At Length
Fiona Forbes is a 30-minute talk series that includes fun & casual personality-driven conversation, and combines it with a candid panel commentary featuring distinct views on matters of interest to the community.

The show will include two integral segments – a feature interview and a roundtable discussion – and will introduce a short and fun signature Q&A piece 7 Questions that will wrap each episode.

The key word is TALK: no demos, no performances, no gimmicks. The show offers interesting and revealing personality profiles, along with honest opinions, ideas, banter and debate. The interview capitalizes on Fiona’s lighthearted conversational style as she engages with high-profile guests, while the roundtable allows Fiona and her always-changing group of notable panelists to delve into more issue-centric chat with a focus on headlines, trends and pop culture buzz.

Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Fiona Forbes.
