Good Day – The Judith Fyfe Celebrity Pot Roast Show

Television (Full Length) – 1979

The one-liners fly thick and fast in this celebrity 'pot roast' of reporter and presenter Judith Fyfe. The team at magazine show Good Day hand the reins to a group of Fyfe's TV colleagues and 'intimates' — including compère Michael McDonald, Fair Go presenter Brian Edwards, columnist Rosemary McLeod and actor Davina Whitehouse.

This roast became famous for another reason; it marked the TV debut of Ginette McDonald's iconic 'suburban chick' character Lynn of Tawa.
