'If we have a malaise, I think we can trace most of our industrial attitudes back to the English' - so says David Hill, a Barnardo's boy from Eastbourne, who manages the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. George Campbell holds a senior position in the metalworkers' union. He brings the Belfast waterfront into the living rooms of Australia as he castigates government and bosses.
The metalworkers were on strike when Alan Whicker met Tony Packard, a Â£10 Pom from Reading, whose multi-million pound motor franchise was threatened by the stoppage.
