Building Australia : uncovering the hidden history of Australia's houses( Visual )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From grand designs to great houses, Building Australia uncovers the hidden history of the humble Australian house and how it has shaped the lives and culture of the greater population. Hosted by John Doyle, this unique six-part series takes a nostalgic walk through our most iconic houses, from yesteryear right through to the present day, charting the journey through observations and conversations with a range of experts, enthusiasts and home owners right around the country. Episode one looks at inner city living, the terrace, tracing the earliest development of the terrace from those that landed in the first fleet and initiated the tradition of the European style building. In episode two we see that pioneers adapted to the unfamiliar climate of the tropics through the evolution of one of Australia's most iconic houses - the Queenslander. The third episode looks at the homestead, a house unique to Australia and inextricably tied to the workplace, followed by the weekender, which evolved due to the introduction of paid holidays and the five day week. The Federation house tells the story of the optimism and confidence that powered the movement to make Australia an independent nation. And finally, there is the project house, which came about as a result of the housing crisis due to post-war immigration and the baby boom
Federation( Visual )

"In the late 1800s, Australia was a land divided. Its six colonies were separated by trade barriers, railway gauges, defence and immigraton policies, postal and telegraph routes, time zones and decades of mutual distrust. To some, the time was ripe for federal union, but the political will and passion for unification was found wanting. It would take a remarkable group of individuals and, ultimately, the collective will of the people to set Australia on a journey toward nationhood."--Container
The pig iron people by John Doyle( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set on a quiet suburban street with not quite enough parking for the residents, The Pig Iron People examines two generations and the way the politics of their time (and the politics of their carparking) have shaped them. Nick, a young man wanting to reinvent himself and find his voice as a writer, moves in to Liberal Street. It is 1996, the day of John Howard's first election victory. Looking for solitude, he ends up falling in love with April, a young actress, and striking up a bumpy but finally genuine relationship with his nosy, cantankerous old neighbours."--Provided by publisher

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After floundering in the doldrums of the Depression, the quest for federation is revived. Some people realize that creating a nation will require the determination of the people. But in creating a nation, they are also creating Australians and there are new demands for a fair go, for the right to vote and for a fairer, more egalitarian society
The nation( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For years federation had defeated all those who'd tried to achieve it, however, in 1897 the 'men with beards' try again. This is the story of bargains struck, drunken arguments, lost tempers, lost causes, constitutional crises and bad poetry - all written in the name of federation
The land( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Land is the first episode in a three-part series about the history of Australia's federation. In the winter of 1889, Sir Henry Parkes, the three-times premier of NSW, the grand patriarch with the big white beard, decides he will federate the colonies. But in these isolated regions separated by armies, train gauges, customs houses and with every capital setting its own time, it will take more than the grand vision of one elder statesman to create a nation. Though a constitution is written, the squabbling colonies find it impossible to agree. What is achieved in the first attempt is a national political map. Within these boundaries Australia's political existence would be wrestled into being -- but by the next generation
The hardness of wood : a thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy [Forestry] in the University of Canterbury by John Doyle( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation covers the development of hardness testing in general, including reference to the considerable work done in this field with metals. Hardness testing of wood is reviewed from the early 19th century to its culmination in the development of a number of standard methods now in use for testing hardness. The effects of factors such as density, structure and environmental conditions are considered with reference to the literature. Wood is tested on three faces using wedges and the Janka test tool to determine the influence of sample orientation on hardness results. The effect of loading rate is investigated and comment is made on loading rates and penetration depths used in the different methods. Investigations into the hardness properties of rigid cellular polyurethane foams are also reported. Evidence is submitted showing that woods should be considered as a range of materials - low density cellular and almost rigid-solid at the two extremes. Correlations for Wedge Hardness with other strength properties and density of timber in the air dry state are given for New Zealand timbers and some overseas timbers covering a density range from 140 to 1270 kg/m³. The Wedge test is shown to be capable of good prediction of many properties and is closely dependent on density. Correlations with green timbers were less good, but still show general agreement with trends in other strength properties. Results indicate an application for the use of sharp wedges as an alternative method of determining cleavage strength parallel to the grain. Tests on particle board and fibreboard are not encouraging. A 136° wedge appears a useful guide to hardness on the board face, especially for use with thinner board, but does not reliably detect density gradient across the edge of the board
