Crikey! Thanks for that JennieG - I'd clean forgotten it was Eureka time!
I tried searching for Peter O'Shaughnessy [1923-2013] reciting Raffaello Carboni's experiences, but sadly most of Peter's work from "The Restless Years" is missing from online.
(At least the music dramatisation was available for download from "Paul the Stockman's" blog, (referenced by Sandra a few posts back), and odd songs from the production, by Marian Henderson, are available on YT .....)
Here is Raymond Crooke singing Charles Thatcher's "Where's Your Licence", detailing the kind of harassment that led to the Eureka Stockade : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9pyVnWrpBY
I found these of Peter's, though :
"A Convict's Tour to Hell" by Frank - The Poet - MacNamara. (9+mins)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRbvs7yBT9I "Botany Bay" - 3 poem animations by Convicts by Jim Clark (sadly, very short ...)
Here is Jim Clark "interviewing" (talking over?!) Peter O'Shaughnessy (42+mins) on his achievements : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9XZDsUg1fg
