Bit of a blast from my BackChat past recently when the Chaser boys asked me to do a segment on the Hamster Wheel. Now could an old media tart like me refuse? Didn’t think I would look 101 years old though… Here’s the clip. It’s only two minutes.
Penelope Bungles To Broome is now back in print and can be ordered from the Books link.
Hi, over a relatively long life in journalism, radio, and television I’ve been lucky enough to travel widely and had some fantastic experiences. Some are still happening…
In this website I’d like to share some of them, and showcase some of the books and articles that have been generated along the way. Journalists are generally rated in the public mind on the same level as used car salesmen, lawyers, politicians or other professionals of dubious reputation. But I’ve always been a happy traveller in journalism which – providing your liver holds out in that traditionally hard-drinking profession – gets you into all kinds of situations that you otherwise would have had a snowflakes chance in hell of experiencing. And talking of snowflakes, that includes Antarctica, as well as stints in Vietnam during the Indo China war, working in London for the BBC, and in Asia and North America for the ABC. But enough of that – the rake’s progress can be seen by accessing the Biography button.
I’ve also travelled widely in Australia as a not-so-grey nomad, and now a fully fledged grey nomad, in our 4WD Penelope towing our trusty camper, and have written four books on these travels. Like Clancy, there are times when ‘we don’t know where he are’. Well, for some weeks anyway. Outback camping is addictive.
