Doug Anderson

alternate doug

Doug Anderson was posted at the Sydney Morning Herald for 47 years. Beginning his time there as a proof reader, in 1969, he soon embarked upon reviewing film and television as a columnist who struck a rapport with his dry sense of humour and non hierarchical reviews of programs which have uniformly shaped and influenced ¬†viewers across the nation. He is cited as saying ‘he never really liked television’ but notes that TV has the power to open viewers to other experiences and lifestyles and importantly those on the edges of society; encouraging understanding and better social interactions in people’s everyday lives.

He has written a short essay on television here.
