Petra Bagust grew up in Christchurch, studied fine arts at Canterbury University and waited tables before being lured into regional TV station Cry TV. And so began a screen career during which she has hosted many of NZ’s most popular shows, starting out with mad-cap youth series Ice TV in 1996.

In this ScreenTalk, Bagust talks about:

  • Considering a TV career over a career as a painter
  • Her first experiences at regional station Cry TV
  • How she landed her initial audition for Ice TV, and what it was like working on the show
  • One of the golden rules of doing travel shows
  • Hosting big live shows like Christmas in the Park
  • Making What’s Really In Our Food
  • Her love of NZ design
