Quickflix tells Netflix to “play by the rules” http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/quickflix-tells-netflix-to-play-by-the-rules.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/quickflix-tells-netflix-to-play-by-the-rules.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 07:31:28 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205927 2014-01-23_0035Australian streaming content provider Quickflix has lashed out at US streaming giant Netflix, suggesting it set up shop in Australia or close its “back-door” service which enables Australians to hide their IP address.

An estimated 200,000 Australians are subscribers to Netflix through strategies such as virtual private networks that mask IP addresses and get around geo-blocking.

Quickflix CEO Stephen Langsford wrote an open letter (see below) to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings saying, “Be honest and face up to the issue of unauthorised access to your US service. Have the courage to limit your service only to the territories where you have legally obtained the rights to operate by abiding by the geo-filtering obligations required by your content license agreements. And do so immediately.”

Sydney-based Quickflix first launched in Perth in 2003 offering DVDs via post but added streaming in 2011.

Last week, Foxtel CEO Richard Freudenstein also told ZDNet that content owners had to push Netflix to stop accepting Australian credit cards, because Netflix doesn’t own the rights to show that content in Australia. He stated that the US streaming giant is exploiting the rights that Foxtel is paying for.

Netflix, which is currently focussed on European market launches, is tipped to arrive in Australia in 2015. As well as producing shows such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it offers streaming movies and TV shows for around $9 a month.

Dear Mr Hastings,

If you want Netflix to compete in Australia come through the front door.

Instead you’re currently enjoying a free ride in Australia ignoring unauthorised “back door” access to your US service and thereby taking revenue away from local services which are investing to service the local market and endeavouring to provide choice and competition to consumers.

Netflix not only knowingly collects revenues from subscribers with unauthorised access to your US service, investing nothing in the Australian market nor paying for Australian rights to the content you make available, but also tacitly encourages Australian consumers to inadvertently breach the copyright of the content owners.

Unlike yourself, Quickflix has obtained all necessary Australian rights to the content on its platform, faithfully meets all necessary security requirements, including geo-filtering imposed by the content rights holders, and continues to reinvest in its service with the goal of offering the very best service in the market to its customers.

Quickflix is growing its streaming service and is by far the most accessible streaming service in the market with Australian customers having access through almost half a million registered devices including smart TVS, game consoles, mobiles and tablets. But if Netflix continues to filch revenues through allowing unauthorised access, Quickflix and other local services will not be as viable as they could be nor compete as vigorously as they could. Without strong local competition Australian audiences will suffer in the long run with fewer choices, less compelling offerings and higher prices.

So Mr Hastings, we challenge Netflix to play by the rules. It’s how we do it here in Australia.

Stop turning a blind eye to the VPN services acting as a gateway to your service. Be honest and face up to the issue of unauthorised access to your US service. Have the courage to limit your service only to the territories where you have legally obtained the rights to operate by abiding by the geo-filtering obligations required by your content license agreements. And do so immediately.

Quickflix is pro-consumer, pro-competition, and pro-Australia. Should you decide to enter Australia through the front door, Quickflix will be happy to compete with you, fairly and squarely.

Yours sincerely,

Stephen Langsford

Chief Executive Officer

Quickflix Limited

It’s one of the boldest, most original things you’ll see on television right now, and it’s Australian-made (and no, it’s not The Code -which I also loved).

This one deserves to win awards.

I’ll give you the answer tomorrow and tell you why you should be watching…..

New-look series of The View launches in US http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/new-look-series-of-the-view-launches-in-us.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/new-look-series-of-the-view-launches-in-us.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 04:45:09 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205919 2014-09-16_1429The View is back on US television with a revamped line-up of Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace on a new-look set.

The group discussed everything from Joan Rivers to child abuse, Hillary Clinton and mental illness.

