Alistair Birch, On Location Reporter
Alistair will be in Malmö recording interviews with all 39 contestants in their own language – filing interviews in all 26 different languages to be featured on SBS Radio language programs.
He has been bringing Eurovision to Australia for longer than he cares to remember.
At the Athens 2006 contest he scored an exclusive interview with Jane Comerford, the Australian lead singer of the German country-western band Texas Lightning.
In 2009 Alistair made headlines again in Moscow by getting Alexander Rybak to admit he wasn’t the best singer right in the Song Contest - right after Alexander had just won the Eurovision for Norway.
Last year Alistair discovered Melanie the Wind Machine Operator for Australia, interviewing her first for SBS German and then helping arrange the interview in English for SBS TV which became the most popular web video of the 2012 season.
"I only speak three languages myself, so I rely on my colleagues at the SBS language desks back in Melbourne and Sydney to help write the questions. The challenge is to make the in-language interviews sound natural and interesting for the listeners back home."
His speciality is recording the secret music of the Eurovision – with almost forty talented artists gathered together there are is a lot of music performed over and beyond the actual contest entries and we will be bringing you the best of this on SBS Eurovision Radio.
