Hello, I'm Kim Beazley, Australia's

ambassador to the United States.

I'm also a former political

colleague of Bob Hawke. He was my

leader. It was a privilege to serve

in his Government, in a great

reforming Government which he led.

Tonight's movie has been about some Tonight's movie has been about some

interesting episodes, and important

episodes in his life. Here to talk

about them in person is Bob Hawke

himself. Bob Hawke, great to talk

to you. Thank you very much. Anyone

who watches that movie, anyone who

has seen real life with what has has seen real life with what has

happened to Kevin Rudd in the

recent past might be tempted to

think that politics is first and

foremost an utterly brutal business.

Is that how you perceive it now? No,

it's not. It is true that within

the whole gambit of politics there

can be brutality, which is not

surprising, because it is a

profession which is filled with

ambitious people who have visions

and hopes and beliefs in their

capacities. So the fact that

there's a bit of brutality at times

is in the really surprising. Kevin

Rudd - how do you think he'll be

viewed? Look, I think Kevin would

say on reflection - I hope he would

- that the problem was largely of - that the problem was largel

his own making, in that he didn't -

he really scrapped the Cabinet

system of Government. He tried to

run things all out of his office,

whether he had the kitchen Cabinet.

He didn't use the great talents of

his Ministers to have wide-ranging

Cabinet discussions about each

issue, so that you were able to see

OK, a proposal, what are the

complexities or difficulties that

may arise. None of that was done,

tapping into the wisdom and

experience of a very good

collection of Ministers. Kevin paid

the price for that. It meant that a the price for that. It meant

lot - some decisions were not

properly discussed, some of the

complexities weren't anticipated,

so there were problems. There was

also a lack of team spirit because

there wasn't a team. He'll never be

forgotten for the fact that he was

the first Prime Minister to make

the apology to the Stolen

Generation. He will always be

remembered for that. The question

that you ask or your character asks

in that movie - I'm sure you asked

it - was in the depths of your

anguish in your primship, you said

"Is it worth it?", That was in the

context of the family problem,

about my daughter. That was the

only point at which I reached, as

it were, that dnth of despair.

Let's go -- depth of despair. Let's

go back from that. You were elected

in 1983. You had a moment of

extraordinary triumph and

possibility. You were changing the

country rapidly. You were taking

people with you, you were

determined to take people with you,

reconciliation was a central core,

you were Mr 75% in the polls. What

were your recollections of, if you

like, that golden first dawn of

being Prime Minister. It was a

sense of exilleration. There's no

doubt about that. I had been

talking and thinking for many years

about what needed to be done. I was

- I came to the office with the

unique background of an academic

qualification, economics, and then

all those years as advocate for the

trade union movement I was across

the development of the Australian

economy, and its international

context. So I came to the position

with a very profound knowledge of

the fact that Australia was in deep

do-do. One of the things you did as

a key economic gesture was to float

the dollar. Yes. There's been great

debate over the years as to who was

the engineer of that manoeuvre.

There hasn't been debate, there's

been some rewriting of the history

in one corner. There was no doubt

that came from my office with

myself and Ross Garneau. You had

Paul Keating as Treasurer, not your

first choice, I think you wanted

Ralph Willis. What had happened, of

course, in his dying days as leader,

Bill Hayden had appointed Paul as

shadow Treasurer. If that hadn't

happened Ralph would have been my

first choice because I had known

Ralph for a long time, he'd been my

assistant research officer at the

ACTU. He was a qualified economist,

studied economics. He would have

been. Once Paul was appointed I was

happy about accepting that. He was

then keen on it, he had a lot to

learn, and we helped one another. I

certainly, in my office, helped him

a great deal. He was a quick

learner and became an excellent

Treasurer, as we know. Blanche

D'Alpuget in her latest book writes

about that relationship as being

one of support and intimacy, she

speaks of you hugging each other.

We had a constructive relationship,

both professionally, I had Paul and

his family over to the Lodge often.

