Tracy Grimshaw’s interview with Reg Grundy will air tonight on A Current Affair.
Grundy, whose production company the Grundy Organisation was matched only by Crawford Productions in the 1960s – 1980s, now lives in the Bahamas with wife, actress Joy Chambers.
The man who started in television as a game show host saw his production company boom to producing such shows as Class of ’74, Class of ’75, The Restless Years, The Young Doctors, Prisoner, Glenview High, Sons and Daughters, Neighbours, Wheel of Fortuneand Sale of the Century. The interview will be a must-see for fans of nostalgic Aussie telly.
Such a part of the Australian cultural landscape, his name is even invoked as a nickname for underwear: Reg Grundies (did you ask him that, Tracy?)
The Grundy Organisation was later sold to Pearson PLC, which has since become known as FremantleMedia.
