AUSTRALIA'S LAND OF TOMORROW

Australia, 1960 (MIFF 1961, Programme 44)

Director: F. McKay

The story of what is happening in the northern and central areas of Australia. It contrasts the stone-age nomad making fire and the blazing furnaces at Mount Isa; an aborigine digging yams and modern rice growing; hunting kangaroos for food and the Air Beef operations at Glenroy.
