Notes

This album puts into permanent form one of the major broadcasts celebrating the ABC's 50th anniversary on July 1, 1982. The Big Broadcast is a montage of sounds from the past 50 years of Australia's broadcasting history.
It is presented by one of the ABC's best known news announcers; James Dibble. Naturally our broadcasting history intersects with that of the BBC and occasionally American broadcasting, and the record will reflect this with overseas material. The album is divided into 4 parts:1932-1939 which covers the pioneering years of the ABC; 1940-1945, the turmoil of the second world-war 1945-1960 post war development and reconstruction; and 1960-1982 a time of rock n' roll, advances in science and technology, and social and political change.
We hope you enjoy this selection of sounds from your past, as we celebrate 50 years of ABC broadcasting.
