I had never heard the term ‘Getting off at Redfern’ until I watched a preview of Sex: An Unnatural History which starts on SBS tomorrow night.
Apparently it’s a metaphor.
And it has a lot to do with the fact the Redfern is a train station just before Central Station in Sydney.
There are a lot of lovely old folk in this documentary who admit that instead of using contraception during the 1950s and 1960s they were instead “Getting off at Redfern.”
You learn something everyday….
Hosted by Julia Zemiro, it premieres at 10pm Friday night (duh) on SBS ONE.