At Kirribilli, I remember his son

was rolling down the slope there,

and broke his wrist. There was a

lot of social intercourse between

our families. My kids liked Paul

and his family. It was not until

later on that things got tenser. In

this early golden promise, that this early golden promise, th

period in your first term, there

was, as you mentioned the

shattering news delivered by Hazel

that Ros was desperately sick with

late stage heroin addiction. You

have spoken movingly about that in

your memoirs about how shattered

and depressed you were. Blanche

D'Alpuget writes now this that time

you were suicidal. It occurred to

me. It wasn't a thought with me for

a long time. In the depths, I

thought "Oh, my god", but that

passed. We were able to get

marvellous treatment for her, and

she responded tremendously, and was

a marvellous mother to two young

boys that that grew up into fine

young men. She made it. She made it.

Now, you were struggling though for

some time through this. It's been

suggested in Blanche D'Alpuget's

book that your depression was part

of the reason why the election was

called early in 1984, because those

around you felt one way to snap you

out of it was to throw you into a

campaign, an area you performed

strongly. No, it was not like that.

Really, it was sensible to have the

election then. It was not the real

Bob Hawke in that election campaign,

it was not only the misery I felt

in respect to my daughter, but also

on the very opening day of the

campaign I smashed my eye in that

infamous awful cricket shot that

didn't come off. My glasses smashed

into my eye, if they had gone in

another fraction I would have lost

the sight of my eye. I was

literally in agony every day of the

campaign, I had a combination of

physical agony and emotional

despair, it wasn't the real Bob

Hawke, but we still did pretty well.

It was public knowledge at the time,

you wanted it to be public

knowledge that, you gave up

drinking so you could be Prime

Minister, so you could convince

people you were the appropriate man

for that job. Not just so I could

convince them. It was deeper than

that. I knew that in the past some

of my behaviour, when I had too

much to drink, was often

abombinable. It was not on. It was

certainly not behaviour that could

be tolerated in an Australian Prime

Minister. I had so much commitment

to the task, and love of my country

that I was not going to go into

parliament and go over the Prime

Ministership and become Prime

Minister, and run the risk of

disgracing not just myself but my

country. It was a very deliberate

decision. In a sense, it's clearing

the decks of clarifying yourself in

some ways to offer yourself to the

people. You also did another thing,

which was not publicly known at the

time. That was you broke the ties

with Blanche D'Alpuget. Was that

difficult at the time? Yes, it was.

Did you regret that? Did you have

second thoughts about it? No.

Regret - a continuing unhappiness,

naturally associated with that.

Regret, no, in the sense that I

made a decision that I wanted to

become Prime Minister, and not just

to be Prime Minister, but to do the

things, some of which I have

already talked about. It was clear

that that would not have been

achievable in that time if I

divorceed and married again. That

was a decision I took, which was

very hurtful for Blanche D'Alpuget,

and hurtful to me in a different

sort of way. But, it was a

considered decision, and one which

while it hurt most of the time, she

understood the logic of what I was

about. Hazel, of course is a

consequence of that, she was beside

you as you began your Prime

Ministerial career. People talk a

lot about your ambition, about a

policitians ambition. For people

involved in the family, given all

the sacrifices involved in getting

there. How much was it also her

ambition and desire for many years

back to get that reward? Very much

a desire for a long time. It was

something we talked about. It was

an ambition she shared with me. There was another ambition out

there, of course, it was developing

with every passing month, that was

Paul Keating's ambition. The film

depictures the deep focus of that

desire for the job. When he first desire for the job. When he first

seriously made his move in 1988,

Graham Richardson reckoned that he

had maybe five votes in caucus.

