Brian Edwards

Presenter

Brian Edwards began making his reputation in the late 60s as one of the country's toughest television interviewers. In 1971 an Edwards interview on current affairs show Gallery famously helped end an ongoing post office dispute. He went on to present a host of interview-based shows, and played a big hand in creating longrunning consumer rights show Fair Go.

There's an energy and excitement about it (live broadcasting) that you don't get when you pre-record, and a sense that anything can happen. And because, by definition, it's unedited, there's an implicit honesty about the live broadcast. What you see is really what you get. Brian Edwards on his preference for live broadcasting - Dominion Post, 6 July 2003
