Regine Clauwaert was the third member of the regular team that presented Zeskamp, seen here presenting a 1968 edition of the programme. She was also involved in the 1970s Dutch heats of Jeux Sans Frontières.

Like her co-presenters, Dick Passchier and Barend Barendse, she went on to forge a successful career in television, though Regine has been successful both in front of and behind the camera. In a career lasting a remarkable forty-six years before her retirement in April 2007, she became known as the 'grand dame' of cultural programming on Flemish television. For the last ten years of her career, she worked as director of cultural programming at Canvas and helped to revitalise the VRT (formerly BRT). Although the vast majority of her work in television was with the VRT, she is also very popular in the Netherlands, where she worked with Barend Barendse on Zo Vader Zo Zoon among many other programmes.
