Make-up artist Peggy Carter interviewed by Lorna Lesley.

In this clip Peggy talks about working on the seminal film Walkabout (Nicolas Roeg, UK-Australia, 1971).

She recalls a wild ride in 4WDs through the desert landscape under the inspiring leadership of British director Nicolas Roeg and an astounding debut performance from a teenage David Gulpilil.

Peggy was the make-up artist on some of Australia’s most renowned films of the late 1960s and 1970s including Age of Consent (Michael Powell, UK-Australia, 1969), Sunday Too Far Away (Ken Hannam, 1975), Caddie (Donald Crombie, 1976) and The Picture Show Man (John Power, 1977).
