The programme was part of an oral history of Rottnest Island, a project undertaken by Murdoch's History Club and coordinated by Murdoch post-graduate student, Jan Gothard. The taped interviews, photographs and memorabilia collected by students have been stored in the Battye Library and in a special deposit in the Rottnest Museum.
