15 minute episodes
This 15-minute informal magazine-style interview programme from Melbourne’s Channel HSV-7 was hosted by former BBC radio personality Eric Pearce and Mary Parker (the first woman to appear on Melbourne television) and followed the weeknight news (which the pair also presented) on Wednesdays at 7.15 pm.
British-born Mary also presented a 15-minute spot on Thursday evenings called Guest of the Week and later the 15-minute Shopping Guide in the same timeslot.
Eric Pearce was knighted in 1979 for services to the community. He died on 12 April 1997, aged 92.
