Mike Leigh: The Short And Curlies (1987)

"'The Short & Curlies' is a short film written and directed by Mike Leigh. It stars Alison Steadman, Wendy Nottingham, Sylvestra Le Touzel and David Thewlis. The short, 18 minute film, made after three weeks rehearsal, concerns a chatty hairdresser Betty (Alsion Steadman), her shy daughter, Charlene (Wendy Nottingham), and one of her customers, Joy (Sylvestra Le Touzel). Joy works in a chemist's shop and is chatted up by Clive (David Thewlis – in the first of his three Leigh roles). Romance ensues in a Thatcherite England, a great little watch for a sunny afternoon."

Rare Archival Footage of Marshall McLuhan

"This rare archival footage of McLuhan speaking to an ABC journalist on his visit to Australia was recorded on 19 June 1977 in Sydney.

ABC Archive notes: 'Canadian expert on electronic media, Marshall McLuhan, arrives in Australia to address a seminar on Australian radio. He advocates shortening of TV transmission time and better balance between TV, radio and press. McLuhan speaks about the effect of TV on children.'

From other sources we know that he was brought to Australia by Sydney radio station 2SM.

Sadly no record of the interviewer has been kept, though we think she has a New Zealand accent."
