Wendy Borchers joined the ABC in 1967 as a transcription typist in the Talks Department, having moved to Sydney after three years as newsroom secretary at NBN3 in Newcastle. She very quickly rose to production assistant of a new radio program, AM, working with Allan Hogan, Paul Murphy, Richard Carleton and Perth correspondent, Ray Martin. Later she worked in TV News and as production secretary in the TV Drama Unit. However, she is best known for her expertise as a long-time film researcher in ABC Archives & Library, where she worked on flagship programs including This Day Tonight and Four Corners, among many others. Her ‘encyclopaedic’ knowledge of the ABC led to Wendy becoming co-author (with Tim Bowden) of Aunty’s Jubilee: Celebrating 50 Years of ABC, published in 2006. After retiring in 2010, Wendy moved to the mid north coast of NSW where she is active in community affairs, the local ABC Friends and ABC Alumni.
