ABC TV interest in my research:

Recently, ABC Riverland journalist, Tom Fedorowytsch contacted me to find out more about my research. After a couple of meetings, including one at Waikerie at the home of Max Pearson, a report was shown on ABC 7.30SA Friday August 8, 2014. (Max Pearson has given me a great deal of first hand information about the construction of the locks and weirs.)
The segment can be viewed at this link:

The image was taken at Lock 7 in 2010 when Max was showing me the approximate location of the Pearson house during the Lock 7 Construction. He is holding what may have been a tomahawk blade.
