“Four Corners” is Australia’s premier television current affairs program. It has been part of the national story since August 1961, exposing scandals, triggering inquiries, firing debate, confronting taboos and interpreting fads, trends and sub-cultures. Its consistently high standards of journalism and film-making have earned international recognition and an array of Walkleys, Logies and other national awards. The program’s current team of reporters – Liz Jackson, Marian Wilkinson, Debbie Whitmont, Quentin McDermott, Sarah Ferguson, Matthew Carney and Andrew Fowler – maintain a proud tradition of investigative journalism and rigorous analysis. And commencing February 2011, we will have a new presenter, Kerry O’Brien, to host the program – as part of a new look for our 50th year (1961-2011).
