ABC’s Radio National has a new radio documentary series called The History Listen. They are preparing a feature on the history of Greek cinema in Australia, mainly the period of the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Peter Yiannoudes, John Tatoulis, and esteemed media academic Deb Verhoeven will be sharing their knowledge on the subject, while the documentary will also include interviews with contemporary Greek Australian filmmakers who were influenced by that era.
As cinemas were a huge part of social life in the 50s and 60s, particularly in Melbourne, and many people met and fell in love within them, the producers are reaching out to the wider Greek Australian community to include this perspective. The interviews will be in English.
If you or someone you know met their love at the movies contact ABC’s Earshot producer Miyuki Jokiranta on (03) 8646 1654, 0448 727 388 or email [email protected]
The History Listen is broadcast weekly on Tuesdays at 11.00 am, and repeated on Sundays at 1.30 pm.