Daily Beast found the tone a shift to more serious topics but asked: “Does anyone want to watch an intelligent The View?”
Cautiously, after this first hour, we’ll say yes. First, because it was so refreshing—transfixing, almost, in the surprise of it all—to watch an entire episode of the show that was so civilized and on which everyone was so thoughtful. Second, while the premiere carried an atypically serious tone (and, my god, was this hour so damned serious), there were hints of the whimsy, wily mischief, and godforsaken insanity that have made this show something to love all these years, and inspired so many, as Goldberg rightly noted, blatant rip-offs.

Hollywood Reporter said:
The View seems to have adopted Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” as its new theme music. After Monday’s premiere, it might be a good idea for this show to shake off its dolor, its veneer of politesse, and get back to offering strong points of view.

Newsday said it was “A flawed if promising start”:
What did in fact change were the studio and set — a sprawling, white, columnar mashup of a college basketball gym and Roman temple — and personnel. The new co-hosts are actress Rosie Perez, GOP adviser Nicolle Wallace, and Rosie O’Donnell, back after a seven-year absence. As a jokey rite of passage, each deferred to a magisterial Barbara Walters during the opening segment by kissing her ring. (“I don’t know what all the fuss is about,” she deadpanned.)

Deadline said:
The Hot Topics segment is clunky — like a bunch of ladies just getting to know each other — Wallace says she only found out 10 days ago she was a go. Hottest Hot Topic: Ray Rice suspension from the Baltimore Ravens after TMZ released video of him punching his now-wife in an elevator back in February. It’s a pretty tired subject at this point, given the exhaustive 24/7 coverage on cable news and The Ladies divvy up reactions: Whoopi doesn’t understand why people are freaked out now, given that the incident happened months ago. Perez thinks the video showed Ray “cold clocked” her in a way that was “perhaps just too casual.” Wallace notes the “head of the NFL came up through the PR ranks and “he knows” what a public relations nightmare this is. Rosie says it would be wonderful if people who engage in violent behavior professionally could separate that from their private lives “but I don’t think that’s how the human brain works.”

No sign of this for Australian television yet, but if it takes off Pay TV may be more interested.

Margaret Pomeranz & David Stratton to retire http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/margaret-pomeranz-david-stratton-to-retire.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/margaret-pomeranz-david-stratton-to-retire.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:46:28 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205903 2014-09-16_1243Say it isn’t so!

After 28 years, Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton will retire after their last ever episode of At the Movies on December 9.

It will bring to a close an enduring 28 year run on Australian television, first on SBS with The Movie Show in 1986, before joining the ABC in 2004.

The beloved duo have recently been the subject of rumours about impending retirement, having celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2011.

“After 28 years reviewing films on television with Margaret, ten of them at the ABC, I feel it’s time to go. We’ve had a wonderful time, thanks to very supportive and encouraging audiences, throughout that period. And we’ve worked with wonderful teams, both at SBS and at the ABC, people who discovered movies alongside us, helped and assisted us, and in the process became valued friends. We couldn’t have done it without them,” said David Stratton.

“Most of all, working with Margaret, whose enthusiasm, commitment and passion has been amazing (and only occasionally irritating) has been a joy for over a quarter of a century. But, since I turned 75 last week, I look forward to less pressure and more opportunities to enjoy the movies I love, in the years ahead.”

Margaret Pomeranz added, “As David says, it’s time to go from the small screen after a great innings, thanks to all our viewers and the fabulous teams we’ve worked with over the years. And thank you to the ABC and SBS. We’ve been lucky to work for two great public broadcasters, and long may they prosper.

“My gratitude goes to David who gave me credibility just by being prepared to sit by me and discuss film when I am just a film enthusiast, not the great walking encyclopedia of film that he is. He’s a grand person, a most generous, decent man, even if a little stubborn at times.

“We’ve seen Australian films continue to mature over nearly three decades on air and I look forward to a continued involvement in this wonderful industry of ours which explores and reflects our culture and our peccadilloes. It’s been such a privilege to have been on the sidelines, witnessing the talent that this country produces in all areas of film production.

