"Persons Of Interest uses the historical records of ASIO to good effect - showing how the agency's films, photographs and written files can offer new insights and information for historians seeking to understand Australia's response to the Cold War and rapid social change in the 1960s and 70s.  This is combined with interviews with participants, experts and former personnel.  The result is powerful and compelling viewing."
