It's a Poor Sort of Memory That Only Works Backwards

Andrew Christopherson
Royal Flying Doctor Service Western Operations, Maddington, Australia



Royal Flying Doctor Service flight nurse since 1999 with service in Western Operations and Queensland Sections. Long term interest in Royal Flying Doctor Service audio visual and oral heritage issues. Delivered inaugural Kaye Melmeth Oration.



The history of Royal Flying Doctor Service also parallels the history of audio visual records. Consequently Royal Flying Doctor Service and Australian archives are a treasure trove of information regarding this iconic organisation.


The presentation includes a focus on the film documentary and fictional timeline, lessons learned and some experiences conducting field based historical research. Audio material includes the only known recording of Very Reverend John Flynn speaking.
