I was there, were you?
The Canberra Times has done a pretty good job in putting together a video - 25 minutes long.
They probably didn't track down the contractors (such as my brother) who actually built it - of course.
The article by Ian Warden is his usual rubbish.
But the video is better.
Old photos of the construction phase and the actual opening too.
I am in the crowd (somewhere).
