ABC Doco on Janet Frame


This documentary on Janet Frame was broadcast this week on Australia's
ABC Hindsight programme,
and is currently available for download.

The programme presents a wide variety of views of Frame -
I know that Janet Frame herself was sometimes infuriated
by the exaggerated characterisation
of her as "on the margin" -
but there should be something there to interest a fan.

The interviews were done some time ago for a Radio France documentary and have apparently been re-edited for English language consumption.
In fact the re-edit seems to be a classic example of the ability of the media
to selectively edit interviews to suit any agenda.

I very much enjoyed listening to this Hindsight audio programme.
