Hear from Ian Crawford—Crawford Productions 
Ian Crawford joined Crawford Productions when he was twenty years old. His uncle was Hector Crawford, his mother was Hector’s sister, Dorothy Crawford. Once television began in Austr...alia, Ian became the director and producer of many Crawford programs; later he was an Executive Producer of all the company’s drama output. In 1980 he became the company’s Managing Director, which post he held until Hector and he sold their shares in the company in 1988. 
Ian’s speech spans the late 1930s to the late 1980s, and is particularly about Crawfords and the travails of the company ... the collapse of radio drama following the arrival of television, the company’s efforts to get drama onto TV, early TV series and serials, along with an inside look at such moguls as Sir Frank Packer, Kerry Packer, and Sir Reginald Ansett. 

His speech is entitled "Crawford Productions and the dramas of early television!"
