Burra Charter video
I had a part in making that video, which was originally distributed on VHS video cassettes, before YouTube was a thing. My first involvement was in 1993 when I drafted a pitch that Australia ICOMOS used to raise funds for the project.
It took a few years to get going. In 1999 ICOMOS engaged me to help again. I advised on script development, focussing on communicating useful messages about conservation. I also appeared in two of the segments—do as much as necessary, but as little as possible (Newstead North shearing shed, near Inverell), and listen to the community, appreciate cultural differences (Musgrave Park, South Brisbane).
