Late at night, various celebrity  musicians and dancers would arrive after work and jam until dawn.

Jackie Hickmott and Kathy Troutt were permitted to swim with dolphin at Sydney’s beautiful Taronga Zoo on Sydney Harbor.  The dolphin pool has since closed making 16mm film of this swim very unique today. (A better quality transfer from the footage may be possible).

Possibly the best interview on that deep dive.

A real effort would have been involved in getting Kathy into a hard hat dive suit.  Most women would not attempt it.  We’ve known Kathy to go camping and sleep in a tent pitched on snow.  A big deal in Australia.
