Eighties Throwback

I couldn't believe my luck when I landed my first tv job on Network 7. The first incarnation of youth tv it was a cult show which went out live on a Sunday morning. This was my debut, I'd been working on a completely different story all week and on the Friday my boss, Charlie, said he'd changed his mind, he wanted me to do a fresh report and I had to find 100 pairs of identical twins and get them into the studio. I actually cried and my friend Lisa, who's also on the clip send a courier to Harrods to buy a soft toy to cheer me up!
