The show is called What If There Is No Toilet and is award winning Aussie comic Felicity Ward's stand-up comedy opus on depression, anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome.

Felicity is committed to talking about mental health, and in 2014 created the documentary series - Felicity's Mental Mission �- on ABC to coincide with Australia's Mental Health Week. On What If There Is No Toilet, Felicity says "This show has been a non-stop romp of connecting with people who thought they were weird. Turns out, there are heaps of us! People with IBS, depression, anxiety�This is not a Debbie Downer show. I don't get better. I just wrote some jokes about it, and it's a lovely way to enjoy being part of a mentally ill community, or to come and see what it is to be mentally ill, in a funny way"

So toilet humour at its best!

Great War Stories series 2 starting on TV3 18 April - 24 April

Posted Tuesday 12 Apr 2016

WIFT member Anna Cottrell of AC Productions' seven part series of Great War Stories is starting on TV3's Newshub 18 April - 24 April.

It is Anna's third series for TV3 of mini documentaries telling often searing stories of loss and courage. None celebrate war in any way.

The stories cover - a great grandson reads his great grandfather's love letters. A local author writes a children's story about the tortoise she grew up with. Her relative, a nurse, was given him by a soldier wounded at Gallipoli. And there's the story of NZ's first and only West Indian All Black who played rugby in France near the end of the war.

Antonia Prebble tells the story of the tragic sinking of the troop-carrying ship, the Marquette with New Zealand nurses on board.

Once screened on TV3's Newshub the stories will be available On Demand and on the Culture and Heritage website
