The ABC Of: June 20

David Wenham meets Greig Pickhaver, who speaks openly about being unable to read and the enduring partnership of Roy and HG.

This week on The ABC Of, David Wenham goes fishing in the ABC Archival life of Greig Pickhaver, who for more than 40 years has defined and defiled the Australian character with his inimitable alter ego, HG Nelson.

As Greig admits, HG always asks the questions and Roy always gives the answers. In The ABC Of, we see Greig without the cloak of his character, speaking openly about his inability to read due to dyslexia and how that has uniquely fuelled his love of language. Greig lets us into the inner workings of his professional partnership with John Doyle, he speaks passionately about what it means to be and sound Australian and reminds us that every part of life is, at its essence, sport.

8pm Tuesday on ABC.
