TIM MODISE CHATS (article first published : 2004-06-6)

If talk shows with charming, credible hosts and fascinating guests are right up your alley, make a note to watch the two Talk with Tim Carte Blanche programmes broadcast on M-Net on June 8 and 15, both at 20h00.

Tim Modise, the anchor of these two Carte Blanche specials, says these two shows are "about interesting people with interesting lives". In a talk show format, he interviews guests who are people that one would expect to see interviewed by Carte Blanche. The show takes a lighter entertaining look at established personalities, from politicians and entertainers to sports stars. Views exchanged will be fascinating, interesting and sometimes controversial.

Carte Blanche Executive Producer, George Mazarakis, says the show is an important milestone in the maturation of Carte Blanche, now in its 16th year of broadcast. "Talk with Tim is an exciting opportunity to express Tim's talent and the quality that has become synonymous with Carte Blanche."

The look and feel of the show is based on a 50's jazzed up Sophiatown theme. Mazarakis says "the Carte Blanche signature tune has been re-arranged to set a more entertaining tone. Tim has been styled as an "Amagent" or "Swanker" and his dress code is intended to break the mould of a serious political thinker. Tim has a lot more to offer on an entertainment level than is generally known and this is a marvellous opportunity to explore his profile as an interviewer and show his versatility."

The signature tune is an adaptation of the original Carte Blanche signature tune composed by David Pollecut and re-arranged by Ron Brettell to include sounds reminiscent of Sophiatown in the 50's.

In the first show Tim interviews the controversial "People's Poet" Mzwakhe Mbule, veteran politician Helen Suzman and South Africa's funniest comedian Barry Hilton.
