Documentary on One

The Grandfather Canoe

Two hundred years after a revered and sacred canoe disappeared from the banks of the St John River in Canada, it turned up in a building in Galway.

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!

Before joining the Social History and Features Unit, Kirsti worked for Women Out Loud, Background Briefing, and Triple J. She has also run training courses for journalists in Indonesia.

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!
