The King’s new clothes
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.
