The Whitlams meet the Sydney Symphony Orchestra was produced through a partnership between the Sydney Opera House and the NSW Department of Education (then the NSW Department of Education and Training). It consists of an interview (divided into eight video clips) with Tim Freedman from The Whitlams and conductor Ben Northey following the 2009 Education concert at the Sydney Opera House by the Sydney Sinfonia and The Whitlams. The program included arrangements of Tim’s songs by The Whitlams, Ben Northey, Peter Sculthorpe and others.
