James Hardie - the video and audio

Matt Peacock's interview on today's Radio National Breakfast is here.

Gee it's worth a listen.

I learned that James Hardie even stole its name. It has no connection with the loved yachtsman, winemaker and republican Sir James Hardie.

It sought out older Australians as workers because it thought they would die before their asbestosis became apparent.

The video of Matt's Monday 7.30 Report story is here. Click on broadband or dial-up at the right of the screen.

Or click on this link. It should start the video immediately.
