THis show pre-dated Da Ali G Show, and other fake interview/talk shows by several years. As most Australians were in on the joke, Gunston (aka Gary Mcdonald, an established actor) could get in first with interviews of overseas celebrities visiting Australia. Examples: Ray Charles - Gunston asked why he wore dark glasses. Frank Zappa. Gunston got him to do a duet on prime-time TV, with Gunston playing quite passable harmonica.
Eventually the joke wore thin, but was for a time refreshingly hilarious to see celebrities trying to be polite to a well respected talk-show host on prime time TV, who was also an obvious nutter.
