On Saturday (7th October 2017) the Sydney Morning Herald published a death notice for the veteran Aust television and film scriptwriter Moya Wood:
As the NFSA website has acknowledged, Moya worked variously over many years in Australian film and television “as a writer, script editor, script supervisor, and script consultant, often uncredited. Her credits include Skippy (1966-69), The More Things Change … (1986), The Box (1974-77), A Country Practice (1981-93), Summerfield (1977), Chopper Squad (1977-79), and Spit McPhee (1988).”
In 2012 the NFSA posted online sections of a video interview with Moya recorded as part of the Australian Writers Foundation (AWF)/Foxtel Oral History Project. This project, initiated by people including Foxtel executive and AMOHG member Malcolm Smith, was in partnership with the AWF, a body established by the Australian Writers’ Guild. Readers can view a segment of Moya reflecting on the writing process at:
