Marcus Turner

Presenter, Director

Folk musician Marcus Turner spent three years as one of a trio of presenters on kids show Spot On, where he became known for his musical performances and comic sketches. After leaving the show in 1984 he worked as a director, including on documentaries for NHNZ and another kids classic, Play School. He also spent time in the UK as a fulltime folk musician. Turner passed away in early February 2016.

In 1980 a new presenter to join the team was armed with a guitar, and a ready stream of one-liners. Bob Parker describes Spot On presenter Marcus Turner, in the final episode of Spot On
