Internet Radio Show: Innovations

Tune in Early (Live on 3/26/16 at 7:30PM)

Streaming From:  ABC Radio Australia - Sydney, NSW, AU

A showcase of Australian design, discoveries, invention, engineering and research skills...

The aircraft black box flight recorder, the first ice maker and the heart pacemaker... all Australian inventions.

Each week Desley Blanch highlights what's on the drawing boards of Australian inventors and what's just come off the production line.

From concept to conclusion, from an idea to industry, Desley follows the process and focuses on the ingenuity.

Desley Blanch

Desley has developed a niche as Radio Australia's science and technology specialist. This comes after a distinguished career as a television newsreader and magazine presenter. Desley doesn't pretend to be an expert in science, but she does bring to the program an inquiring mind and the view from "the layperson". Her most often asked question is: "How does this work?"

"I see my role as the link between the scientist or developer and ordinary people," says Desley. "I often don't understand the terms scientists use or the technology employed, so I see it as my job to demystify and find out."

Desley places an emphasis on process rather than event, and through that reflects the major themes in innovation in Australia.

When she's not researching the latest innovation, you can find Desley on one of the many golf courses around Melbourne, or at the theatre or the opera.
