5 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ordinary family. Extraordinary story. The Castle is a sweeping saga that takes the harsh Australian bush, the rugged characters of the ANZAC legend, the spirit of Banjo Patterson and ignores them in favour of a greyhound racing, tow-truck driver who never meant to be a hero. Since it's theatrical release The Castle has become an iconic Australian comedy with phrases such as "How's the serenity?", "This is going straight to the pool room" and "Tell him he's dreaming" now a part of Australian cultural lingo

Menzies and Churchill at War( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using Robert Menzies' World War II diaries and remarkable 16 mm film, this dramatised documentary lifts the lid on a bitter behind-the-scenes battle between Winston Churchill and the Australian Prime Minister as the fate of Australia hangs in the balance. It follows Menzies to London during the dark months of 1941 as he takes on the British Prime Minister over the strategic direction of the war, telling the story of Menzies' political epiphany from his own point of view. The film introduces the controversial theory that Menzies became so alarmed by flaws in Churchill's leadership that he considered taking over himself. With Australia under threat of a Japanese attack, Menzies struggled to convince the autocratic British leader to send reinforcements to Singapore. The unequal struggle eventually cost Menzies his prime ministership, but out of it he developed a new vision for Australia and built a constituency of middle-class voters who swept him back to power

Williams label - known for riding boots, moleskins and oilskins - has become a hallmark of quality for bush dress. R.M. Williams recalls some of the memborable characters he encountered during his lean years travelling throughout the country with a swag.