“I’m very sad to have to call an end to our show, it started out as a very fragile thing and only survived because there are enough lovers of film in this country to support a specific program about cinema. Thank you all.”

ABC Managing Director, Mark Scott: “The fact that everybody knows them as Margaret and David demonstrates how much they are loved by the Australian public. Their passionate and enthusiastic championing of the cinema art form, their articulate and always entertaining reviews and their personal rapport on stage (not to mention those earrings) have defined them. Their contribution to the ABC and to the wider arts community has been enormous. We are so proud to have worked with them for over a decade at the ABC and we will miss them. I give them five stars.”

Despite having guest hosts in Judith Lucy and Jason di Rosso, At the Movies will not be returning in 2015.

Jointly presented by APRA AMCOS and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers, the awards will honour 12 categories in film and television, with nominees to be announced in mid-October.

Emmy Award winning composer Ashley Irwin returns as the Music Director with a live orchestra at the City Recital Hall on November 12.

“It’s both a pleasure and a privilege to be invited back to musically direct the Screen Music Awards. Having been away from Oz for 25 years, working on this show reminds me of the awesome talent that exists in Australia,” said composer and Music Director Ashley Irwin.

A panel of widely respected Australian film and television composers will determine four nominees for 10 categories.

The winners of Most Performed Screen Composer – Australia and Most Performed Screen Composer – Overseas are decided through analysis of performance activity reflected by royalty earnings.

The prestigious International Achievement Award (as determined by the APRA Board of Directors) will also be presented at the event. Previous recipients include Bruce Rowland, Lisa Gerrard, David Hirschfelder, Bruce Smeaton, Peter Best and John Polson.

Returning: Alan Carr: Chatty Man http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/returning-alan-carr-chatty-man-5.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/returning-alan-carr-chatty-man-5.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 01:17:40 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205892 2014-09-16_1113UK chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man will shift to a Pay TV premiere as part of the new BBC deal.

The new season will premiere on UKTV from October 14 about a month after its UK screening. It’s not yet clear if ABC will pick up the season in a year’s time when rights become available.

Natalie Edgar, Director of Television BBC Worldwide ANZ, said: “Alan Carr: Chatty Man is hugely popular and I am delighted to have secured such a strong title for the UKTV portfolio. Filled with larger than life characters, I am now more confident that ever that UKTV has the perfect mix of hilarious comedies, brilliant chat shows, classic drama and detective series, addictive soaps and iconic British events.”

The 15 x 60’ wonderfully self-deprecating series presented by BAFTA Award-winning Alan Carr delivers side-splitting comedy with even more laughter, silly antics, celebrities and top music acts than ever before.

Loved by both the public and his guests for his irrepressible, warm and witty approach, Alan welcomes a stellar line-up of guests including British pop sensation Jessie J, singer and songwriter Ella Eyre, critically acclaimed actors Kate Hudson and Zach Braff, stand-up comedian Lee Mack and funny man Jack Whitehall.

Also joining Alan on the couch for series 13 is Emmy Award-winner Dan Aykroyd, British rapper and singer-songwriter Professor Green, English rock band Kasabian and one of the best-selling artists of all time, Lionel Richie.

Each episode sees Alan entertain three celebrity guests on his sofa, where the usual rules of chat shows do not necessarily apply! There’s high jinks, juicy gossip and with Alan’s gentle mocking approach, who knows what the celebrities will reveal about themselves? Every episode culminates with a performance from a premier music act.

Tuesdays at 9.30pm from October 14 on UKTV.

Foreign Correspondent: Sept 16 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/foreign-correspondent-sept-16.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/foreign-correspondent-sept-16.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 00:54:52 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205843 2014-09-16_1052Tonight on Foreign Correspondent Lisa Millar reports on 16 people in Ireland known as “The Disappeared” who vanished because they were thought to be informers.

For the rest of the world, the 1998 peace process signalled a new beginning for Northern Ireland – but for many people who lived through over 30 years of bitter sectarian conflict, there’s no escaping the past.

