Sarah Ferguson returns with a vivid investigation into domestic violence in Australia. 'I think every bit of filming deserves our full focused attention and effort.' Sarah Ferguson is very, very tired. “Knackered as buggery,” she says with typical frankness. The ABC journalist is coming to the end of editing her two-part documentary on domestic violence Hitting Home that begins on Tuesday night, doing the publicity rounds and is still dealing with “thousands” of complex legal problems that arose from the series.
Hitting Home will be shown on ABC on Tuesday 24 November and Wednesday 25 November at 8,30pm. Following the second episode of the series, Julia Baird will host a special edition of Q&A on domestic violence at 9.30pm.
