Hatch, Match & Dispatch steps inside the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM), for an intimate look at the milestones that unite us all.
The Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages (BDM) is the place where the most momentous events of our lives happen. We go there when the stakes are highest and when we’re at our most joyful and vulnerable. Emotions run high and the recurring theme that unites everyone in the building is love. Landmark events unfold every day: young lovers get hitched on a budget; marriage parties roll in and out like clockwork, and intimate personal moments get thrown around like confetti. And then there's death...
Witness firsthand funny, romantic, emotional and sometimes unhinged moments, following stories to maternity wards and hospitals, family homes, funeral parlours, cemeteries, and beyond.
Hatch, Match & Dispatch brings us stories of life, love and loss.

I saw the series that was broadcast last year and it was very interesting. Is it a new series being broadcast now?

One episode showed one of the NSW BMD transcription agents working with someone trying to find info.  I shouted at the screen that they should just use Rootschat and the info would have been found very quickly, but they didn't listen..... ;)

This is "Series 1" so must be a repeat, I had not see it before so must have missed it when it was shown last year.

Perfectly ok Ruskie, things do crop up. Thanks for keeping it on your to do list the next time you are there.

Cheers :)

Judith, you are not the only one who finds that the TV doesn't listen.   I think it is worse though when I talk to the puter screen during some RChat threads, and it takes a moment or so, or sometimes far far longer,  for the RChatter's light to turn on.
