Rent Newsfront on DVD


1978 Rated PG 1hr 50m

This captivating film tells the story of the many unsung newsreel cameramen and reporters who worked in postwar Australia before the arrival of television, when a news-hungry population flocked to the cinemas to get the scoop on the latest events. Although competition was fierce, the journalists were invigorated by their work, chasing big and not-so-big stories ranging from dramatic floods to exciting horse races and the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.
