A broadcast by Christine Milne
for the Australian Greens

for the 2013 Federal election.

We want a caring society,

but you can't have a caring society

if you haven't got
a healthy environment.

Clean air, clean water,
uncontaminated soil.

The Greens are consistent.

We've got the courage
to keep on campaigning for it

inside and outside the Parliament.

We'll roll out school funding sooner.

It's madness to cut universities
in order to fund schools.

We want to see universal access
to dental care.

We want to make it
just as convenient and easy

for people to go to the dentist

as when they go to a doctor.

We should think about refugees
in terms of compassion.

These are people who want to invest
their talents, their lives,

their commitment,
to our country.

We need to look back and see that
the refugees who've come here before,

far from being
a threat to the country,

have made us a much richer culture
in Australia.

There are so many opportunities
in addressing global warming

and at the same time
giving people jobs.

When you think about
the future of Australia

and where the job opportunities
are going to be,

they're going to be in growing
high-quality healthy food

and beverages for the future.

That's why it's essential
we look after the environment

and think about what are the
challenges of the 21st century,

and that's where you start to open up
amazing job opportunities.

If you keep on thinking
that Australia's future

is going to come out of
holes in the ground,

you're actually risking the economy.

Caring society recognises
that love isn't about laws.

The Greens are standing up
for a society

in which people care for each other.

That's what the Greens stand for.
When people vote for us,

they can trust us to follow through,
because we care.

for the Australian Greens, Canberra.

Spoken by Christine Milne
and Anthony Aston.

London in 1886...

then the largest city
in human history

and the centre of the known world.

With its self-importance, its dirt,
its wealth and awful poverty

it seems a mystery to us now.

It was a different world,
an entirely different world.

But there is a guide
to this human jungle -

Charles Booth,
Victorian London's social explorer.

Booth produced a series
of pioneering maps

that colour-coded
the streets of his London

according to the ever-shifting class
of its residents.

Booth's maps are like scans,

X-rays that reveal to us the secret
past beneath the skin of the present.

If people knew how many cattle
was killed there

I don't think they'd live there.

He wanted his maps to chart stories
of momentous social change...

Those houses were
the lowest of the low.

..the ebb and flow between enormous
wealth and terrible poverty,

how easily desirable
or well-to-do neighbourhoods

could descend into the haunts
of the vicious and semi-criminal

and back again.

Now the maps can help us
reveal the changes

that have shaped all our lives

and made the story of the streets
the story of us all.

Oh, my goodness!
The old toilet's gone.

So we're going back

to one of the tens of thousands
of streets Booth mapped...

to tell the story of how, sacrificed
to new ideas of urban planning,

a 200-year-old community
was bulldozed.

For some unknown reason
they wanted to condemn Deptford.

Deptford High Street,
in the heart of London,

just four miles from the financial
capital of the world.


A Victorian relic
marooned amid 1970s sprawl.

When Charles Booth arrived in 1899
it was booming,

the Oxford Street of South London.

More than 100 years on

it's now one of the poorest
high streets in the capital.

This used to be fantastic.
It's gone, finished.


The story of Deptford High Street
is of how it lost both its wealth

and the community
which had given it life.

August 1899.

13 years
into his epic survey of London,

Charles Booth visits
Deptford High Street,

incorporating it into
his vast social map of the city.

Booth's map is a breakthrough,

a new way to anatomise
the complex lives of Londoners

and in a district
rarely visited by respectable people

it throws up surprising results.

Booth marks Deptford High Street
as red for well-to-do,

the second highest social ranking

in the middle of one of London's
poorest districts.

It's a busy, thriving high street

where traders live above their shops
and prosper.

Despite their working class origins,

one in three shopkeeping families

One family trading on the high street
when Booth arrived

is still here today.

John Price owns the Bent Can
discount shop,

yards from where he was born

and from where his people
have always had market stalls.

I dunno what we're gonna do
about the prices.

Robert keeps telling me
I'm too dear.

And I keep telling him
he's getting service.

You don't get service...
With a smile, John.

When he goes into Sainsbury's
they go dip.

Then he comes in here,
I go "Hello, Robert."

Who's the cheapest?
What do you mean?

Don't go for the cheapest,
go for the best.

What about Sainsbury's,
are they cheaper?

At least you'll come to my funeral.

You're always going to Sainsbury's,
spending your money.

I won't go to your funeral!

Your family used to live
in nearby streets round here.

This one here.

All right, Adrian,
just going out a second.

Grandfather was a Price,

my grandmother was really a Ovenell,
and they married together.

So the Prices have probably
been here about 250 years,

the Ovenells, I think,
have been here longer.

We're going down Hales Street.

Down here is where
we used to have our house,

just on this corner here.

This was my nan's house.

It's hard to imagine now
that this used to be a gate.

And that used to be our backyard

and that's where all the stalls
used to be.

Where's it gone?
They made it a road.

They made it a road.
The arch used to come here.

Down like that,
big arch coming through

and you used to
pull the barrows through.

This used to take 100 barrows.

Me nan's family, their house used to
be here, right next to the pub.

There's the pub, and
the Ovenells' house used to be here.

You see how easy it was,
you used to fall out of bed

and go to work on the stall
at the top of the high street.
