Mediaweek podcasts: Mark Llewellyn

Mediaweek editor James Manning sat down with Seven’s Spotlight executive producer Mark Llewellyn. The sometimes “controversial” TV producer spoke about the success the channel is having with the current Sunday night season of 7News Spotlight specials.

Llewellyn speaks about the Spotlight episode that featured Craig McLachlan. He reveals how he built a trusted relationship with McLachlan and we asked how the show got the outtakes from the ABC interviews with McLachlan’s accusers.
