One Plus One returns with a special 8-part series exploring the concept of leadership, hosted by Barrie Cassidy.
These are intimate half hour conversations with people from all walks of life who have shown what it takes to be a leader.
The show has also been allocated a primetime slot -something it did not enjoy under former host Jane Hutcheon.
In the first episode Barrie meets Charlie Magnuson, Captain of the Bawley Point Rural Fire Brigade, who steered his team through the recent fire season going above and beyond during the crisis.
Later in the year Kurt Fearnley takes over the hosting chair with in-depth conversations about excellence.
The One Plus One: Leadership series will provide a chance for viewers to get a deeper understanding of the challenges, risks and difficult decisions that these remarkable Australians have taken.
Joining Barrie for this series will be:
Charlie Magnuson – Bawley Point Rural Fire Brigade Captain
Justin Langer – Coach of the Australian Cricket Team
Sally Scales – Chair, APY Lands Executive Board Council
Dennis Richardson – Former Defence Secretary, DFAT Secretary, and Head of ASIO
Kate McClymont – Investigative Journalist
Plus more to be announced.
Barrie will be bringing his trademark no-fuss, direct and relaxed interview style to the series.
Thursday 9th April 9.15pm on ABC.
