Henry Reynolds on Tasmania

I recently interviewed historian Henry Reynolds for ABC Radio National program Off Track, and it will air on 2nd December, 2012.

We all believe we have a strong connection to the land, but where does it come from? Historian Henry Reynolds has been exploring the connection Tasmanians have to their island home, in his new book on A History of Tasmania.

While Australia will always be associated with vast deserts fringed by blue waters, he’s found that the rugged, wooded Tasmanian environment has shaped their sense of kinship, goes further back than anyone initially thought.

Henry also has one of those great voices for radio, so I hope you enjoy it.

You can listen to it now on the Off Track website.
