'm trying to marry the two together now.Do you think people are listening to what you are saying and the visual images showing what you can see now and what you have seen past, and the degradation, do you think enough is being done internationally?There are two questions there really. The first part, human beings have come along way, there is ministers for climate change in every country in the world. We have really progressed even on issues of climate change. People have really changed, they are very aware. But unfortunately the rate of change that is happening in the oceans is so rapid that it's not that helpful that we have not all become aware. not that helpful that we all become aware. It's not
about about taking radical about being aware but it's about taking radical action. I don't think our population is cape Alf doing it, for economic and other reasons. Why do I do it, why do I keep doing if I'm so pessimistic? I do think the oceans can be healthy again one day. But we need to do some pretty important projects like put them away in coral cryogenics. We are doing this with rainforest a animals but with coral reefs, there is hardly anything happening. We have the capacity to freeze life and store it in aquariums and keep it healthy and alive and give future generations the possibility of bringing it back in a healthy ocean. It may sound strange but that is what inspires me by knowing it's possible.Thanks for joining One Plus One.Thanks for having me. ComplupAnna Incerti is an actor, writer and documentary writer.

After completing a book co written 2011. After completing a co written with William called 'Worse Things Happen at Sea', about the meaning and value of family life. William McInnes, welcome to One Plus One.Hello, how are you.You were born in Redcliffe Queensland.When.When did the storytelling begin? Did your parents tell you stories?Yeah, sure. I was hearing about mum growing up in Wales and dad was always telling stories. You would go home and they would tell - you would sit around the table and they would tell you what happened during the day and all these characters they had met and that was fun. My brother and my sisters would tell stories. You would be introduced to their world and they would just yak all the time. That was good. I don't know if it was any different to any other family, but you share those stories of what happened during the day and your own language, your own lingo builds up. It was like a secret language. I think lots of families had that.Did you always want to grow up and be an actor?No, no. I mean, - no. I mean acting is one of those things, I mean I've said this a lot of times to people, but there's no justice to it. I mean there's no fairness involved. It's basically how you look and what sort of type you are and luck and fortune and timing plays a really important part. It's relatively really an unsatisfactory thing to do with your life because there is always someone better off than you, no matter where you are in your live, you can always find something to moan and grown about because someone has a part you should have or someone got a part you could do better or some injustice. It's one of those things that you get constantly rejected. You know, you're not good enough, you're not the right type or you're too old or you're too fat. That's one of the unsatisfying things about acting. For whatever talents you are, you get pegged doing the same thing overall. You know, you can wear it and find other ways to entertain yourself but a lot of the time if you get type cast, you have only got a little hole of opportunity to ply your trade. When you look at people, actors don't have much more than about five years really because everything hangs right and you look good and you just get pegged doing the same thing. And then when you change physically, you can't change what people physically, what people want you to do.You said you get a sort of good gig acting for about five years. acting for about five Was 'Blue Heelers' your high point then?To some people it probably is. I don't know. I mean, it's more of a career thing, you know. Because acting it a temporal thing. You have a use-by date when you are an being torch it's like having a carton of milk and the milk is going to go off sooner or later. It's every actor's nightmare when the producer reaches into the casting fridge and goes "He's gone off". You have to put yourself into a longer form of dairy product. I'm a smelly cheese at the moment.You are about to appear in 'Time of our lives'.Yes, 'Time of our lives'.Your use-by date hasn't arrived yet.The artistry of make-up and hair dye can cover up a multitude of and hair dye can cover up multitude of since.Do you still enjoy acting?Yeah, do.It seems to be the smaller do.It part of do.It seems to be part of the mix that is you. You do dock owes, you do books. The acting is sideline now?I do like to do a little bit of a lot of things. It's not a little part, but it's not as big a part as it was. I'm sure when I got out of drama school, I wanted to be, I don't know, the Best Actor there could be. But you realise that it's not going to happen, that's the way it is. You realise maybe I'm not that ambitious, maybe I do like just going off home and seeing the kids and the family. You don't want to actually really conquer anything artistically. You like to create and tell stories. That's what I do. Just to be an actor and a successful one, you have got to put in a lot of leg work, you have to engage in a lot of planning and strategic daring, I guess. You have got to be able to sort of compartmentalise your live and say I'm not going to spend more time with the kids I've got them, I'm going to go over there to wherever the action is and I've got to plan ahead and sacrifice a lot of my life to get on. That's not what I'm about really. I don't say that as any judgment on somebody who has, you know, sacrificed something in their life to get on in acting, good on them. But no, I suppose it's not a little part, it's a part of what I do. You know, I'm a single parent now. I can't really just run-off and do anything that I'd like. So you compromise your rationale and this thing came up and it was a really interesting contemporary drama. It was a really good cast and the producers were nice people and I thought it's in Melbourne and I don't have to travel that far. It never stopped me. Melbourne traffic...You and your wife Sarah wrote a book together, 'Worse Things Happen at Sea', which I just finished reading. I was really surprised to read in that, that Sarah wrote about losing your first child Cosmo at birth and the doctors never said they were sorry. I wonder, given what you have gone through, I didn't realise that you had lost a son, you have lost Sarah, do
you

times?Not bitterness, you can't feel times?Not bitterness, can't feel bitterness. You feel sadness and really acute loss, I think. But stuff happens in life. I mean I could have been born indigenous, I could have not given opportunities, I could not have been given access to a good education simply because of the colour of my skin, I could have been born somewhere else. Sarah wrote in that book that sometimes you should not expect happiness like it's some dumb magazine article, like how you can be happy. Those things drive me up the wall. Shit happens to people sometimes for no reason other than that's...Life.We all die, you me, me, it ends. Getting your head around that is hard. Whatever your faith system is, in one sense we all stop existing and I mean that's pretty scary. Not being here, not existing. I guess religious faiths have been created by head onnism can sometimes take you from realisation that it's so temporary, life, but she gave to so temporary, life, but gave to me, I think, the best expression of dignity gave to me, I think, the expression of dignity and
honour and grace that I've come across. You know, we all die and her great gift, I think, was to show that even though it's a bugger, it just happens and you can approach it with a lot of grace and courage, which is what she did. I think sometimes, I'm not quite sure I will ever understand just how courageous she was really because a lot of people go through it and I don't think they get the respect they deserve in a way. Because, you know, people win a sporting trophy or win an acting award or have a hit song, I don't know. They are the heroes. They get their photos everywhere, they get their portraits hung in galleries, you know. A quirk of birth gets you a profile inside a coin. That pales into insignificance when you look at the decency and the courage which people who are living with a terminal disease or a serious disease conduct themselves. And, you know, you don't need to bang on about it, but bitterness - maybe a little bit. But I think being bitter would cheapen the great gift she gave and that was embracing life, understanding that it's temporary. It's temporary nature is its glory because the best way to live a good life is to engage in life. My dad died not long after Cosmo. I remember him saying that a good life is one where you share it with someone and you do your best to leave the place a bet er place when she did it. My dad it. I would like to think I could too. It is a bugger but you feel sad and you feel awful but then, you know, you have got to get up and get on with it because it's going to happen to us all. So the best way to celebrate life, I think, is to embrace it and eat as many dim sims as possible.Thank you for speaking to One Plus One.Thank you.You can see One Plus One on ABC News 24 or you can click on iView.
