Australia Talks Back 10 years old

Radio National program Australia Talks Back turned ten years old this week with a live broadcast
from the Brisbane Powerhouse on the topic “Talkback Radio: Threat to Democracy?”

Presenter Sandy McCutcheon posed the question of whether talkback radio is the voice of the people or a threat to democracy. Guests included Graeme Turner, Graham Young and Lee Burton. The topic of talkback radio was recently raised by outgoing NSW police commissioner Peter Ryan who was also featured on this week’s media report.
