Posted on: Thu 28 Dec 2017

On December 28 1836 the first Governor, John Hindmarsh, read the proclamation of the new colony’s existence to the settlers at the Old Gum Tree in North Glenelg. Did you know the Adelaide 36ers get their name from Proclamation Day?

On this day in 1895 marks the first time people could pay to go see a movie! How far we’ve come. And if you’re into The Beatles, there’s a historical moment regarding their White Album.

Breakfast producer Nick Ward chats with host Tom Jordan about these moments in time.
