In conversation with Wendy Page – Producer, ABC’s Australian Story

Women in Media in conjunction with Curtin University is proud to present Wendy Page, ABC TV producer, ‘Australian Story’.

Wendy Page was 43 when she graduated from the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS) and joined The 7.30 Report as a researcher and eventually a producer.

Her work for Australian Story since 1996 has included many ground-breaking stories on justice issues, particularly in Western Australia.

Page won her first Walkley with Ian Harley in 2002 for the Australian Story program that brought John Button face-to-face with the family of the girl he had been wrongly convicted of murdering in 1963.

Page was central to one of the program’s most controversial stories in 2006; a three-part series highlighting flaws in the case against three young Perth men convicted over the death of Phillip Walsham.

The men’s convictions have since been quashed.

She won her second Walkley Award last year for a surprising and entertaining insight into Australia’s cricket culture through Barry “Nugget” Rees.
