Radio Redfern 1988 bicentenary protest coverage
January 26th 1988, Australia was celebrating 200 years of white occupation of Australia. Radio Skid Row in Sydney decided to mark the occasion by handing over its entire airtime to the Radio Redfern team. During the bicentenary protest several experienced Indigenous journalists were working and each was assigned a “white helper” from Skid Row who would carry spare cassettes and batteries for them and deliver the recorded interviews to a motor bike rider on designated corners. The National Film & Sound Archive inducted the bicentenary protest coverage by Radio Redfern into the NFSA’s prestigious Sounds of Australia registry. We are 40 in 2023, if you have information to share about Radio Skid Row’s history get in contact with us. Email Ellie on email@example.com.
