In the 1950s of premier Robert Menzies, the approved sound of Australian English was more Westminster than Woolloomooloo. These were the last days of the so-called 'colonial cringe', before the assertion of Australia's place as an independent nation with an independent voice. But since the 1970s, 'Australian' has become a recognised and valued variety of the English language. Melvyn Bragg traces the linguistic trail from convicts to Crocodile Dundee and national self-confidence.
