Ha,Naﬁonal Library, Edinburgh Such are the number at events organised to mark the Australian bi-centenary, that a list at them, published by the Britain-Australia
' Bicentennial Committee, lills a small booklet (obtainable lree (mm the National Library). It makes interesting reading, with events covering almost every aspect ol Australian lite, lrom the ‘Angry Penguin’ exhibition at the Hayward (subtitled Paintings in Melbourne in the Parties) to a talk entitled ‘The Australian Way ol Doing Business‘ by Bruce Gyngell, the tormidable Managing Director at TV-am who reversed the company's ailing lortunes living on, reportedly, a diet at health load and jogging.
The National Library's part in the celebrations is its major summer show, ‘Scotland and Australia’. The library has evolved a style at exhibition which is text-based rather than visual and the result is a show which is extensively and scrupulously researched, admirably lull ottacts and
intormation, but which is, lrankly, rather daunting. Case alter case is packed with so many books and so much documentary detail, it is enough to deter even the most determined
costumes and textiles.

' ...*t was ; '— ~' orer. However, since the exhibition is on tor tour months, it is presumably designed to be seen in small doses, and the only answer is to pop in every now and then and digest it slowly.
Certainly it rewards examination tor the details at the many lives documented are both poignant and extraordinary. The convicted Scot Frank McCallum was known as a ‘gentleman bushranger‘ on account at his courtesy, though this didn’t prevent him trom being re-convicted in Australia. He spent his time in prison translating the Bible into the language oi the Aborigines, but unfortunately came to a sticky end and was lound strangled in his cell.
It’s a proud boast ol the exhibition that Australia‘s lamous bush ballad, ‘Waltzing Matilda‘, was written by the son at a Scots grazier, Andrew Barton Paterson, and his varied career included being a war correspondent in the Boer War and editor at the Sydney Evening News. A glossary ot the terms in ‘Waltzing Matilda' is given and a ‘matilda‘, torthe record, is a sausage-shaped swag bag, tied at the ends like a Christmas cracker, and worn draped around the neck.
