OZ AFRICAN TV is a fresh and groundbreaking lifestyle show about people of African descent in Australia. It links birth, interest and heritage highlighting positive stories with a focus on socio economic contribution and the affirmative impact this has on the community.

OATV is a multicultural platform that changes perception. It lovingly showcases the inspirational achievements of African people in Australia. It provides and encourages a narrative that positively challenges the barriers recent media events have created, engaging the viewer in interesting and contemporary information about their community, their neighbouring communities, or their diaspora further afield.

At the 2017 Multicultural Awards for Excellence, alongside three SBS reporters, Dorcas was recognized for her work as Founder/Producer and Presenter of OATV. Her Media Award from the Victorian Multicultural Commission acknowledges “outstanding reporting on issues of importance to diverse communities and reporting which contributes to Victoria’s cross cultural understanding” (VMC).
