Roger Cook was an Australian who came over to the UK and originally did a program on the radio called checkpoint which eventually became the cook report on TV. This was a consumer program with a bit of a difference. Forget Watchdog, Thats Life and anything else like that this was very aggressive TV journalism. Roger would be investigating something or someone, usually a very controversial subject, and was utterly fearless in the way he pursued his quarry. There was then the microphone stuck under the persons nose with a comment such as 'I am Roger Cook, Central Television, our viewers need some questions answered.' More often than not he usually got beaten up by the people he was trying to interview ..... in fact, that was probably the reason most people watched it !!
