A week or so ago I was interviewed on the telephone by Keri Phillips of ABC Radio National for a Rear Vision program which was to explore the parallels between the efforts of the 1970s Whitlam Government and the Rudd/Gillard Government to secure for the public a greater share of the economic benefits of Australia’s mineral wealth.
The program went to air on Sunday 20 May, with the title Labor, Mining and Scandals, and it contained quite substantial slabs of that pre-recorded interview. More importantly, it is a good piece, well worth a listen.
Live audio of the broadcast, or a download of the podcast, are accessible here.
