AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this insider portrait of Graham Kennedy, Mike McColl-Jones offers a never-before-seen side to the life of the King of Television. This lavishly illustrated memoir tells Kennedy's remarkable story, from his childhood in suburban Melbourne to the radio years, and his eventual dominance of television with programs such as In Melbourne Tonight, Blankety Blanks, Coast to Coast and Graham Kennedy's Funniest Home Videos, to his life in the country after he retired. Included are insight, gossip and stories from all of Kennedy's friends, including Bert Newton, Noeline Brown, Tony Sattler, Philip Brady, and the people who took care of him towards the end of his life. Written by Mike McColl-Jones, a Kennedy insider and one of the original writers on In Melbourne Tonight, Graham Kennedy Treasures will present a glimpse of the private Kennedy, and dispel some of the myths surrounding him. The book will feature at least 300 photographs, scripts, letters, reviews and the ephemera from a life lived in full.' (Publisher's blurb)
