Every strong, important public broadcaster should have a primetime slot for filmmaker-driven documentary programming. The ‘Storyville’ strand is helping to keep the documentary world alive.

Beyond any outcry over the loss of such a vital contributor to our public discourse, it would also simply be a bad business decision to lose ‘Storyville’ or, more importantly, one of its best and brightest, Nick Fraser.

Don Edkins, Documentary Filmmaker, Steps [South Africa]
