Robyn Annear is the author of five books of history, including Bearbrass: Imagining Early Melbourne, Nothing but Gold: The Diggers of 1852, A City Lost and Found, The Man Who Lost Himself, and Fly a Rebel Flag.
You should check out Robyn’s marvellous podcast, Nothing on TV, which, she says, “ransacks Trove Newspapers, the National Library of Australia’s online repository of digitised historical newsprint, to present stories from an era when there was – literally – nothing on TV.”
