Stories of Survival from the Summer Bushfires

In the wake of COVID-19, it's easy to forget that only a few short months ago, hundreds of communities across Australia were faced with fire and smoke, homes destroyed and one of the most difficult bushfire seasons Australia has ever seen.

Not only has the rise of COVID-19 slowed recovery efforts, as the media focus their attentions on a global crisis, those who have lost everything are now also left behind.

Premiering on the Community Radio Network Tuesday 21 April, the CBAA's documentary series From the Embers, takes listeners to the very heart of nine communities affected by the recent bushfire crisis. From the Embers is an important reminder to us all of the essential role that storytelling plays in ensuring we allow those affected to be honoured and heal, without feeling overlooked.

Working alongside KIX FM, Radio Adelaide, 3HCR, 3MGB, 3REG, Braidwood FM, 2EAR, Edge FM and 2MNO, we sent three Producers into the field to get the stories directly from communities, in their voices.
