Scottish band, The Proclaimers, started off as a duo consisting of twin brothers, Charlie and Craig Reid. Since 1986 they have written a catalogue of songs that may have only included a couple of global hits, but it's their motivated commitment to playing live and an above average strike rate placing music into film and TV that has seen their career endure.

Ahead of their New Zealand tour, Trevor Reekie talks with Charlie Reid about how The Proclaimers have achieved success on their own terms.
