  124. Look at this man, listen to this man. Paul Fenech is more than a breath of spring, he is like a huge cool change after decades of stifling hot air.

    Did you get the drum? He contacted ABC and they didn’t even answer his calls; this is the kind of thing which has been stifling and choking talented Australians for many years. Those who hold the revered position of broadcasters, telecaster, film producers etc. Have forgotten, if they ever knew it, that they are not the last word on theatre or what the public might enjoy or watch and learn from. I wish Paul Fenech all the success he so richly deserves.

    Those who hold the power in production, should learn from this and at least open a door to the possibility of work-shopping and encouraging other talented people.
