A familiar figure on the Australian media landscape for 40 years, Peter Luck is one of Australia's most respected TV journalists. As well as presenting or producing most of Australia's major current affairs programs, including This Day Tonight, Four Corners, Sunday, Today Tonight and Inside Edition, Peter has created some of Australia's most ambitious and best loved television series.

Peter's television successes as producer/presenter of Bicentennial Minutes A Time to Remember, This Fabulous Century, The Australians, and Where Are They Now?, have made him something of an iconic figure in his home country. His Bicentennial Minutes series was unique in Australian TV history ..... 266 separate mini-documentaries shot on 350 locations which ran throughout 1988 on the Seven Network.

In 1995 Peter produced for the Nine Network the hugely succesful 50 Fantastic Years specials and Salute to Australians at War minutes to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. In 1996 he rejoined the Seven Network to help create and present Where Are They Now? which became one of the big successes of the 1996 television season. Peter has written ten books which have sold more than 300,000 copies - a big achievement in a country of only 20m. Among his best sellers have been This Fabulous Century and Australian Icons which was accompanied by a popular exhibition at Sydney's Hyde Park Barracks.

Luck was a member of the original This Day Tonight team in the 60s, which included Bill Peach, Gerald Stone and Mike Willesee. He helped set the pattern for the nightly current affairs shows which Australians now regard as part of their way of life. He has also been a reporter on ABC TV's Four Corners and for two years, was Executive Producer of Channel Nine's Sunday program. In 1972, he was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study advanced film production techniques in England, France, Sweden and the United States. His documentaries on Joern Utzon, designer of Sydney's Opera House, the drought and the Aboriginal murderer and author, Kevin Gilbert, were highly commended at film festivals, including Cannes.

Peter is best known, however, as a popular historian. In 1979, he was executive producer, co-writer and presenter of This Fabulous Century a 36-part television series, which told the story of Australia in the 20th century using archival film and interviews with 300 significant Australians. The series topped the ratings for nearly a year, and won a Logie in 1980. The series was re-made in 1999 and won the ratings again. Peter also produced and presented the opening night block-buster for Australia's multicultural television network, SBS. The program, Who Are We? traced the history of immigration in Australia. Peter has written ten books - his latest is 50 Years of Australian Television - an insider's view, published by New Holland in 2006.