Three years later though he ground

you down to the point where he

could take over. Yes. What were

your thoughts in that time? You

mentioned a name which gives much

of the answer. Richardson was

rusted-on supporter of mine and

would not support Paul. Then, after

the 1990 election I wouldn't give

him the portfolio he wanted, he

switched. So that brought all the

NSW right, that changed the whole

landscape. People watching this

might be stunned, maybe they

wouldn't be stunned. How much these

momentous matters of State turn on

what can be the very private what can be the very private

ambitions and desires, a sense of

being thwarted by individuals who

sit in key positions. Is it really

like that? When you are talking

about Graham Richardson, you are

talking about a very strong

individual who had significant

influence on the right, but the

simple fact is that if I'd given

Graham what he wanted in 1990, I

would have kept the Prime

Ministership. It's as simple as

that. As I said to Paul at my 80th

birthday "Thanks, mate, for doing

what you did and thanks to Richo

for being his machine manager". As

I said, if I stayed on as Prime

Minister, I wouldn't have been able

to marry Blanche D'Alpuget when I

did. So I thanked them. I don't

make any apology for the fact that

in the development of time, I did

fall out of love with her, and in

love with someone else. What people

will remember is the love story.

Helping a mate fix a leak...

of the beer economy.

The period after the 1990 election,

where Paul Keating's ambitions were

totally unsheathed and put it in

comparison with John Howard and

Peter Costello, was John Howard

better served by his deputy than

you were; was his party better

served because there wasn't, at the

end, the killer instinct, the

desire to drag down a sitting

leader? Obviously in the case of

leader? Obviously in the case of

Paul and myself, the intensity of

Paul's desire in the latter stages

had to be in some senses a negative

and, of course, I can point to one

particular aspect. I was in that

period after the '90 election, we

were engaged still in very

significant reform. In fact, Ros

Garneau was referred to the March

1991 reform, referred to them as

some of the greatest reforms ever. some of the greatest reforms ever.

They were very significant. Another

part of what I was about was part of what I was about was

reforming the 'ght-State

relationship. -- common wealth-

State relationship. Paul used that

as a struggle against me, depicting

that we'd give taxing powers to the

State and diminishing powers of the

commonwealth to run the economic

affairs of the summation, it was

rough, not accurate. He did that.

That was a weakening influence on

the capacity to deliver the best

possible Government. That didn't

occur to such an extent in the

Howard-Costello embroglio. Of

course, Costello simply didn't have

- I won't go to the anatomical

description of what he was lacking.

I'll say he didn't have the guts to

go on as Paul did. Did that make

him a better servant of his party

than Paul was to Labor? I think

that Paul was entitled to put his

case. Obviously he was entitled to

hut his case as I put my case

against Hayden. I think in the case

of Costello, I think he should have

played his hand stronger than he

did. You were in a very small club,

former Labor Prime Ministers, it

just got a bit larger with Kevin just got a bit larger with Kevin

Rudd joining it. Do you meet up k Rudd joining it. Do you meet Rudd joining it. Do you meet up k

Paul Keating, does any of that...

Paul and I have a civil

relationship. We are not mates, we

don't pretend to be mates. We have

a civil relationship. He's been to

my place to dinner, which Costello

never had that pleasure with Howard,

as I understand. We move in

different circles. Your time in

office coincided with some of the

gigantic figures of the 20th

century, Ronald Reagan was

President of the United States,

Margaret Thatcher was ruling

Britainia. The Queen herself was at

the height of her power. And there

was Nelson Mandela. And there was

was Nelson Mandela. And there was

Nelson Mandela, I want to ask you

about him. Who is Nelson mandela to

you. In my judgment, the greatest

figure I met, one of the giants of

the 20th century. A man

incarcerated for 27 years, and

incarcerated from a position where

incarcerated from a position where

he was an awningly capable lawyer -

- an outstandingly capable lawyer,

and he was locked away for 27 years,

and he came out of that with

charity, compassion and commitment

to pursue the intimacy of his

country at his core, and that

commitment to advance the interest

of his new and Liberated company

meant holding out the hand of Kopp

ration to those who had been his

Torr -- Kopp ration to those who

had been his Torr meantors and

captors. I want to ask ner question

about your life and times, a

delicate question. That is Hazel.

