He now also hosts the New Zealand version of This Is Your Life, which started up again in 2007 after a hiatus of seven years. In addition, he occasionally fills in for Mark Sainsbury as a backup presenter on the current affairs show, Close Up.


In 1999 he ran unsuccessfully for the National Party in the relatively safe seat of Wairarapa and lost the seat to Georgina Beyer, the first transsexual MP elected in the world. [ [ Election article.] ]


In recent years he has returned to journalism and received considerable attention for his work as a foreign correspondent.He has reported extensively on conflicts, famines, wars and world events. Paul has also worked for a number of international aid agencies, including World Vision, while doing his journalistic/correspondency job.