During the worst years of the violence, 16 people – one woman and 15 men – were grabbed, taken away and murdered, all because it was believed they were informers.

This group of victims is known as The Disappeared – and they simply vanished one day without a trace.

The first news many families had of what had happened to their loved ones was in 1999 when the IRA finally came clean about 9 of the – admitting the role the organisation had played in their murders. In response, a special commission was formed to help to find the remains, but not the murderers. In return for information, it provided partial immunity from prosecution and complete confidentiality.

The story of The Disappeared was catapulted into the global spotlight when earlier this year one of Ireland’s most high profile politicians, Gerry Adams, the leader of the Republican party Sinn Fein, was linked directly with the abduction, torture and murder of one of The Disappeared – Jean McConville, widow and mother of 10. He was accused in a confidential interview recorded by former high ranking IRA man, Brendan Hughes, which was made public when he died.

The recording is one of a number of secret interviews that were given by former IRA members on the understanding they would not be published until after the deaths of the interviewees.

Brendan Hughes’ naming of Gerry Adams – and the fact that Jean McConville’s body was found by a passerby, and not from a tip off to the commission – led to his arrest and questioning. The case remains with the Northern Irish prosecutors – he has denied all knowledge or involvement.

The McConville family – the children left behind when their mother was grabbed from their arms back in 1972 – say they don’t believe him.

The problem for Adams, who has always denied membership of the IRA – and others who are named on the secret tapes – is that there are now attempts by the law enforcement authorities in Northern Ireland to get access to all the other interviews, and there are 46 in all.

Lisa Millar meets some of the families who are fighting to find their loved ones. They want to locate their bodies and give them a proper burial. She also talks to former IRA man Anthony McIntyre, who conducted the interviews with the republicans involved in the secret interviews. He takes her inside the mind of a boy who joined the IRA at the age of 16.

McIntyre spent 17 years in jail for killing a soldier. After he got out, and following the peace agreement, he thought it was important that people understand the history of the IRA. He now wants the tapes destroyed, because the promised confidentiality has been breached. But he also doubts Gerry Adams’ claims of innocence, telling Millar: “I believe that Mr Adams was the architect of The Disappeared.”

It’s a heart-rending tale of families destroyed and lives broken. It’s also a story of incredible irony. Sixteen people were murdered, allegedly for informing. Now their killers could themselves be facing punishment – for informing on themselves.

Tuesday, 16 September at 8pm on ABC.

The Code http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/the-code.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/the-code.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:58:41 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205815 2014-09-15_2049Straight up: The Code is my favourite ABC drama of 2014.

It’s a devilish contemporary thriller, fresh and engaging, that would surely stand on a world platform.

Dan Spielman plays Jesse Banks, a Canberra-based political journo for online publication Password. Ned is furtively handed documents by the Prime Minister’s Director of Communications, Sophie Walsh (Chelsie Preston Crayford) designed to undermine a Minister. But the envelope includes an extra clue that piques his interest in a developing crime involving two indigenous teenagers in the outback.

He has his brother Jesse (Ashley Zukerman), who suffers from Aspergers, hack into computer systems to delve for more clues and they stumble onto a jumbled video revealing the death of one of the teens in a truck. But in doing so it puts a target on their back -it’s not initially clear from whom.

In the outback town on Lindara, Alex Wisham (Lucy Lawless) is reeling from the death of one of her students. Ex-partner policeman Tim Simons (Aaron Pedersen) works towards unraveling a possible murder case, without realising it is much bigger than anything he has dealt with before.

The crime goes all the way to the PM’s Chief of Staff Randall Keats (Aden Young) -and I will say no more. Key characters also include the Deputy PM Ian Bradley (David Wenham), Password editor Perry Benson (Adam Garcia), hacker Hani Parande (Adele Perovic) plus roles by Dan Wyllie, Paul Tassone, Steve Rodgers and Aaron McGrath. Yes it’s an impressive cast, befitting the razor-sharp script by writer Shelley Birse (Love is a Four Letter Word) -it recently won an AWGIE Award.

