Don Burke hires defamation lawyer

Former Burke’s Backyard presenter Don Burke has hired lawyers following articles published jointly by Fairfax Media and ABC.

7:30 will tonight feature interviews with former production staff.

Veteran lawyer Patrick George told Daily Mail Australia he was acting for Burke.

CTC Productions produced Burke’s Backyard from 1991 – 2004, after 4 years produced in house at Nine, as well as Backyard Blitz and Renovation Rescue.

Burke has denied all allegations in a statement to ABC, claiming a small number of ex-employees bore grudges against him.
