Hi Simon,
Could you please check the following transcript for me? Thank you very much.
Population growth affects environment, jobs, housing, transport, roads and infrastructure. 22.7 million people's growing at the rates of 1.6 %. Every two minutes a baby is born, every three somebody dies and during that time, an extra person arrives from overseas. 37 people are added to our population every hour. Since fertility and mortality are difficult to change, some believe the answer lies in roaring migration, currently said at just over 168.000. History shows Australia has always been upset about population. Incredibly, 1 in 4 Australians was born overseas. Today, the biggest arrivals are from India, followed closely by the Chinese, then from ..., the fourth spot the British, finally Koreans.

Here's the full transcript:

Population growth affects the environment, jobs, housing, transport, roads and infrastructure: 22.7 million people growing at a rate of 1.6%. Every 2 minutes a baby is born, every 3 somebody dies, and during that time an extra person arrives from overseas. 37 people are added to our population every hour. Since fertility and mortality are difficult to change, some believe the answer lies in lowering migration, currently set at just over 168,000. History shows Australia has always been obsessed about population. Incredibly, 1 in 4 Australians was born overseas. Today, the biggest arrivals are from India, followed closely by the Chinese. Then, from across the Tasman are New Zealanders; in forth spot the British; and finally Koreans.
