"Newsfront is the story of the previously unsung newsreel cameramen, who raced to beat deadlines and dangers to capture on film, for a voracious audience of cinema goers, the historic moments that were shaping a young nation. These were the men who lived and worked in post-World War 2 Australia; a turbulent time with the fear of 'reds under the beds', the tragic Maitland floods and national pride on show at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. But their days were numbered. A new technology would eventually bring the world into the living room instantly - it was called television"--Container.
