Richard John Seddon - Premier

Television (Full Length) – 1973

I’ve never been one to be afraid of a new idea; even my enemies couldn’t accuse me of that.
– Richard Seddon (Tony Currie)
We have spoken about industrial arbitration. Let me make this quite clear. The time has come for it to be compulsory. In God’s own country, let there be an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work.
– Richard Seddon (Tony Currie)
I would rather have this country free from want and squalor and unemployed than the home of multi-millionaires.
– Richard Seddon (Tony Currie)
Seddon was easily the best historical documentary that we've made in this country. It was well written, directed and acted and also had the advantage that someone was willing to spend a lot of money on it ... let us hope that the success of Seddon will lead to other, equally ambitious documentaries about our past.
– Roger Hall, in a Listener review, 2 February 1974, page 36
