Event description

Description

Michael Beatty did his first interview with guitar legend, Jimi Hendrix, for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and was promptly ‘exiled’ to a CBC radio station in the Eastern Arctic. After a period of learning Inuit and braving minus 40C temperatures, Michael returned to London to follow in the footsteps of his father, British screen royalty, Robert Beatty. What followed was an illustrious, and at times, hazardous career that saw him interview stars from Cary Grant to the Rolling Stones, tackle North Queensland television and crocs and take on the stories of the day and the stories no-one wanted on Willesee, Today Tonight and Good Morning Australia. Now working as the spokesperson for RSPCA Queensland, Michael has written a book on his career as a journalist called Off the Beatty Track and will be sharing his experiences and stories at Brisbane Libraries.

Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Michael to sign.
