Ban the Bikini!

27 February 19


ABC Australia – 1961: Four Corners had a recurring ‘Voice of the People’ segment in which reporter Keith Smith Smith went out into the streets to ask regular Australians a particular question. Here he asks the denizens of Bondi whether they think the bikini should be banned.

At that time there were regulations about how skimpy the controversial bikini could be, and beach inspectors roved the sands to enforce the code!
