If the walls of the SBS foyer in Sydney could talk, they’d have plenty to say about the state of the world today, and even more about what it means to be human. That’s largely thanks to a weekly program called Insight which has been hosted by acclaimed journalist, Jenny Brockie since 2001.
Panel shows are usually filled with people trying to outsmart or out-funny the person sitting next to them. They can be glib, awkward and far too easy to switch over when something better comes along.
Insight is different. If you want to understand people, their motivations, their tragedies, their histories and their lives then you can’t afford to miss it. And tonight’s episode, “Child Warriors” is no exception. It kicks off the 2013 season with the question: what happens to children who grow up in extreme political circumstances?

Marc Glasby has been married to his wife Belle for over thirty years. Three years ago, Belle was reunited with her identical twin sister, Dorothy Loader, who had been separated from her at birth. Soon after, Marc fell in love with Dorothy and the three have lived in a polygamous relationship ever since. The trio will appear on tonight’s Insight program at 8.30pm on SBS.
Until the poly relationship I am now involved in, I was completely faithful to my wife for the 30 years that we have been together. I know that if we had not met her sister and if the unique set of circumstances that we found had not been present, then I would have continued to be a happy, faithful, monogamous husband, until the day I died.
I think perhaps that being in a poly relationship with identical twins is quite different to trying the same thing with two entirely different individuals.
