Sir,- In regard to the attack on the ABC film crew in the Todd River on February 8 there seem to be many in the community who are criticizing both the camera crew and the police. These criticisms are unwarranted.
To begin with the film crew was not filming Aboriginal people, as some have suggested. They were filming Indian people as a part of a documentary.
However, had they been filming in the Todd River, it must be pointed out that the Todd River is one of the main tourist highlights of our town and it would be quite normal to take pictures of the Todd River, irrespective of whether there are people there or not, and irrespective of which race of people they might be.

After travelling alone overseas, including in southern Morocco, ESTELLE ROBERTS returned to Alice, grateful for its relative safety. Her confidence has been undermined by a near miss with an intruder and after learning of the brutal rape of a local woman who had left a party that Estelle would have gone to had she been here. Pictured: Sunset off Morocco's Atlantic coastline – beautiful, but hard to appreciate when you're being hassled by local men with their stereotyped ideas of western women. Returning to Alice was a relief ... at first.
