MEDIA ALERT: WILLIAMS UP FRONT

Wednesday & Thursday at 8.00pm,

SKY News Australia New Zealand, (SKY Channel 54)

Williams Up Front immediately precedes the SKY News screening of 3News at 8.30pm

Award winning broadcaster, Larry Williams, deals to current affairs in a straightforward and provocative manner. His "no spin" approach cuts through the rhetoric as he interviews the newsmakers and experts of the moment:

Wednesday 17 August - Tax

With only weeks before an election, the tax debate could be very bad news for Prime Minister Helen Clark and it could be the issue which jeopardises her chances of winning a third term. Can National deliver a king hit with tax? Or is it not fiscally possible. Tax expert, John Shewan, PriceWaterhouseCoopers Chairman debates the issue along with Tim Preston, Managing Director, ASB Securities
Guests: John Shewan, Chairman, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Tim Preston, Managing Director, ASB Securities

Thursday 18 August - Education

From early childhood to the vexed tertiary sector, education has rarely been out of the headlines this year. Minister Trevor Mallard and National's Bill English go head to head with Larry and debate the issues.
Guests: Minister for Education, Trevor Mallard and National's Spokesperson for Education, Bill English
