This paper gives an overview of the Queensland Speaks oral history project currently being undertaken at the University of Queensland. This paper argues the merit of leaving the Queensland Speaks project as an oral record rather than providing a transcription. I examine the current literature and argue the case for audio digital accessibility. The novel aspect of the project is the opportunity to interview both government ministers and the senior public servants who worked for them. The project concentrates on Queensland governance between 1965 and 1999.
