Deep in the archives we found a gem. Nothing to do with our science but instead a vintage Christmas video from the early 90s. So, on this Christmas Eve, we bring you a classic #ThrowbackThursday.
Grab a festive beverage and enjoy!
Rapping our achievements
What a treat! If you couldn’t hear all the fabulous rap lyrics, we’ve captured some highlights:
- our flu vaccine was on the cover of Time Magazine
- we made an exciting breakthrough in gene technology
- we helped map the Great Barrier Reef of Australia
Caught in the act
Di Elders features in video. She’s the one with the rockin’ fringe talking on the landline telephone. Di began working with us as a receptionist on a 17-week contract. And now, nearly 40 years later, she’s had the unfortunate pleasure of reliving the Christmas video.
But Di didn’t mind and, in fact, had some lovely words to say about working at CSIRO.
“There have been some big changes over my working life here – and it really is my whole working life. But, in general, it is a wonderful organisation to work for. I can’t begin to speak more highly of the way they look after their people and I am honoured to work for them,” Di said.
“You stay somewhere because of the people you work with. This would definitely have to be the strongest selling point of this organisation. There is so much respect within my immediate team, we work so closely together. If you’re not happy with the people you work with, it just isn’t going to work.”
We’re glad the video didn’t put Di off! Happy #ThrowbackThursday everyone.
