Realigning Australia: Malcolm Fraser on our Dangerous Allies

Thursday 18th September / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Although elected by a landslide in 1975, Liberal PM Malcolm Fraser could not bring everyone with him – particularly those bitter about Whitlam’s dismissal, who grieved the loss of Labor’s radical vision for Australia.

But while governing, PM Fraser occasionally surprised his critics, implementing quiet , “small-l” liberal changes, many of which are still with us – if increasingly under threat.

Understorey’s Adrian Glamorgan sat down with  Malcolm Fraser to discuss the former PM’s own changing politics, his fresh approach to foreign policy and the push for a more secure and independent Australia.
