Interview - Lisa Milner

Interview: Lisa Milner, Writer, Film Maker & Activist: 15th January 2004

Media Man Australia continues to examine the world of film and documentary making.

Via the Australian and Television Office, we received, and subsequently distributed the press release for the Lisa Milner's latest project, Fighting Films: A History of the WWF (Waterside Workers' Federation) Film Unit.

The project interested the MMA team greatly, due to much of broadcaster's Greg Tingle's, and his late father, "Tricky" Ricky Tingle (and the Black Mack's) involvement on the Sydney Waterfront, with such characters as "The Balmain Tiger", George Barnes and "Cowboy".

You will be taken on a journey of Australian history as you listen to this historic interview.
