Episode 8. The Adelaide man who inspired Australia's obsession with Big Things

Heaps Good History show

Summary: Australia's obsession with Big Things didn't start with Coffs Harbour's Big Banana, Woombye's Big Pineapple or Robertson's Big Potato. It started here in Adelaide with a giant Scotsman that still stands sentinel over one of the city's busiest intersections. Greg caught up with the man who kick-started that obsession, Adelaide artist Paul Kelly.  Thanks this week to Paul and Pam Kelly, Ian Backler and Dr Amy Clarke.
