Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg.
Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principle of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.
The life and Times of Rosalyn Thornton is another Golden Moment repeat program, and as you listen you will understand why we thought it was worthy of being presented to those who may have missed it the first time.
In this, the second and final part of the Life and Times of Rosalyn Thornton, Rosalyn continues the story of life after losing her husband to mesothelioma leaving her widowed with 3 young children and no welfare payments. Her story continues on sharing how she met her second husband Graham Thornton and, we learn of Graham’s involvement with the Flying Doctor Service.
Life moves on and Rosalyn shares a most fascinating tale of her life in live theatre where she undertook costume design and theatre design with both the Australian Ballet Company and then Channel 7.
In Rosalyn’s own words – she is an Aussie battler! You listen and make up your own mind.
