Bush Telegraph on Radio National, 15/08/2014 11.30 am.

It will be an honour to share an interview on Bush Telegraph with Charlie Adams tomorrow. Charlie is one of my initial oral history interviewees who spent his entire childhood growing up on the lock construction communities. He was about 2 years old when his parents moved from Broken Hill to the works at Blanchetown South Australia. This job was to take the growing family from there to Lock 9, followed by Lock 4 and then Lock 7.
Charlie has some great memories especially of Lock 7.
