Monash University’s historian Dr Tony Moore spoke on ABC radio recently, offering insight into Barry Humphries’ recollection of a prank on a Melbourne tram in 1952.

The “pranks” episode was aired nationally on popular ABC program, Conversations with Richard Fidler. It is also available online.

Dr Moore, the author of Death or Liberty: rebels and radicals transported to Australia, chats with Fidler about Humphries’ fascinating story, recalled to Terry Lane on radio, and other related artists.
