Tonight | Tony Armstrong’s Extra-Ordinary Things on ABC and ABC iview

Tony Armstrong’s Extra-Ordinary Things on ABC – This week, Tony finds a couple of silk sashes that transport Pageant royalty back in time to 1968 the Grafton Jacaranda Queen Quest and sees history being made in this year’s Quest.

He learns how a photo of a jazz musician points to a ground-breaking dance club for Perth’s aboriginal community. He hears the harrowing story of how a trunk became the symbol of survival in the face of Darwin’s devastating Cyclone Tracy.

And rummaging through boxes of memorabilia, he learns why a tough music man is softened by a dogeared old dictionary.

And he finds out how one man’s passion to restore a pub brings a community back to an Outback ghost town.

After pedalling across the country, Tony finishes his journey with his heart and satchel full, just in time to unveil his exhibition of seemingly ordinary things from extraordinary everyday Aussies, at Canberra’s National Museum of Australia.
