Tonight with Cathy Saunders - Series One, Episode 12

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1985

Merv Smith, Rob Campbell, Diamond Lil, and Mary Mountier are the guests on this 1980s chat show. Host Cathy Saunders talks to Smith about 20 years as Auckland’s number one radio host, before Smith takes over to interview Diamond Lil (aka female impersonator Marcus Craig), in a segment littered with innuendo. Campbell covers the contradictions of being a unionist on the BNZ board, and horse racing expert Mountier talks Kiwi thoroughbreds. Also appearing are Limbs Dance Company, Wellington band Hot Cafe, and 1985 Telequest winner Sharon Cunningham.

I think if you added up all the unionists, feminists and socialists in New Zealand you might just about have a working majority.
– Rob Campbell, on the suggestion that being a "socialist" had the same negative connotations as "unionist" or "feminist"
