All this in 60 minutes by Nicholas Lee( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hilarious inside story of life on the road as a 60 Minutes cameraman. For more than thirty years Nicholas Lee worked as a cameraman on 60 Minutes, Australia's most-respected and most-watched current affairs program, alongside Ray Martin, George Negus, Ian Leslie, Richard Carleton, Mike Munro, Jennifer Byrne, Liz Hayes and Tara Brown, among many others. All This in 60 Minutes is the revealing and often hilarious memoir of his time with the show - of the crazy days of unlimited expense accounts, unbelievably expensive hotels, the fun and fear on the road, the terrifying plane rides, and the refugee camps and war zones. It goes inside the IRA, Idi Amin's torture cells, Israeli terrorist interrogations, royal palaces and mud huts. It recounts unforgettable trips on B52s, ultra lights, mock helicopters and the Orient Express. And details late, crazy nights with weird food, strange alcoholic concoctions and drugs on rollercoasters, as well as the madness and difficulty of being on the road for up to eight weeks with three other people who sometimes don't get on. And of course it wouldn't be 60 Minutes without all the meeting and mixing with the famous and infamous - from presidents, rock stars, despots, kings and princes, to showgirls, pygmies and manic, charismatic gurus...All This in 60 Minutes is compelling, funny and utterly eye-opening

Quentin : not all superheroes wear capes by Quentin Kenihan( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When he was a kid, Quentin Kenihan loved Superman. Ironic, really. Quentin didn't need kryptonite to reveal his weakness - born with a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, his bones broke all on their own. When Quentin was seven, Mike Willesee made a documentary about him. Australians fell in love with his wit, and never-say-die attitude. Over the years he grew up before our eyes. But there was a dark side to his life. The true story was never told ...until now. A story of abandonment, drug addiction, dark days and thoughts of suicide. Battling through it all, Quentin's resilience is inspiring. Quentin is now determined to live life the best he can. Just turned 41, he is a filmmaker, stand-up comedian, radio host, actor and film critic; he's hung out with Angelina, accidentally ripped Jennifer Lopez's dress, talked sex with Jean-Claude Van Damme, appeared in "Mad Max" and interviewed Julia Gillard, all the while showing that living in a wheelchair doesn't mean staying still. This is an unforgettable, brutally honest, at times heartbreaking memoir. Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don't need capes, just the right attitude!

His exceptional career, his happy marriage to Dianne, and his lasting love-affair with the people of Australia.
