Good Campers: The History of Australian Conflict Reporting

Good Campers: The History of Australian Conflict Reporting

When the Chief of British Intelligence told Australia's First Official War Correspondent, CEW Bean in October 1914 that war reporters were a 'dying profession', Bean recorded in his diary that, on the contrary, he thought it was the beginning on a new era. Bean proved prescient. This talk examines how wars have been reported over time, censorship and the ANZAC legend. Dr Fay Anderson from Monash University reveals the challenges, fears, regrets, successes, and personal dangers experienced when reporting war.
