The two parcels I sent via courier, containing the DVCAM master tapes of the published archive, a set of the DVDs, the original revised script and copies of the signed interview releases, have arrived at the National Film & Sound Archive.

It’s taken a long time to reach this point, given that I thought the future of the entire archive was secure in the hands of the State Library of Queensland – even before publication at the end of 2005. A letter dated April 11 from Graham Shirley, Senior Curator, Moving Image, at the NFSA broke the logjam. I await the paperwork to formally conclude the handover of my donation.
