1) Greg Ross on “One on One”, WTV, March 2014
One on One is WTV’s new version of Shadow Boxing, Station Manager Tibor Meszaros interviews a guest each week, with no script, rather a ‘Go with the Flow’ series of questions round a nominated topic. The interview turned into an irreverent look at the cost of living and education, mine work and mine safety and the demise of Australia’s car building industry.

3) Greg Ross, caught up in Work Cover quagmire
The West Australian Work Cover system has serious faults, leading to employers and employees being caught up in ludicrous delays. Add a mix of doctors less concerned with patient welfare and more concerned with ‘doing the right thing by the company / insurer’ and insurance companies, only interested in dragging legitimate claims out and you have a system emotionally and financially penalising working people. Most caught in the system are too scared to speak out, for fear of retribution.
4) The Town Hall Debate
During the 2013 WA State Elections, WTV Ch 44, held a public debate at the Perth Town Hall. Broadcast live, candidates had no prior knowledge of the questions they would be asked. The Liberal and National parties chose not to attend.

5) Friday 1st Feb turned into overload – it started with the West Australian Tunnel story and rapidly escalated to interviews with the three major commercial TV stations, all on a day when we’d had my granddaughters (Caitlin and Lila) for a sleep-over. But fiancee Ann thinks they really enjoyed watching granddad being interviewed and the excitement of TV stations.
