Event description

Description

*Ticket includes chef prepared two course meal, wine, tea, coffee.

Mike Willesee has been Australia’s most famous TV journalist for over 50 years. Son of a high-ranking politician in the Whitlam government, he was one of the first Australian correspondents to cover the Vietnam War. Back home Willesee found national fame reporting for This Day Tonight and Four Cornersand as host of A Current Affair, where his aggressive style of questioning drew high ratings and wielded huge political power. Away from TV, he was a media trailblazer, businessman, sex symbol and father of six.

Join us over dinner, & listen to his fascinating story, in a conversation style interview with another of Australia's respected journalists, Blanche Clark!

Willesee left the frontline of TV aged 50, after a live interview with gunmen on ACA secured the release of two children being held hostage. By then he had made a fortune pioneering FM radio in Australia. He later became a co-owner of the Sydney Swans and the operator of a successful thoroughbred racing stud. But Mike Willesee never stopped covering stories and seeking truth. His 1998 documentary, Signs From God, attracted 28 million viewers in the US. Since 2012 he has delivered his exclusives for Channel Seven’s Sunday Night.

Willesee is his long-awaited autobiography – the extraordinary tale of an epic life in, and behind, the news.
