One of Australia s favourite TV docs, Dr James Wright, known to many Australians as the Merry Medic takes us on a nostalgic journey through his life. From his Depression-era childhood in Wahroonga to his early years as a country doctor. Then onto the exciting media years, first appearing on The Mike Walsh Show on Channel 9, then on Midday with Ray and Midday with Kerri-Anne. Not to mention establishing a solid name for himself in radio on 2UE, as well as writing countless columns for The Sunday Telegraph, Woman s Day, Dolly and The Australian Women s Weekly.
