Hawke-Keating and Peacock-Hewson Interviewed by Richard Carleton on 60 Minutes

This is video of a 60 Minutes segment shown on Channel 9 on Sunday, March 18, 1990.

Carleton

Interviewer Richard Carleton talks first to Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke and Treasurer Paul Keating. This is followed by Liberal Opposition Leader Andrew Peacock and Shadow Treasurer John Hewson.

The interviews were broadcast six days before the 1990 federal election.

The election was won by Hawke, delivering a fourth term to the Labor government. In 1991, Keating resigned from the government, unsuccessfully challenged Hawke’s leadership, went to the backbench, but became ALP leader and PM in December 1991.

Following the election, Hewson became Liberal leader and Leader of the Opposition. Peacock left parliament in 1994.