Director Shawn Seet (Underbelly, Love Child, The Mystery of a Hansom Cab, MDA) has imbued this high-tech drama with plenty of steely resolve. From the dusty outback roads to the fog rising off Lake Burley Griffin, it’s dense in its visual language of wide shots and pulled focus. Multi-tasked screens of computers, phones, emails and SMS messages are cleverly super-imposed on the screen beside the actors.

Dan Spielman, who impressed in An Accidental Soldier, steps up in a role that juggles the emotion required as a brother-carer, and the mystery driving the plot. Ashley Zukerman (Rush) is utterly outstanding as the brother unable to filter too much sensory information at one time. Lucy Lawless, unrecognisable from more famous roles, provides the emotional heart without over-egging things.

The Code has also enjoyed significant access for filming at Parliament House, Canberra, helping to make this a credible, modern saga. While it doesn’t show allegiance to a particular side of politics, it’s unnerving to think such manipulation and covert affairs are taking place underneath its flagpole.

For ABC and Playmaker Media to make something so contemporary is bloody brilliant (is this our own Spooks?).

Don’t miss it.

The Code premieres 8:30pm Sunday on ABC.

Nine News wins battle for Brisbane http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/nine-news-wins-battle-for-brisbane.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/nine-news-wins-battle-for-brisbane.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 18:54:07 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205827 2014-09-15_2303
Nine News Queensland, led by Andrew Lofthouse and Melissa Downes, has claimed the ratings year for 2014 in South East Queensland.

Nine News 6pm has won 25 weeks and the 6.30 half hour has chalked up 21 of 40 weeks. Seven News has won 4 and 8 weeks respectively.

“It’s satisfying to see our determination to provide the most informative and comprehensive news coverage is being so well received by our viewers,” Mike Dalton, Director of Nine News Queensland, said. “We will continue to build and improve our news service to ensure delivery of the best bulletins possible with the extensive resources we have available to us through the Nine Network and our affiliates.”

9n3

Nine has already claimed the year in Melbourne and Sydney, but the battle is much closer nationally due to Seven claiming the year in Adelaide and Perth.

Last night he took a bullet after trying to save his half-brother Josh, who had been kidnapped by Jake Pirovic. While strictly speaking he hasn’t died (that appears to come tonight), both promos and media have been teasing a Summer Bay murder.

Younes becomes the second of the Braxton trio to exit the Seven soap following the departure of Heath Braxton (Dan Ewing).

Younes has been part of the soap since February 2011, but earlier this year he was confirmed for Love Child and will also appear in ABC’s 2015 miniseries, Hidden.

Devotees of the show took to social media to express their anguish over Younes’ departure:

Last night all 10 of Australia’s top trending tweets were related to television shows: Q & A, Home and Away, The X Factor, Big Brother and The Amazing Race: Aus v NZ.

Viewers were tweeting over everything from Rochelle eliminated from X Factor, to Skye and Lisa in Big Brother and Ian Chubb on Q & A.

TEN’s Have You Been Paying Attention? was also trending.

It’s no wonder Australia will become the third country in the world to have Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings, measuring the total activity (Tweets, Unique Authors) and reach (Impressions, Unique Audience) of TV-related conversation on Twitter.

Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings will launch later this year.

This ten-part CNN series produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog tonight looks at a British music domination of America during he 1960s.

The lads from Liverpool led a musical cultural exchange that impacted everything from fashion to sexual mores to politics. Graham Nash, Smokey Robinson, Dave Clark, Michelle Phillips, and Mickey Dolenz recall what it was like to make the music that mirrored the souls of the young and the restless. Jann Wenner, Nelson George, David Wild, Tom Hanks, and Mikal Gilmore describe how The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Dave Clark Five, The Animals, The Who, and others reinterpreted and reintroduced American music to Americans.

Tuesday, 16 September at 7.30pm SBS ONE.

WCIA-TV news anchor Dave Benton has told viewers he has just months to live, after learning from his doctors that a brain tumour is too large for surgery or radiation.

