  • Overview
  • Details
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.
