1988, 60 Minutes
Deals with social interaction and explores the themes of the individual and society.
At the moment of birth, each one of us emerges unknowingly into a complex web of social relationships. Very much a part of this intricate maze, most of us spend the rest of our lives exploring its patterns, seeking meaning in endless connections, striving for harmony and constantly adapting to change after change.
Living Together shows individuals and groups interacting within Australian society The first theme - The Individual and Society - explores this interconnectedness. The second looks at prejudice, discrimination, social inequality, stereotypes, racism, minority groups and people living with disabilities. Resolving Our Differences considers why conflicts arise and how they can be resolved. Working Together focuses on groups that are formed for specific purposes and how they can achieve their goals, and the final theme looks at how individuals create cultural change.
