An extract from Saturday 18 August 2018 Courier Mail:
” TV SPECIAL – For legendary ABC reporter Sean Dorney, Manus Island is not a hellhole detention centre but a paradise. It was where he married a chief’s daughter, Pauline.
Dorney reported from Papua New Guinea and the Pacific for 40 years, covering everything from political upheavals to earthquakes. Along the way he won a Walkley Award and played in the PNG rugby league national team, the Kumuls.
Dorney made an emotional visit recently to Manus and his return is the subject of a special report on Foreign Correspondent on Tuesday night. It’s compelling TV thanks to Dorney and his talented producer Ben Hawke”.
The Village airs on Foreign Correspondent at 8 pm Tuesday August 21 and 1.30 pm Friday August 24 on ABC TV and at 7.30 pm AEST on Saturday August 25 on the ABC News Channel . . . available on iview after the live showing.
