Episode number 4 of Series “Under southern skies”.
Judy West of the Australian National Library offers an insight into Joseph Banks’ “Florilegium” which captures one of the world’s finest natural history collections. Host Sue Henckel then travels to far north Queensland where botanic artist, Betty Hinton, is continuing the work of Banks’ artist, Sydney Parkinson, which was begun two centuries ago.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
