The History of Newspapers in Western Australia

Join Anthony Alborn as he presents tales and technology from the time of the first Western Australian Newspapers to the very latest methods of accessing the news where TV, radio and the internet are available from one device.

Since the early 1800s, Western Australian newspapers have dramatically changed in their methods of production and the audiences they serve. Come along and discover the changes in production of these newspapers and how the audiences and platforms have evolved.