“Doctors have told me that I may have 4-6 months to live,” he said.

Benton, who says he has always been frank with his audience, has been with the channel for nine years.

“It will be nine years in about three weeks and I’m dedicated to continue good work. I want to know that there will be a moment where I will stop and say ‘I hope I did good work to our viewers, I served them, I did things well,'” he added.

Airdate: The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/airdate-the-story-of-bohemian-rhapsody.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/airdate-the-story-of-bohemian-rhapsody.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 04:55:53 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205787 bohrhapMAX will air Queen documentary The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody tomorrow night, which is a 2004 documentary.

Publicity notes indicate this is an Australian premiere, but it actually aired on Ovation 2008, which I reviewed here.

When Queen defiantly released their classic rock anthem in 1976, they broke the mould. At 5:55 seconds, with opera sequences and a ground-breaking video clip, the British band went against every rule in the book. Freddie Mercury’s song still sits at the top of critics’ lists and audience favourites, and yet there is no clear unison on what the song is about. This documentary, with Richard E. Grant as narrator, dissects the history, content and appreciation of the song with loving enthusiasm. It has gone to great pains to uncover the people behind the song, making it a ‘must-see’ for any fan of the hit. Brian May and Roger Taylor return to the makeshift recording studios outside London where they recorded the song. The documentary also chats to band manager John Reid about Freddie composing the song in his London flat. Mercury’s elderly mother, and sister, reflect on the success of the band with their first number one. And there is recognition of the support from Kenny Everett, then a DJ, who played the song incessantly on his radio show -despite the staggering 5:55min length. This is a fascinating, meticulous documentary of a stunning piece of art. Don’t miss it.

9pm Tuesday on MAX.

Set in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, the Blood vs. Water features all-new pairs of “loved ones” competing against each other.

This season also sees the return of Exile Island.

The 9:30pm timeslot will ensure Nine does not cannibalise its Block / Big Brother duo.

Thursday 25th September will also Big Brother air on GO! in some cities due to the AFL Grand Final Footy Show edition at 8:30pm (check local guides).

Big Brother fans missing Live updates http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/big-brother-fans-missing-live-updates.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/big-brother-fans-missing-live-updates.html#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 03:20:16 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205779 2014-09-15_1308Die-hard Big Brother fans, many of whom would undoubtedly call themselves BB purists, have been criticising Nine’s lack of Live updates.

Nine says it is “assessing the level of interest” in offering the service for 2014, despite an obvious online backlash.

Live Updates were previously available online through Twitter and the official BB website.

They gave an insight into housemate activity throughout the day, and up to 24 hours before they would be seen on air after post-production. The Twitter feed was last updated in November.

This year they have not been available at all, sending some fans into a spiral.

Annual fan website Behind Big Brother also weighed in:

And in an extra insult to fans, the official BBAU Twitter account, Executive Producer Alex Mavroidakis (who is usually a prolific tweeter) and Channel 9’s social media manager refuse to answer any questions from fans about the status of the feeds.

It appears Big Brother production has no ‘live’ team whatsoever. The official BB website contains no updates from the house and so far news stories have only been posted after the show aired on Channel Nine, so they contain no new information.

This in stark contrast to last week when Alex Mavroidakis told us he and his co-producer were “Big Brother purists“.

The end of the Updates follows on from Nine not offering online camera feeds when it commenced the series in 2012 which TEN had offered a decade earlier. It’s believed the decision to end these was to avoid adult content clashing with Nine’s PG-rated series. But already this year there have been some raunchy moments that push a PG boundary.

This year the Friday Night-style games are also understood to have been ditched, although in truth these were added several seasons into TEN’s production in what is an evolving Reality franchise.

Facebook fans have also vented on everything from the casting to Nine’s scheduling, but so far ratings have delivered in the Demos.

As to current Live Updates, a Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Channel Nine has extensive online content available to audiences through many social mediums including the Channel Nine website 9jumpin.

