AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At sixteen, Rick Street's ambition is to become a journalist: he talks his way into becoming a country correspondent for the National Broadcasting Service, covering such mega-exciting events in his home town as the local netball championship, a bushfire along the Cattle Track and a whopper banana crop ... The big break comes when Rick is invited to Sydney during the holidays for work experience in the TV newsroom. That's when it all begins ... his meeting with Lisa, daughter of the State Premier; his involuntary involvement with a sinister new political party; and above all, his creation of the newest thing in news since the smoke signal: a TV program called The News They Didn't Use. Read on ...'
