News.com spruiked last night’s interview Nine’s 60 Minutes had with Bob Hawke and Blanche d’Alpuget:

“The iconic Australian returned to the current affairs program with his wife Blanche d’Alpuget in a sequel to their controversial 1995 interview.

“The interview with Roger Woolley, who also conducted their joint chat more than 20 years ago, covered a ranged of topics.”

The interview wasn’t with Roger Woolley. He is a former Tasmanian Sheffield Shield cricketer. It was with Charles Wooley, the long-time Nine Network reporter on 60 Minutes and the Sunday program. — Glenn Dyer
