The man who led AWA

Wednesday, 26 June, 2013

The ABC’s Hindsight program has broadcast a fascinating historical look at Ernest Fisk, the Briton who rose to head the Australian wireless company AWA during the 1930s and 1940s. Fisk said that wireless was “the greatest gift of science to Australia”, adding that its possibilities were “as great as the future of Australia itself”.

The program includes extracts from Ernest Fisk’s talks and publications, and excerpts from speeches and other documents written by the then Australian prime minister Billy Hughes.

You can listen to the program on the web site of the Hindsight program.
