Insight is a current affairs television program, broadcast on the SBS network.

History[edit]

Insight started out as a national domestic current affairs program dealing primarily with Australian issues, while Dateline covered international ones.

It was hosted from 1999 until 2001 by Dr Gael Jennings. After that, Jenny Brockie, coming from the ABC, began to host the programme.

Soon thereafter, the format was transformed to "a discussion forum focusing on a single issue with the participation of a studio audience".[1] In the course of the programme, there are usually live satellite links to various policy makers, such as ministers, and experts from around the globe.

SBS World News Australia presenter Anton Enus is a fill-in presenter.
