In the beginning.
Updated: Jul 26, 2021
Can you imagine if we had access to general conversations, not interviews, but fluid, natural conversations to the real person, with the likes of some of history’s great characters and interesting people.
You don’t even have to go back all that far to realise we have lost some very special people in recent years.
Our wish list from the past would include the likes of Australians such as, Graham Kennedy, Bob Jane, Reg Grundy, Gough Whitlam, Robert Menzies, Kerry Packer, George Young, the list would go on and on. You don't have to like them all to appreciate it would make for an interesting conversation.
From the world, people like, Churchill and JFK. Think about all the musicians, the original movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen, the writers the business creators, the immigrants, the indigenous, those who lived in London during the WW2 bombings. The list goes on and on.
Each time we hear the news of another famous person passing, we are briefly reminded of their achievements, that moment in time in which they thrived and again, reminded that time marches forward no matter what. It works with relentless pace and in human nature we often get to a point of loss before we release what we will miss. I stop to worry about how will future generations find out about these people, their stories, their roles. Being exposed to the past can help you grow in the future.
They don’t have to be past prime ministers or great war leaders, there are plenty of interesting people in business and the arts that have years of interesting stories, experiences and maybe even advice under their belts.
We don’t want to leave a stone unturned, we want to capture a conversation with people that can live on, showing a natural reflection of who they were at that point in time. They could be 90 years old or 35 years old with another 40 years in front. It was who they were during that conversation that will leave a time stamp for others to find in years to come or allow them to offer a reflection of their real self. A place free of the media and fear of misrepresentation.
We would love to chat to people like Ray Marin, Bert Newton and Michael Gudinski. The masters of their crafts. Then people like remaining members of past governments, Dick Smith and Gerry Harvey, and sports people like Ron Barassi and Mal Meninga to mention a few. Those who pushed on and created a legacy. Especially those who did it without an biography of sorts. Those who work in interesting fields or created a life time of varying success.
The Australians that have left a footprint on our culture and those that still are making their own. We hope you will stick with us and enjoy the best we can manage to put down.
