Iconic Australian Inventions of our time

Presenter: Ian Thompson

We focus on some classic Australian inventions from the 19th century colonial era through to our present time, and the people and science behind these discoveries and inventions. Iconic inventions such as the Victa lawnmower, Vegemite, Mortein Fly Spray, the Ford 'Ute and the Hills Hoist are early trappings of our ordinary life and are day-to-day reminders of our own ingenuity in contributing to the way we live today.
