The Australian television soap opera Neighbours, reached a milestone in 2015, celebrating 30 years of broadcast. Most famously, Kylie Minogue’s Charlene was a female apprentice mechanic – a nontraditional
portrayal of gender and class that has arguably not been seen on contemporary Australian television since.

This is a Speaker Connect event, presented in conjunction with the History Council of NSW as part of History Week.
