The Slow Death of Australian Children’s TV Drama Anna Potter , Huw Walmsley-Evans , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: The Conversation , 27 April 2017;

'Australian children’s TV may have recently picked up an Emmy Kids award for the ABCME animation Doodles, but otherwise kids’ TV in this country is in a dire state.

'Free-to-air TV networks have to commission certain amounts of children’s programs each year. But in recent years there’s been a dismaying lack of new live action shows, or recognisably Australian content. Instead, local children’s TV has become dominated by animation with little sense of place.'
