The one hour special, set to air next Tuesday night, was followed by a party attended by industry luminaries including Geoffrey Rush, Claudia Karvan, Bryan Brown and Rachel Ward.
The Australian reports the party was celebratory with ABC managing director Mark Scott heaping due praise.
David Stratton told guests about the early days when he paired with his then-producer on SBS’s Movie of the Week and Cinema Classics in 1983.
“She was pushy; I was set in my ways. It was an oil and water situation,” he recalled.
The special next week will include bloopers, interviews with filmmakers and actors, behind the scenes footage, and their final movie reviews of the year.
