Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Vet­eran host Geral­dine Doogue, who was the face of Com­pass for 20 years, has passed the ba­ton on to Kumi Taguchi (pic­tured), but she still makes a spe­cial ap­pear­ance in th­ese in­spir­ing in­ter­view s on “mo e prophets”. Ben Rob -Smith, Aus­tralia’s most-awarded mem­ber f the De­fence Force, is the secon in­spir­ing sub­ject of this three-part series. As a re­cip­i­ent of the Vi Cross medal for brav y un­der fire and the 2013 Fa­ther of the Year – he has twin daugh­ters – th­ese days the ex-Army sol­dier still has a lot on his pla te. In a TV land­scape full of the va­pid and ma­te­ri­al­is­tic, it’s heart­en­ing to delve into his story, one of real sub­stance.
