Oral Histories

In 2000, the Group was awarded a grant from the Royal Australian Historical Society to commence an oral history record. The objective was to record the authentic story of BMC-Leyland Australia to balance the press reports of the time and to get a greater insight as to the reason for the plant closure. An oral account of experiences and memories was obtained from a cross section of staff who worked in key areas such as finance, product planning, marketing, engineering etc. The recordings were made on digital audio tape and interviews were conducted by qualified historians Jennifer Cornwall and Deborah Stomps between 2001 and 2003. The recordings are available from the State Library of New South Wales. The project was overseen by Norm Prescott with assistance from Sarah Szacavay of the Institution of Engineers, Australia Heritage Committee.
