The Department

2021

This documentary aired in Australia on Sunday 10 October. It was billed as "a look inside the never-before-seen New South Wales child protection system, following careworkers across the state."

The documentary explores the experiences of parents who have lost their children to the state as well as Dept workers charged with protecting children.

The Department acknowledges Australia's history of removing First Nations children on racist grounds, but does not acknowledge other problems resulting in state and federal inquiries since the 1990s.
