Title: The Extended Filaments of the Magellanic Stream

Abstract: I will report on the detection of extended filaments of compact HI clumps in a re-analysis of HIPASS data. These faint clumps are located at distances of up to 20° from the main filament of the Magellanic Stream, but their radial velocities and morphology suggest that they form extended and probably mainly ionised filaments associated with the Magellanic Stream. I will also present the results of high-resolution follow-up observations of some of the clumps with the ATCA.
