How to live well & finish well.
9 deep and meaningful lessons I learned from working in pre-school TV
Between 1976 and 1981 I had the time of my life working in two broadcast television stations: GTS-BKN in regional South Australia and (as it was then) ADS7 in Adelaide. Most of that time I presented children’s television programs.
I wrote. I produced. At GTS I even built the sets and arranged the lighting—and sold the advertising. See the pictures in the book.
I hasten to add, as I explain in the book, I was not famous. I was no more than a legend at my mother’s breakfast table. Our shows struggled to reach a rating of 2 and 3 when shows like M.A.S.H. were rating 35 and had ten times the child audience that we did.
Nevertheless I learned lots. This book (in 50 pages with photos) explains how presenting pre-school Television taught me 9 life lessons I still value today.
