Tribune was the Communist Party's newspaper and a major ASIO target. A significant amount of intelligence used by ASIO came from the pages of Tribune. The picnic put on by the newspaper for staff, family and friends was too. This has been shot by someone who did not raise suspicion while shooting and then ASIO managed to get hold of it. The children, the ladies races, Punch & Judy it's almost poignant. Look out for World Bantamweight Champion Jimmy Carruthers 20 seconds in. The picture quality is poor due to the incompetence of the National Archive of Australia which recommended to ASIO that because the film had no security value it could be sold for its silver content. It was filmed on VHS video (an amateur format) and then sold for silver and a rare insight into Australia's cultural life is a bare shadow of what it should be.
