Residents of tiny Australian island fight for independence revolution | 60 Minutes Australia


Martin Clunes: Islands of Australia, part 1, East

Martin begins his odyssey by flying 600 kilometers east over the Pacific Ocean to Lord Howe Island. It's his first experience of Australia's remote island communities: the pace of life is slow and the population is a steady 350. Jack Shick introduces Martin to the treasures of a place that was untouched by humans until Europeans accidentally stumbled across it in 1788, just three weeks after the first mainland colony was founded where Sydney is today.

Australian World War Two History, Labuan Island, Borneo, Malaysia

I visit the Labaun War Memorial and Surrender Point with local expat Australian Peter Searle.

Peter discusses the Sandakan Death March, the greatest single atrocity committed against Australians in war. It is believed that almost
3,600 Indonesians, 1,787 Australians, and 641 British prisoners died at, or between, Sandakan and Ranau.

At Surrender Point on Labuan, the 32nd Japanese Southern Army surrendered to the 9th Division Australian Imperial Forces on 9th September 1945 which led to the end of World War II in Borneo.

The Australian 9th Division, Rats of Tobruk, were heavily involved in reconstructing British North Borneo and rebuilt and re-established a considerable amount of civil infrastructure. The division developed a warm relationship with the local people and its efforts were recognised by the incorporation of the division's colour patch in the coat of arms of the new Colony of British Borneo. These arms were used until British Borneo became the Malaysian state of Sabah in 1963.

A big thank you to Historian, Lynette Silver for clarifying some historical points via email. For more information on any of the above history visit:

8 Reasons Why Americans LEAVE Costa Rica [Why I Left]

The TRUTH about living in Costa Rica: Why do so many Americans leave Costa Rica after moving there? In this video, I explain what causes expats to change their minds about retiring abroad and why I left Costa Rica after 8 years. Some of the initial reasons that people want to move to Costa Rica include the moderate climate, laid back lifestyle, fresh and healthy food, friendly people, beaches, medical tourism, and the low cost of living. But is Costa Rica really a safe and friendly country or is it actually dangerous and expensive? Once they arrive, many people realize that living in Costa Rica wasn't quite what they expected. Unfortunately, that results in people returning home quite soon after arriving.

After helping more than 500 foreigners move to Costa Rica and living there for eight years, this video explains the top reasons why people move back to the USA and why I left, too, so that you know more about what to expect BEFORE you get there. This is the real and sometimes dark truth about living in Costa Rica. What do you think are the biggest pros and cons of living in Costa Rica? Let us know in the comments.
