9 News Melbourne presenter, Peter Hitchener, reveals the ups and downs of a life in television in the second video in our series "A Life in Television" (also known as "McKnight Tonight").
From working with iconic newsreaders Brian Henderson, Sir Eric Pearce and Brian Naylor to hosting game shows, you'll be surprised to learn what happened when the cameras were turned off.
Peter also talks about his personal pain during the Black Saturday Bushfires and dealing with the death of a friend while being live on air.
Full of archival vision, this is a nostalgic look back at the industry we love, from someone who has been part of it for almost 40 years. Special thanks to Twitter user @The_Scribbler_ for some of the archival vision used.
