Co-axial cable between Sydney and Melbourne - Migrants are helping to bring a 25 Million Pound communications "wonder" into operation in Australia. It is a six tube coaxial cable, 2 inches wide and 606 miles long, between Sydney and Melbourne. The cable, which crosses rivers, creeks, gorges and mountains, will open up a new era in telephone, telegraph and television transmission in Australia. It will come into operation early next year. This project is the biggest single job ever tackled by Australia's post office. Busy on a dozer. Harry McCafferty from County Donegal, Ireland
