Former prime minister John Howard’s documentary on the life of his political hero Robert Menzies begins on the ABC this week, but for those who just can’t wait for the two-parter, there are more than a few options to get more Howard on Menzies in your life (yes that is the title). The Menzies Research Centre is hosting an “exclusive cinema preview” of the documentary at the State Library in Melbourne tonight, with a discussion and drinks with Howard himself to follow. At $50, it’s quite the price for something that will be on small screens in less than a week. Howard has filmed hours and hours of interviews with other former prime ministers and luminaries, and the uncut interviews are available to subscribers of The Australian here.
Howard hearts Menzies, and you can too — for $50
Former PM John Howard's documentary on Menzies is just a snippet of the hours and hours of footage that was recorded, now available to The Australian.
