70 years of the ABC's history

Enjoy a look at the events surrounding the 70 years of the ABC's history - and more.

This project intends to provide a continually developing chronology of Australian history (from 1900 at this stage), which we hope will become a useful resource for visitors to this site.

The changing audio/visual samples are supported by the extensive collections of ABC Archives, which underpin our program making activities
