Andrew Denton hs announced his intention to "get off tv" so he can dedicate more time to his personal life . Denton's Enough Rope program on the ABC is must-watch viewing for anyone interested in great journalism, interesting interview subjects and thought provoking commentary.
Denton always impressed his interview subjects with his deep level of research and ability to recall obscure facts without notes. Many 'opened up' to him on topics that were off limits to other media.
My favourite espisodes included his interviews with Bill Clinton, Steve Irwin, Michael Parkinson, James Blunt, Billy Connolly, Aussie Cyclists - Louise Yaxley and Alexis Rhodes (an amazing interview about one of Australia's worst sporting tragedies), Antonio Banderas, Guy Pearce, Dr Fiona Wood and Anthony La Paglia. The list goes on, of course.
The ABC has included all the videos online and I highly recommend viewing a few episodes or downloading the audio files before they're pulled offline.
Andrew --- thank you for so many great moments.
