Griffith University: Integrity 20 is delighted to present Kerry O'Brien in conversation with Madonna King.
Kerry O'Brien has been speaking to Australia for over fifty years. His is the voice of every significant event in our recent history, of turmoils, upheavals, national and international crises and celebrations.
In a journey from the nuclear to the digital age and beyond, he has come face to face with the giants of his time - from Mandela to Thatcher, Obama, Bowie and Muhammad Ali. In Australia he has watched twelve prime ministers come and go and has called the powerful to account. Born days after the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, O'Brien is the quintessential post-war baby.
In this very special evening to mark the launch of his new memoir, Kerry reflects on the social and political upheavals he has witnessed, of lessons learned and lessons ignored, and the personalities who have made history all the while sharing some of his own story.
