The King’s new clothes

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Guide -

CHAN­NEL 9, keen to cap­i­talise on a burst of pub­lic­ity about Gra­ham Kennedy (pic­tured), has sched­uled a re­peat of a spe­cial on the TV leg­end. To screen on Thurs­day at 9.45pm, Gra­ham Kennedy: The King of Tele­vi­sion, of­fers a unique in­sight into the man who pi­o­neered va­ri­ety here. The screen­ing fol­lows the launch of Gra­ham Kennedy Trea­sures: Friends Re­mem­ber the King, a book by Mike McColl Jones that prom­ises a ‘‘never-be­fore- seen side to the life of the King of Tele­vi­sion’’. The lav­ish book tells Kennedy’s story from child­hood in Mel­bourne to life in re­tire­ment.
