Summary
Bruce Guthrie survived tuberculosis, Melbournes gritty northern suburbs and a boss who twice tried to sack him in his first six months in newspapers. Then just as he claimed one of the industries most glittering prizes, he fell foul of Rupert Murdoch and his henchmen. What would any self-respecting Broadmeadows boy do? Sue them of course
Summary

The work includes several color and black and white photographs.
