Colin Broadley was one of those who dared to sail against the currents, as a DJ on pirate station Radio Hauraki. In 1964 he starred in Runaway, the first Kiwi feature in over a decade. Broadley played David Manning, a disaffected man alone, smouldering his way around NZ. Before departing broadcasting for other avenues, he did stints hosting early music show In the Groove, and playing a heavy in TV thriller The Alpha Plan.
Mr Broadley had the right kind of sensitive face for the part and quite a bit of acting talent ... generally he does a remarkably good job. 'FAJ', reviewing Runaway in The Listener, 6 November 1964
