War Widows Program – ABC1

Sunday night’s ABC1’s “Compass” program at 10.10 pm 24/4/2011 will feature interviews with some of the “forgotten” people who are not always thought about on ANZAC Day – war widows.  One of the women featured is Olwyn Green who tragically lost her husband in the Korean War.  I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Olwyn in 2004.  She has devoted much of her life to ensuring Australians don’t forget the so-called “forgotten war”.  She has interviewed many Korean War veterans and written a book about her husband – The Name’s Still Charlie

You can see my interview with Olwyn on my oral history Blog and you can also look at Olwyn’s Blog.
