CLIVE JAMES: THE KID FROM KOG­A­RAH

ABC1, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

This hour with Clive James is a gift from the con­sum­mate nar­ra­tor and racon­teur whose time is run­ning out. Kerry O’Brien’s deft ques­tion­ing and his use of James’ own writ­ing show­cases the in­tel­lect, wit, in­ci­sive­ness, frank­ness and flaws of a man fac­ing a ter­mi­nal dis­ease dou­ble- whammy. Ill­ness has rav­aged the body of the 73- year- old writer, poet, lin­guist, TV critic, tele­vi­sion host and so­cial com­men­ta­tor, but he says it has also given him new fo­cus.
