Five Years After The Dismissal, Whitlam Speaks To Derryn Hinch

This is an interview Gough Whitlam gave to Derryn Hinch on Melbourne radio station 3AW on November 11, 1980.

It was five years to the day since Whitlam was dismissed. After leading the ALP to another election defeat in December 1977, Whitlam left Parliament in 1978.

Hinch began the interview by discussing reports of US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) involvement in the Dismissal but Whitlam preferred to focus on Sir John Kerr’s contact with Chief Justice Sir Garfield Barwick and an unnamed “intermediary” between Kerr and Fraser.

Whitlam was 64 years old at the time of the interview.

The interview includes talkback calls from listeners.
