We present a very special breakfast on the 25th December as we dig into the archives to bring you a unique address by Nelson Mandela to the Victorian trade union movement in 1990 at Melbourne Town Hall. Mandela had come to thank them for their solidarity work and for their support in bringing down the apartheid system in South Africa, and 3CR was there broadcasting live.
