In its final program for the year in 1973, the ABC’s nightly current affairs show, This Day Tonight, referred to as TDT, devoted itself to a review of Gough Whitlam’s first 12 months in government.
One of the items on TDT was Smacka Fitzgibbon singing The Adventures of Edward Gough Whitlam, a take-off of The Adventures of Barry McKenzie.
Note: I’m not absolutely sure what day this broadcast was shown but I believe it was Friday, December 14, 1973.
