Say it with Feeling
Gerald Stone has a long and distinguished career in Australian journalism. Amongst other things he was of the founding reporters on This Day Tonight, which shook up current affairs reporting in this country (not to mention the ABC itself), and also established 60 Minutes for the Nine Network in this country.
Say It With Feeling covers that period and more. Starting with Stone's arrival in Australia from the U.S., it covers his rise from a journalist with the Daily Mirror to one of the most senior executives in Australian television. It also covers his views on the difference between Australian and American culture.
A most interesting read.
