Black Gold 1970s

Black Gold is a 5-part series that digs deep through the 3CR archive to present ... Black Gold. We take listeners from the 1970s right through to the present day with a look at how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander broadcasters at 3CR covered some incredible community events and significant political struggles. We’ll attend a land rights meeting in 1978, celebrate the life of broadcaster Lisa Bellear, and hear about the successes of the campaign to save Northlands Secondary College. We’ll also reflect back on the anti-Bicentenary actions in 1988 and get up-to-date with the ongoing struggle for sovereignty and treaty. Tune in each Wednesday from 7-8am for Black Gold.

Each week Jennifer Martin and John Langer will mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
