Foxtel announced today that its hit Australian drama series A Place to Call Home will now air at 7.30pm AEDT, on Sunday October 8.

Honoured at the 2017 TV WEEK Logie Awards as Most Outstanding Drama Series, the Australian period showpiece A Place to Call Home will return for its fifth season on Foxtel’s showcase channel and streaming on Foxtel Now.

The new season will jump to 1958, where four years have passed since we left Sarah (Marta Dusseldorp) and the Bligh family. Those years have seen ever-increasing changes in Australian society. The world of wealth and privilege is being eroded, moral values are fraying and a new young generation is rising, full of disaffection with the world of their elders. To them the War is a matter of the dead past, bringing conflict with those who suffered its pain and deprivation. Economic change and the devious actions of unseen enemies threaten Ash Park and, in the midst of the turmoil, love becomes the only sure place anyone can call home.

As the 1950s come to a close, Australia – just as the rest of the world – stands on the cusp of great change. While pastoral families like the Blighs have long farewelled the early ’50s golden era when Australia ‘rode on the sheep’s back’, 1958 brings notable milestones: Qantas Airways introduces a round-the-world air service from Australia to London, Anzac Day (25 April) becomes a national public holiday, Johnny O’Keefe releases his first hit with Wild One, and with it Australian rock and roll is born, the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) opens in Sydney, the first Australian federal election is televised, and a young Brian Henderson hosts the first episode of Bandstand.

The exceptional cast features AACTA award winner Marta Dusseldorp (Sarah) and Hall of Fame TV WEEK Logie Award winner Noni Hazlehurst (Elizabeth) along with Brett Climo (George), Abby Earl (Anna), Craig Hall (Dr Jack), Frankie J Holden (Roy), Sara Wiseman (Carolyn), Jenni Baird (Regina), David Berry (James), Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood (Olivia), Deborah Kennedy (Doris), Tim Draxl (Dr Fox), Mark Lee (Sir Richard), Robert Coleby (Douglas) and with returning guest favourite Martin Sacks (Isaac Gold).

New guest cast will include established and respected actors Aaron Pedersen (Jack Irish/Goldstone), Matt Day (Rake/Tangle), Huw Higginson (Secret City/The Bill)

Season five will also feature up and coming new talent including Madeleine Clunies–Ross (Tomorrow When The War Began) and introduce WAAPA graduate George Pullar.

As a prelude to the new season, tune in on Sunday, October 1 at 8.30pm AEDT to the special A Place To Call Home – The Story So Far to look back at the much-loved drama and take an exclusive look at the new season.

A Place to Call Home Season 5 will screen Sundays from October 8, at 7.30pm AEDT, on showcase and will be available to watch from Foxtel’s on demand library, or streamed on demand on Foxtel’s streaming service Foxtel Now.

Epson Australia steps up with Planet Ark Becomes full partner

Epson Australia steps up with Planet Ark
Becomes full partner

SYDNEY, 26 September 2017 – As part of its ongoing commitment to caring for the environment, Epson has elevated its partnership with Planet Ark to the highest possible level now moving to the top tier with Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, going from a Retail Partner to a Full Partner.

‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ is an innovative recycling program that provides Australians with a free, easy and environmentally-accredited way to recycle their used printer cartridges.

General Manager, Business Division at Epson Australia, Craig Heckenberg, said, “As cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal and inks they represent a significant investment in resources. When they are disposed of into landfill these resources are lost. That’s why Planet Ark joined with Close the Loop and the participating manufacturers to set up the innovative ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling – therefore keeping them out of landfill. That’s also why Epson believes in this program and wants to be a key partner in it.”

The benefits of the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program are many and varied for customers and businesses alike. The successful program is now in its 14th year of operation and this year is on track to surpass 36 million cartridges recycled. With over 4,000 ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ cartridge collection boxes located across Australia, it’s both easy and free to recycle your used cartridges. Regardless of where the cartridges were purchased from they can be dropped off for recycling into any of the collection boxes located at participating retailers and employers. With a zero-waste-to-landfill guarantee the program also promotes and enables strengthened business sustainability and mitigates risk relating to hazardous e-waste. Finally, businesses are rewarded with resource recovery certificates and a potential reduction in waste costs.
