Watershed Election

November 24, 2007 saw a watershed moment in Australian electoral history. John Howard's Liberal government was swept from office after 11 1/2 years in power by relative newcomer Kevin Rudd and the Australian Labor Party.

Astralinks provided 2 trucks for Sky News Australia for this monumental evening. One truck provided pool coverage of the key electorate of Wentworth in Sydney and the other was on location for Kevin Rudd's victory speech in Brisbane.
