Exhibitions, Lawrence of Arabia and the Light Horse, Our exhibition, Lawrence of Arabia and the Light Horse

Well, the exhibition is now open and my feet have barely hit the ground since. When things slow down I'll post some images and information about the opening, but currently I am still spending about 3-4 hours a day running tours as the exhibition seems pretty popular so far. Don't panic! It is open until 25 May 2008.

As many of you will have read, Jeremy Wilson came out to the opening of the exhibition and presented a public talk on the Lawrence and taking of Akaba on 9 December in the Memorial's Telstra Theatre. This visit was sponsored very generously by the British High Commission in Canberra.  While he was here Jeremy also recorded a long interview with Phillip Adams on his Late Night Live show on the ABC's Radio National. This show went to air late on Wednesday night, 12 December 2008. It was replayed from 4-5 pm the following afternoon and was also available as a podcast on the ABC's website. (It looks like this podcast is now no longer available from the ABC. Updated by MMB 16 January 2008)
