Ted and Alison talk about taking action with the Glebe Society to preserve and improve Glebe. They talk about changes in the community since the early 1970s, the campaign for public land on the waterfront, and other challenges such as the third runway at Sydney airport. They also discuss the strengths of the Glebe Society.
