ABC Current Affairs

The ABC produces many current affairs programmes, including The 7.30 Report and Lateline. These programmes often use resources or reports from one another. For instance, an Asia-Pacific-based report from the week's Foreign Correspondent will be edited for use during that same week's Asia-Pacific Focus programme.

News reports from ABC News are also edited, often with new material added on, for use on that night's Lateline.

The ABC's Current Affairs department has also won a number of awards over the years.

ABC Public Affairs

Apart from the usual coverage of Public Affairs & Politics during programmes such as ABC News, Lateline and The 7.30 Report, the ABC has a dedicated hour-long Public Affairs programme every Sunday at 9am, Insiders, which is hosted by Barrie Cassidy. The programme comprises a news update, an interview with a prominent political figure (usually a Federal Government minister or Opposition spokesperson), two reviews of the week (one of political cartoons, the other of the political situation) and a discussion of the week in politics and public affairs with a panel of guests, most of whom are from prominent newspapers.

The programme is produced in Melbourne, hence the use of the nearby Australia Network ABC News set for both the news updates and Inside Business (which follows Insiders).
