Ted Egan, an old bushy who lives in Alice Springs in the Centre of Australia. Since I left my Melbourne birthplace at age 16, I have been fascinated by Australian history, its unique people and the Australian way of life, in this, perhaps the most multi-cultural nation on Earth.
For the last 40 years I have been writing and recording songs, filming and writing about the Australian people who to me represent the real ethos of this country. I have just completed my 30th album of songs. I am "the presenter" of 13 x 1 hour documentary films titled This Land Australia, and I have written ten books. That represents a classy way to make a living. Fancy getting paid for it!
I have recently launched my latest project 'The Anzacs ',A unique history of the 'Great War' for all age groups, that combines poignant and personal stories with songs commemorating the courage and bravery of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers and nurses who served at Gallipoli, the Western Front and the Middle East, and their families who supported them from the home front.
The book contains 120 often rare photos and personal memorabilia, and a CD of 20 songs with commentary by original Anzac Jack Nicholson. The songs are a unique, poignant expression of the World War 1 experience and take us on a moving personal journey into the heart of the Anzac legend.
