ABC Coverage of the Moon Landing

The late Mike Daley and I spent upwards of 18 hours in one of the old studios of the ABC in Forbes Street Sydney covering the moon landing using feed from Australia and the USA. We also used quite a bit of “support substances” as it was a very long day/night. Broadcasting non-stop we were utterly exhausted at the end. But I later found out the wonderful person who had just become my mother-in-law a few months earlier had been in Goroke in the highlands of PNG and found it even more surreal to hear me on Radio Australia! I certainly sounded surreal!
