Stills from ABC-TV footage

All except one of these stills are from Australian Broadcasting Commission black and white news film.

Most appears to have been shot around 1967, though some scenes are from a 1969 report.

John Saxon obtained the tape from the ABC.

The identity of a few people is a bit uncertain – so any corrections would greatly appreciated.