We know she's in the late stages of Alzheimer's. Your grand-daughter

says she no longer knows what she says she no longer knows what

doesn't know. How do you remember

her? How do you think, as a public

figure in Australia for many years,

we should remember her. Obviously I

loved Hazel. Over time I fell out

of love with Hazel. People want to

criticise me for that, well they

are free to. That is a fact. I fell are free to. That is a fact. I fell

out of love and into love with

Blanche D'Alpuget. I remember the

times of family creation, and when

she was, for much of the time both

father and mother because I was

deeply immersed in my career as

adcrow Kate and research officer of

the ACU, -- advocate, and research

officer of the ACU, she looked

after the family, and then I was

Prime Minister. She looked after

the family in a way that I

respecteded and will always thank

her for. I think as a Prime

Minister's wife, she carved out

certain areas of interest. In

particular, education, she was

Friday in those areas. --

interested in those areas, and

others. She was well liked, I think,

because she was nothing pompous because she was nothing pompous

about her. She related easily to

people. So I remember Hazel with

respect and gratitude. But I don't

make any apology for the fact that

in the development of time, you

know, I did fall out of love with

her, and in love with someone else.

I don't think that's something one

has to apologise for. As I say, I

remember her with respect, and

gratitude. Were you able to

reconcile with her in these last

years. When she was living next to

my daughter Sue, I'd often see her

when I went around there. How about

your - you spoke of Ros, Steven

your son was actively hostile to

you for many years are are you

reconciled. Yes, our relationship

with the kids is marvellous. I pay

an enormous tribute to my wife

Blanche D'Alpuget. When we married,

there was an undisguised hostility

on the part of my children. I guess

understandable. They didn't really understandable. T ey didn't really

know Blanche D'Alpuget. They have

got know her. She has extended love

to them. In an unqualifyed way.

They responded. Occasionally

there's been a little bit of an

issue with Ros, but essentially

there's been love generated from

Blanche and there's been a positive

response. It gives me great joy. So

you have lived to the age where

these important vitally important

family strands which were family strands wh ch were family strands which were so split

us underer at various times, are

you able to have the luxury of

being able to look back and say

that you are at peace. Well, when

you see six beautiful grandchildren

all in their different ways doing

very well, being good citizens,

with decent values, that makes you

happy. Your father, of course, was

hugely loving presence in your life.

He was a love beyond measure. He

was my best mate. We talked so much.

Unqualified love from him.

Inspiration now. It can be hard for

men, it happens rarely when men

have a strong relationship with

their own father that is positive.

One of the downsides is it sets a

high bar to meet yourself. You

obviously feel comfortable with...

I was nowhere near as good a father

as my father was to me. I hope that

in the latter years, in many ways,

with love and financial assistance,

and so on, these - all these sorts

of things, advice, I hope I have

been able to, you know, fill

perhaps some voids that I left when

I was more totally absorbed with

other matters. He's very different

with women, from how he is with men.

He really is a sort of girlie man.

He'll sit down and talk about

shopping and clothes and all this. and spicy tomato sauce. shopping and clothes and all this.

We have just watched the tellie

movie of it. Looking at it, of

course, that bombs part of the

public's assessment of who you are,

-- that becomes part of the

public's assessment of who you are,

and they imagine they have an

intimate look at your life. Were

you happy with that portrayal. Are

you happy with that portrayal. It's

a drama. By definition, when you

are making a dramatic film, it's

difficult to tell the story of the

fight against apartheid, economic

reform, lifting the retention age

of kids in schools, doubling it.

All these things I then, with my

colleagues, to change this country

for the better. That isn't itself

the drama. All you get about most

of that is a rapid 45 second scroll

at the end of the film. So, it's

not getting the complete picture. I

am not complaining. There's one, if

I may say so, there's one shot I may say so, there's one shot in

the film where I think they have

taken licence too far, and you

recall where Kim comes to see me

and said that - it is said that

Hazel wants me to go up and have me

charging up to the room and

shouting at her, waking her up.

That was not the way I behaved.

