What happened? How the Bendigo Advertiser unearths history
Journalist Tom O’Callaghan finds tales from the dead centre of Victoria and brings them back to life in the pages of the Bendigo Advertiser. He has delved into his hometown’s past to better understand the present. From mining magnates stinking the city out to spirits possessing people at seances, Tom looks for the strange stories that shed light on the hidden tales that help us understand this remarkable place called Bendigo.
Join him to learn more about ways the Addy retells this city’s past, and what these stories can tell us about the here-and-now.
