Prime Minister Bob Hawke presents Simon Townsend with an award for the 1000th episode of Simon Townsend's Wonder World!.
With the Australian national anthem playing in the background, the prime minister delivers an off-the-cuff speech congratulating an obviously pleased, if slightly nervous looking, Townsend.
The production values in this clip are straightforward and unpretentious, which is in keeping with the show itself and also Hawke's public persona.
