Countdown: End of the Decade

Initial airdate: 1979
Initial broadcaster: ABC
Country of production: AU
Duration: 4 mins
Type: Interview

This interview was conducted on the set of Xanadu and Olivia is dressed in a white robe. The programme begins with a look-back at a 1971 interview. Olivia is asked if she'll be stale at the age of 30 or 35, Olivia replies in a shocked tone "Oh I hope not." They cut to today's interview in 1979 and Olivia commenting that she tries something new with every album. Clearly not stale at 31!

Olivia names the musical influences of the 70s and mentions black music, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles (who she predicts will be with us for the next 30 years) and the Bee Gees. She's asked what the 80s will bring for herself and mentions the release of Xanadu and more albums.
