Three young people stand talking outside a shops display window
A black and white image of three young people - two women and a man - standing outside a shop's display window. The two women are talking to each other. Both have long straight hair and are dressed in the miniskirts of the 1960s era. The man has long sideburns and is dressed in a dark coloured suit and tie. He is looking away from the women. One woman carries a houndstooth patterned bag and a bunch of white flowers. This image was shot while filming Three to Go: Michael 1969: Until now, Michael's life has followed a relatively straight and narrow path. A chance encounter with an actor involved in a film about guerrilla warfare leads him to question his safe job and conservative lifestyle. In this experimental drama, Michael is taken on an excursion into the world of the young radical, but is it where he belongs? Acclaimed director Peter Weir interweaves Michael's story with footage showing dramatised armed resistance in a Sydney under siege and segments from Youth Quake, a panel discussion about the youth revolution

Close up of a young girl feeding a lamb with a babys bottle
A black and white image of a young girl dressed in overalls with a large white bow in her hair, feeding a lamb with a baby's bottle. The girl is identified as Jane Grant. In the background two other lambs chew on grass. This image was shot while filming School in the Mailbox, 1946: Nominated for an Academy Award, this film from the 1940s looks at how Australians triumphed over distance, educating the children of the outback by correspondence. These students, living far from any school, are taught from a city school where there are no pupils, only teachers. In the days before satellites, the internet or photocopying machines, School in the Mailbox shows the extraordinary organisation and planning that was involved in delivering lessons to children by plane, train, buggy, even camel and then returned to the school for correction
