A Chalfont Profile
The Prime Minister of Australia talks with Lord Chalfont about his life and times.
Fifty-seven-year-old EDWARD GOUGH WHITLAM became Labour Prime Minister of Australia just one year ago. Six foot four inches tall, energetic, articulate, he has done more than any Australian Prime Minister since Sir Robert Menzies to make his country's presence felt in the world scene.
What is his background? Is his gossip-columnist wife, Margaret, an embarrassment to him or a help? Why does he want a new Australian National Anthem? Why has he sold his British car to buy a German one? Why is he not going to appoint any more Australian knights or peers? What does he think of Mr Heath and President Nixon? Gough Whitlam answers these and many other questions in the first in-depth interview shown oh British television since he became Australia's leader.
Tonight's programme also shows Gough Whitlam in action as Prime Minister and includes vivid film of his rise to power.
