    ABC the show is "Catalyst" for any Australians on here.
    I hope I got the message across as I was so nervous. I hate the lime light.
    The woman that interviewed me was a vet.
    Sharon is this her in Dr Jonica Newby at TV ABC Catalyst, see text, photo plus video via this link address.

    The Pedigree Dogs Exposed program is on the 10th September. After the program has aired an ABC online forum will be available, this for discussing the issues raised in the film and the relevance for Australia's dogs.

    After that the Catalyst program is on the 17th September, this for Dr Jonica Newby's report on pedigree dog breeding in Australia. I think there maybe discussions regarding this also on the ABC online forum.

    Here is the link address where you may find the ABC online forum and which will probably be listed after the programs have aired.

    Sharon thanks for the news article. In it I noticed in Australia Lee Pieterse with Griffon Bruxellois was mentioned. Back in January I read something about her in DogWorld magazine which mentioned the following and from this address.
    http://www.dogworld.co.uk/Breeds/BreedNotes/2-GRI-(1)

    "It is Lee who has campaigned so long and hard to get us all to sit up and take notice of SM and she has all of her Griffons MRI scanned. Because of this she is able to do Grade A to Grade A matings and get Grade A progeny. Before you think it is easy to get Grade A etc, let me remind you that it was Lee who first ‘discovered’ SM in her stock and courageously brought our attention to it. She then decided that it was no good going out of Griffons as she liked them so much so she fought to eradicate the problem and hoped that we would all do the same. If only breeders in the past had been so open about their problems. If we are to make a New Year’s resolution let us all, collectively, fight for the continuous health of our breed. I hope you all have a successful year ahead and remember if you are breeding a litter that with the credit crunch you may not be getting as many puppy enquiries."

    Sophie's Neuroligist said that Lee has been working along side her to help get the message to Cav breeders to screen, so she is indeed someone we should be thanking. I didn't know of this lady when I was interviewed for that programme, now I wish I did know of her.

    Sharon, out of interest I noticed on the UK Cavalier Club MRI List that 21 Cavaliers are listed by Australians, maybe there might be some more who are NOT listed on a UK site, see at this address.

    Sharon you may be interested in the following as the Catalyst person who interviewed you is one of the Panellists for the ABC TV internet chat "Live Forum", and I may as well post this here as well as I have just posted it to a few other places.

    Across Australia the documentary is on ABC1 National this Thursday night at 8:30pm AEST, (UK time Thursday 10 September 2009 at 11:30am UTC+1 hour BST). Straight after the 1 hour documentary at 9.30pm an ABC internet Chat "Live Forum" will become available with discussion postings from the following Panellists and where I think the Public can join in with some posts of their own.
    The ABC Forum for it is now listed at this address.
    http://www2b.abc.net.au/tmb/Client/Board.aspx?b=102

    ABC LIVE FORUM - Pedigree Dogs Exposed.
    Coming up this Thursday night at 9:30pm AEST.
    Panellists:
    Jemima Harrison, the documentary producer.
    Hugh Gent, President ANKC Australia.
    Dr Karen Hedberg, Veterinarian and Chairman ANKC Health Committee.
    Dr Peter Higgins, Veterinarian and ANKC Media Spokesperson.
    Dr Bidda Jones, Chief Scientist for RSPCA Australia.
    Jonica Newby, ABC Catalyst program.

    Then ABC1 Catalyst 8:00pm Thursday 17 September, Jonica Newby for ABC will presents a segment in the Catalyst program called "Pedigree dogs - are they being bred to death?"
