We are developing a TV documentary series for the ABC in which we help people to locate and thank a person who once did them a good turn and made a difference to their life.
It may be someone who helped them at a time when they were broke, or low or in trouble – or someone who literally saved their life in some way. It might be that the event happened 5 years ago or 50.
But the point is that there is unfinished business – they want to find that person and thank them for what they did.
We are also seeking people who feel regret at something they have done to someone and who want to apologise to them but don’t know how to find them. It might be a lost relationship that they feel bad about, someone they bullied or gave a hard time to, or someone they cheated or robbed. Whatever it is, it has remained on their conscience and they want to make amends.
The stories will be as different as the individuals who experienced them, but they will all be life-changing for the people involved – and hopefully they will come from all parts of Australia.
Or perhaps someone has failed to return something important that doesn't belong to them and they no longer know how to go about it.
The important thing is that none of the people concerned have yet been able to trace or speak to the person from their past, and they are keen for us to help them.
I would love to have some rural stories as part of this series.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any more information. And thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.
