A fantastic video that shows many photos of the horrific aftermath of the Cyclone. Is has a newsreader talking in the background discussing what had happened and the damages that have been done for Darwin.

This video is obviously of age and depicts the way society would have viewed the cyclone and its devastation within the current time of its happening (1974). Watch and analyse the reactions of those effected and the kind of strategies used at the time of Cyclone Tracy in preparation (if any) and the aftermath.
