Paper Giants - part 1

Thoroughly enjoyed the first half of ABC's Paper Giants, the story of the birth of CLEO magazine.
Asher Keddie, as the mag's editor Ita Buttrose, is fabulous, as is Rob Thomas, who plays Kerry Packer. The biggest star? The fab '70s interiors and fashion, the two-part series' art direction and the addition of original archive footage of '70s-era Sydney.

Asher Keddie, as Ita Buttrose, in shot with a cool light fitting and blue bull.

In Kerry's office. Nice desk lamp.

Stylish ladies and cool orange lightshade and red Planet lamp.

More fab lighting in Kerry's office; noticing the orange theme (well, guess it was the 1970s - orange was embraced like it was going out of fashion)?

That orange plastic lightshade again and a green Planet lamp...nice industrial sparseness in the CLEO office.

Note the Planet lamp (yellow this time)? How much fun would the scene and set design have been on this film?!

Lovely lighting via two classic '70s ceramic-based  lamps. Ubiquitous mother-in-law's tongue pot plant (set designer has done their homework!).  Check out the space-age vacuum cleaner!

Lovely geometric wallpaper in the executive lift.
