News & Current Affairs

With 58 news bureaux across Australia, 13 international offices and more than 80 years experience recording people, places and events, the ABC has been well placed to document the dramatic, the uplifting and the unbelievable events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries.

Award-winning news and current affairs programs such as ABC Radio's AM and PM and ABC TV's current affairs strands Four Corners and Foreign Correspondent, continue to populate the ABC News Collection with world-class sounds and images.

When added to the archival audio news coverage from the 1930s and news footage from the 1950s on, the ABC News Collection can offer a perspective which is more than just the headlines.
