Podcast: A typical working day at GTV9 1957

In the second podcast of the series, Terry describes a typical day for him, editing the early evening and late news for GTV9, starting at 9am and ending at 11pm.

The first newsreader Terry worked with was Tom Miller, and later Eric Pearce,in the early days the cameramen were Peter Hansford and Bill Beams and later Peter Purvis and Bob Lord.

In April 2011 I recorded this interview with my father, Terry Gallacher, for the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia’s Oral History program, it was meant as a record of his career and experiences in Australia, covering looking for work since his arrival in Melbourne in 1956 and including his time at GTV9 as Senior Film Editor and later at ABV2 as Supervising Film Editor.
