PROFESSOR MANUEL ARONEY
Former member, National Ethnic Broadcasting Advisory Council and later, member of the SBS Board

There was some discussion, at times quite spirited discussion, as to the direction we were taking for the Australian nation, whether the promulgation of Ethnic Radio and Multicultural Television might not prove to be divisive.

CONTINUATION OF INTERVIEW AS TEXT

This was felt by at least one member of the Board. It was something I totally fought against because I was brought up in a strongly assimilated atmosphere in the 30s and 40s, so I couldn't see this. My philosophy was clear cut. We really had to have cultural pluralism in radio and television.
