The Legacies of Atomic Testing

Professor David Lowe features in a new Radio National Podcast: The Sands of Ooldea Collection. Professor Lowe’s contribution can be located in part 3 about Maralinga.

This series traces the history of Ooldea, a remote location on the edge of the Nullarbor in South Australia. We look at the Indigenous history of the Ooldea water soak and ceremonial site, the coming of the Transnational Railway, Daisy Bates, the impact on the Maralinga people of the British Nuclear Tests, and the handback of the lands to the Maralinga Tjarutja.

There will also be an online article published by ABC news coming out later in the month which includes bonus material from the interview.
