By David Knox on March 24, 2010 / Filed Under Programming 14

Here is a general overview of Seven’s plans across the Easter non-ratings break.

Seven will air new episodes of Scrubs, Royal Pains, Home and Away, Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Serial Killers, Real Crime, Lost, The Bounce, The Matty Johns Show, King of the Hill, Cougar Town, How I Met Your Mother, Family Guy and Better Homes and Gardens.

AFL will air on Thursday April 1 in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, the same night in which The Bounce shifts from Wednesdays. The Good Friday Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal airs on Friday April 2 in Melbourne.

Some timeslots in the week of April 4th are yet to be confirmed.

There are repeats of Border Security, Airways, Bones, Castle, RSPCA Animal Rescue, Crash Investigation Unit, and Criminal Minds.

Changes to the schedule include the following:

Sun Mar 28
6:30 Air Crash Investigations: Operation Babylift
April 4, 1975. At the end of the Vietnam War, the U.S army loaded hundreds of orphans onto their largest transport aircraft plane to fly them to safety. But only minutes into their escape, the plane lost control and crashed in a paddy field near the airport. Sadly, only half of the children onboard survived. The investigation began immediately, as officials searched desperately for an answer to why this tragedy occurred.

Mon Mar 29
7:30 Out of the Wreckage: Plane Crash Survivors
Tonight we meet the survivors of some of the worst commercial crashes in aviation history. Individuals who have cheated death by the slimmest of margins and crawled out of the wreckage to tell their tales. In their own words and alongside dramatic archive footage of the actual crashes, survivors tell their heart-stopping stories of survival and heart-warming stories of recovery and personal redemption in the years that follow.

Tue Mar 30
7:30 Eye of the Leopard
Following the remarkable life of one small leopard from when she is just eight days old until she is three years old and on the brink of adulthood. Legadema, as she is named, works her way into your heart as she slips in and out of danger virtually every day, running from baboons and hyenas but also making landmark strides in hunting and surviving. It is the story of a mother and daughter relationship as well as that of an emerging huntress in Botswana’s magnificent Mombo region. Narrated by Jeremy Irons.

Sat Apr 3
6:30 Tim Cahill: The Unseen Journey
A unique and rare insight into the life of Australian sporting superstar, Tim Cahill, in the lead up to the soccer World Cup. From his no nonsense on-field persona to his laid back, family orientated character once the final whistle blows, Tim reveals his innermost hopes and fears and talks about his plans for the future.

    Apart from Airways,Border Security,How I met your mother,Cougar Town and Family Guy I haven’t watched a Channel 7 show this year.

    I haven’t watched Home and Away in Years and don’t intend to.Give me the Likes of Charlie Harper and his funny Brother Alan on Nines 2.5 men over a crappy soap anytime.

    Yawn, looks like I’ll be watching DVDs, since there is nothing worthwhile on any channel.

    The new FlashForward eps are better than even, not that’s saying much LOL

    Any news for Parenthood? I know it’s not rating as good as they hoped in the US but rumors are it stands a good chance of a 2nd season pick up with Ron Howard behind the project.

    Also do we have a date for The Pacific, having seen the pilot it’s good, I just being a HBO show running 50 minutes they will need to give it a 70 min time slot.

    No date yet for Oz yet. Seven will surely go for a late slot or 7TWO on this one now.

    When is FlashForward coming back?

    Well I think is the first time Since DH, B&S and GA, will be shown in a non ratings period. I know every other easter I have to wait another couple of weeks. I assume Ch 7 is keen to start Packed to the Rafters on time mid year, so delaying GA and PP, will not be beneficial. Not sure what Ch7 have planned for Mon nights, but it is good to see Easter isn’t a dead zone like ususual. Well Done. I am happy! :)

    that’s lots of new stuff. very surprised that border security, family guy, and How i met your mother are continuing with new episodes when it would be very easy for them to just slip into repeats.

  12. JB March 24, 2010 at 9:46 am -

    At least someone’s giving us new episodes.

    The AFL match between Fremantle and Adelaide (which will air on Fox Sports nationwide) will also screen on Seven from 7.30pm to 10.30pm in Adelaide, and from 5.30pm to 8.30pm in Perth, on Sunday March 28.

  14. Michael March 24, 2010 at 6:58 am -

    Almost as tragic as Seven’s normal lineup. Apart from the first episodes of Cougar Town and The White Room (should also have been it’s last) I don’t think I’ve tuned into Seven this year.
