Sharing Experiences With Younger Folk

Filed under: General — MurrayBacon @ 4:09 pm Sun 16th January 2011

I am assembling a directory of commercial films, which contain issues that are presented well enough, to offer training and perhaps teach skills. I am asking for a few people to also watch these DVDs and to confirm that they do present these issues well enough, to be usefull to others. In some cases, they contain a mixture of useful and perhaps some inaccuracies, which need to be identified, so that they do not cause problems.

I am also helping a few people (myself among them), to make their experiences with separation available to younger people, who need to know how NZ actually works. This is aimed at helping people to negotiate their separations, at lowest cost, financially and relationship-wise.

Request for help:

People willing to put in a some time watching and discussing the DVDs, please call me on (09) 638 7275 or E MAIL murray_bacon @ clear .

People willing to help with filming and paperwork, for peoples stories, please also phone me on (09) 6387275. In particular, people with WORD and POWERPOINT skills would be very helpful.

Thanks, MurrayBacon.


  1. Thanks Murray. I’m pleased John has added ‘like’ for facebook because I think this is very important and I want to share it around. I wonder whether lawyer’s best time of business is after Christmas because of the holidays.

  2. Look no ruther than that missing pieces or persons programme, as most of the kids are looking for their fathers and more often than not they come to realise it was their mothers keeping them away!

  3. This is not exactly what you are looking for but I’ll add it here anyway.
    Recently I watched Presumed Innocent (1990) – Harrison Ford.
    I thought this film was realistic. The focus is placed on the men throughout the whole film but if you watch it you realise all the really serious crimes are perpetrated by women. The women mostly get away with little consequences. I could go into more detail why this is realistic but it would spoil the film.

  4. Disclosure is another good one. Focussing on sexual harrassment where the man is accused but it is the woman who is the perpetrator!
