The Grass is Greener - Derryn Hinch

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1991

Journalist, broadcaster and ex Victorian senator Derryn Hinch left school at 15 to became a cadet at The Taranaki Herald. In 1963 he moved to Australia. After time in New York he rose through the ranks to become a powerful media presence in Aussie print and radio, his brushes with controversy earning him the nickname "The Human Headline". This episode visits the bustling offices of self-produced current affairs show Hinch, then broadcast by Channel 7. Hinch speaks extensively about his "workaholic" tendencies, his fearless attitude to news stories and his deep love for his adopted home of Australia.

I like the William Randolph Hearst line when he says "news is something somebody doesn't want published, all the rest is unpaid advertising".
