Last Friday Social Club: The Azaria Chamberlain case
10:00am to 11:00am
Young adults, Adults, Seniors
The story of the disappearance of nine week old Azaria Chamberlain on 17 August 1980 at a campsite close to then Ayers Rock, now Uluru, caused a media frenzy unlike any other in Australia. The cast and location could have been the setting of a best selling novel however the reality is even more startling and graphic.
Retired print journalist and former academic, Philip Castle, was a journalist who covered many of the subsequent events to the final release and pardon of mother Lindy Chamberlain. While many in the media behaved disgracefully, he has been recorded as one of very few who remained objective and ethical in his reporting. Almost 40 years on, he will tell his understanding of these sad and tragic events best summed up in a later exclusive interview with Lindy Chamberlain in which she said "In all of this, people forget I lost my beautiful nine week old daughter Azaria".