That did me considerably less than

justice. You have a drink now, are

you the loath some drunk that you

were described as? She's got me

under control. Blanche D'Alpuget,

you have gone through an enormous

amount to sit next to this man. Was

it worth it for you? Absolutely.

Absolutely. Yes. I mean, you were -

I think possibly the unique

position of being a woman who was

left not for another woman, but

essentially for a job. So that he

could put out a shingle as a

politician, in a sense. What was

that like for you at that time in

your relationship? It was

enormously hurtful, and then one

goes from hurt to fury, and as I

wrote and as you have depicted, I

actually wanted to kill him for a

whim. I quite seriously wanted to

kill him. -- for a whim. I quite

seriously wanted to kill him. Had

you thought about options. Yes, I

was a novelist, you can think of

these things, you thing of

scenarios. How were you going to do

it? I was going to join a pistol

club to get a cover, and get good

at shooting. Then - that was step

one, step 2, and I would have

organised step 3. Why didn't you? I

had a good long look at myself. I

really did love him. Love forgives.

You have also written at one stage

you thought about knifeing him with

a kitchen knife, but you were

afraid if you got close enough, you

loved him too much, and you would

just want to be held by him. This

was an enormously conflicted state

of affairs. Indeed, indeed. The

true thing was that I actually

forgave him. I did understand what

he was doing. I did think he should

be Prime Minister. I thought it was

more important - that was much more

important than our relationship. I

regarded it as completely over at

that time. I never thought that I

would continue to see him or have

anything to do with him. The first

thing though that you did, or

almost the first thing was to write

about him as a means to come to

terms with that. Yes. You wrote a

tremendously successful biograry of

him. When I was a young woman, a

writer said to me "It if you have a

terrible -- if you have a terrible

problem and you need to get it out

of your system, write it", I

thought "This is how I'm going to

get him out of my system". By the

time I finished the first biography,

he was out of my system. You wrote

about him again, what are you

getting out of your system this

time? This time I was asked by the

publishers if I'd do an addition to

the original book. I first said

"No", then I thought "His 80th

birthday is coming up, I'll do it

as sort of a gift for his 80th

birthday". Then there was so much

that it became a second whole book.

That is the book that has just been

published. One person that wouldn't

be interviewed was Paul Keating. He

wouldn't, but he spent an hour on

the phone explaining to me why. the phone explaining to me why. I

have to say right now, I have

always liked Paul Keating. I liked

him from the moment I set eyes on

him. He's a funny guy. He's very

different with women from how he is

with men. He really is a sort of

girlie man. He'll sit down and talk

about shopping and clothes. He'd

appreciate you saying that. Well, I

think he would. He loves

architecture, and beauty, and the

decorative arts, and so on. He has

an enormous charm for a woman, in

that regard. I have always liked -

I don't know him well. I have

always liked him anyway. He said to

me "Look, it's too painful. It was

all too painful", for him to want

to talk about it. I was sorry,

because I think he would have had a

lot to say, and when you don't -

when somebody doesn't come out and

say it on their own behalf, well,

there aren't many people who are

going to speak for them. Again it

goes back to a sense, and he uses

the word "it's so painful", to the

brultality of the pain. It lifts --

brutality of the pain. It lifts

people up, it allows things to be

done, but has a painful dark side

to the people that are drawn into

the more, if you like, of politics.

In Paul's case there was a great

deal of main associated with his

family, specifically with his

marriage. As we now know, from

other books that have been

published, his marriage which had

been wonderful and a source of huge

joy to him and I guess to his wife

and children, when he achieved his and children, when he achieved his

life's ambition, it went pear

shaped. Whereas Bob's marriage,

which hadn't been good up until the

Lodge, went up and became much

better. These are the terrible

ironies, and as you say the culties of politics. You had lost of politics. You ad lost of politics. You had lost Bob, then

you had a phone call from Bob. It's

described, depicted in the film.

How was it when you heard from him?

Thrilling. Absolutely. Thrilling.

Yes. Because I had - I held no

animosity, I had years earlier
