The first program features Craig McLachlan who stars in The Doctor Blake Mysteries tomorrow night.
He tells presenter Jane Hutcheon how he won the lead role of Dr Lucien Blake and discusses the years he’s spent trying to throw off the image from his time on the hit series Neighbours. He tells Jane that he’s proud of being 47 and Botox free!
Also on the program, a rare interview with Dr Jean Calder, the Queenslander who has spent almost three decades living and working with disabled Palestinian children in Gaza. The quietly spoken Dr Calder describes what it’s like to live in the Palestinian territory which was blockaded by Israel after hardline party Hamas won power in elections in 2006.
And when it comes to big, no-one does it better than internationally renowned sculptor Anish Kapoor. His work is currently on show at Sydney MCA, which needed ‘structural adjustment’ to accommodate Kapoor’s exhibition. Anish Kapoor is in conversation with Anne Maria Nicholson.
