Documentary maker: Kirsti Melville

Kirsti Melville started at ABC Radio National (Australian Public Service Broadcaster) in 1994, with a BA Communications in one arm and a three-month-old baby in the other!

Her passion for interviewing and feature-making is driven by a desire to pick apart the complexities of human relationships, a love of hearing people's stories and her maddeningly curious (some say nosy) streak!
