Ain't that peculiar - 1965 BBC footage "News From Australia”

21 April 20

Surfing and wedge-tail eagles? Why not. This mixed-tape Pom newsreel was ferreted from the bowels of British Pathe’s historical collection by PLB’s archive detective Ian Lording.

Check out the colonials at the Australian Surfboard Championships at "Manley” in 1965. 

A very young Kevin ‘Head' Brennan and an equally young Wayne Lynch (identified as Peter Drouyn) share some tiny ones in the Juniors. 

Bob Cooper makes a cameo, probably judging, while Midget takes out the Seniors over Nat and McTavish, with Mr BBC doing the plummy commentary.
