CAN­BERRA CON­FI­DEN­TIAL

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

Thurs­day, 8.30pm, ABC1

Annabel Crabb takes a break from din­ing with our fed­eral politi­cians ( Kitchen Cab­i­net) to delve into Can­berra’s seedy past ahead of the cap­i­tal’s cen­te­nary this month.

It isn’t, she dis­cov­ers, even in the 1930s, the world’s most bor­ing city. In­stead Crabb says there was al­ways scan­dal, se­crets and po­lit­i­cal skul­dug­gery. Crabb is shown a suit­case full of porno­graphic pho­tos and let­ters from a par­lia­men­tary sec­re­tary to a pros­ti­tute that re­fer to a Robert and a Harold. Crabb de­cides this is, of course, Robert Men­zies and Harold Holt.
