Series 5, Episode 1:
Kicking off Series 5 of Creatures of the Industry, is part one of an extended interview with Don Rust. We begin the interview discussing his first experiences in the industry around the late '60s and joining the BLF when he worked as as a laborer and dogman early on, on-the-job training before the ubiquity of on-site radios, the ins-and-outs of crainage across many jobs big and small.
Part one of this interview concludes with a discussion around Don's experiences with changes in technology and organising in the industry from the 70s and 80s, major issues, hours, stoppages, and... Grollo's Rialto contract.
