The following decade, Michael was a co-creator of the current affairs program Four Corners, and initial host in 1961, before enjoying a long and successful career with the BBC in London.
Though born in Sydney, Tony Charlton grew up in Perth where he was inspired by the deeds of his parents, with his mother being a very good opera singer who sang with the Perth and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras.
The following year he was headhunted by HSV Channel Seven, to then call the first televised VFL match the following year, before Nine made him an offer he couldn’t refuse in 1960, and on returning he was a producer, presenter and commentator for various sporting broadcasts for more than a decade, and later the ABC.
Tony Charlton retained the reverence for sport he had as a boy, and began his broadcasting career as an office boy at Melbourne’s commercial radio station 3AW in 1949, which was then a racing station, until the legendary broadcaster Norman Banks moved there from 3KZ and chose Tony to be his sidekick in the station’s first VFL football broadcast.
TVW Channel Seven veterans will remember Tony commentating and conducting interviews, not only for Seven in Perth, but also the Nine network during the 1962 Commonwealth and Empire Games at Perry Lakes Stadium, which were produced by Darcy Farrell.
