Summary

This collection of 105 slides was assembled as an audiovisual presentation "Pedder" by Olegas Truchanas during the struggle to save Lake Pedder from inundation by a proposed hydro-electrical development wherein the small Lake Pedder was used as, and covered by an enlarged impoundement to store water for the greater Lake Gordon Hydro Scheme. The audiovisual was presented with two slides in separate projectors merging the changing images. Set to the music of Frederick Delius the audiovisual presentation travelled to most of the Australian States both before and after Olegas' accidental death in January 1972. Some of these images have been previously published in the books: The World of Olegas Truchanas, Max Angus 1975, and Lake Pedder, Bob Brown 1986, A Big Country ABC series 1988, and the film documentaries Spirit of Olegas ABC 1979, and Wildness Film Australia 2002.
