I only have a very vague recollection of her, but Binny Lum, who died in November, was clearly a high achiever both as a woman and being half Chinese. I suspect many young, and perhaps older, Australians do not know that Chinese have been in Australia almost as long as us whities.
Binny does look very glam, with what I hope is fake, but suspect is not, a fur stole. Glam or not, she interviewed some very important people, from international movie stars, to ballet dancers, to artists. I don't know where, which, what or how, but I recall she had a beautiful speaking voice.
Thanks to Andrew of Television AU who pointed me in the direction of The Age OB.
