Australian Generations: Beginnings

The first in a five part oral history series which reflects on life in 20th century Australia, spanning three generations: those born in the 1930s, 1950s and 1970s.

What are the changes and the continuities in life for Australians born four decades apart? In program one we hear memories of childhood, from those who were shaped by World War Two to those who grew up in the 1980s, the decade which heralded the digital age.
