This is an edited sound recording of an interview with Chris Arthur, a Tasmanian environmentalist, who describes being arrested and imprisoned in December 1982 after participating in a blockade of a site linked to a proposed project to dam the Franklin River in south-western Tasmania. He also talks about how he has gone from being a jailed activist to later becoming the Tasmanian Government ranger in charge of the national park area that includes the Franklin - without a dam. The recording was made in June 2008.
