Williams Up Front 5 and 6 October 2005

Williams Up Front 5 and 6 October 2005

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 5 October - Driven Men

The movie about Kiwi speed king Burt Munro, "The World's Fastest Indian", opens here this month. Celebrated actor Anthony Hopkins plays the motorbike mad Southlander and describes the movie as 'the best film I've been in". High praise indeed for director Roger Donaldson.

Guest: Director Roger Donaldson joins us to talk about his film and his extraordinary life.

Thursday 6 October - The special votes are in - with no surprises

Prime Minister Helen Clark must gird her political loins and make a government out of some pretty disparate bedfellows.

How's she going to manage it, will there be tears before teatime and what kind of Opposition will a newly invigorated National make?

Guests: Tim Watkin and Deborah Hill-Cone join Larry for a roundtable discussion
