SBS statement regarding Once Upon a Time in Punchbowl

Friday 20 December, 2013
Michael LaHoud is one of a number of interviewees that feature in the documentary series Once Upon a Time in Punchbowl, which explores the history of the Lebanese-Australian community in Sydney’s south-west, the challenges the community has faced and how they have fought to overcome them.  

This is a follow-up series to the award-winning Once Upon a Time in Cabramatta.

The integrity and accuracy of SBS programming and respect for our audience is paramount, therefore the network has decided to remove the series from its schedule until full investigations are carried out to its satisfaction.

SBS will work with its production partner Northern Pictures to review and verify the documentary’s material.

Once Upon a Time in Punchbowl will air later in 2014.