“Resources have been enhanced for the 9jumpin Big Brother website where viewers can review shows, and when it comes to voting, this is the place that will give more power to the people.

“We are assessing the level of interest in a BBAU LIVE outlet and the prospect of providing a similar viewing platform for our audience.”

The official #BBAU LIVE Twitter feed has a very-interested 58,300 subscribers.

The Australian Financial Review reports the companies explored a bid for 10 – 20% stake which would have allowed high-profile shareholders Lachlan Murdoch, Gina Rinehart, Bruce Gordon and James Packer to retain their combined shareholding of around 40 per cent.

But the bid did not proceed reportedly “for a number of reasons” including disagreements with Providence over price and structure.

TEN CEO Hamish McLennan had reportedly held discussions with Providence during a visit to Australia earlier this month.

AFR claims Providence is still working on a takeover proposal, with Foxtel to partner on content or marketing.

Both Foxtel and News Corp have long been rumoured as possible candidates for TEN acquisitions although the latter has repeatedly denied it.

Meanwhile The Australian today reports Bermuda-based billionaire Bruce Gordon recently increased his TEN shareholding to just under 15% after buying an extra two million shares.

Seven West Media proprietor Kerry Stokes also owns a stake of just under 5 per cent, just shy of the threshold where he would have to declare his interest.

TEN declined to comment to AFR.

For more than a century, Hart Island – in New York’s East River – has been used as a state-funded burial site for unidentified homeless people and still-born infants.

In a macabre twist, the burials are carried out by prisoners from the nearby Riker’s Island jail.

The mass grave – the largest tax-funded cemetery in the world – now contains more than a million bodies.

But unlike other cemeteries, Hart Island is run by the prison’s department and is strictly off limits to visitors.

Mystery surrounds the identity of those buried there. Even if a family is able to establish that this secretive site is the last resting place of their loved one, they won’t be allowed to access the grave site.

On Tuesday’s Dateline, reporter Aaron Thomas follows a group of courageous women whose still-born babies are buried on Hart Island as they fight for the right to visit their children’s grave.

Tuesday, September 16, at 9.30pm on SBS ONE.

Corrected.

Both Melbourne and Sydney surged past the 500,000 mark. Nine snared 3 of the top 5 spots, while Seven can take comfort from the fact that X Factor has not been losing audience, holding steady at 1.2m viewers.

Nine network won with a 32.0% share then Seven 30.5%, ABC 17.4%, TEN 13.8% and SBS 6.3%.

Next for Nine were Nine News (1.37m) and 60 Minutes (1.11m). Big Brother underwent a coding error which will see its 432,000 adjusted to 645,000. In the arvo the NRL finals scored a strong 738,000 in 3 cities.

Seven News (1.31m) led Seven followed by X Factor (1.2m), Sunday Night (1.06m), The Last Days of Michael Hutchence (690,000) and Castle (381,000 / 252,000).

ABC News (866,000) was best for ABC then the final ANZAC Girls (817,000), Doctor Who (661,000 / 78,000), The Bletchley Circle (472,000) and Compass (480,000). A repeat of Utopia was 161,000.

Modern Family (517,000 / 359,000) was best for TEN. TEN Eyewitness News was 435,000 then Bondi Vet (383,000), Movie: Prometheus (361,000) and a Bondi Rescue repeat (258,000).

Treasures of Ancient Egypt (341,000) topped SBS ONE followed by the excellent The Sixties (281,000), SBS World News (204,000), and 9/11 Escape from the Impact Zone (190,000).

Peppa Pig ruled multichannels at 279,000.

The drama behind Jan Russ http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/205704.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/205704.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:58:36 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205704 2014-09-14_2118Jan Russ is frequently referred to as the woman who discovered such names as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce.

As Neighbours casting director for nearly 25 years, her direct impact on the show’s success is the stuff of legend. But tonight she becomes the story in an emotional 2-part episode of Australian Story.

It was the mid 1960s when, as a young unwed mother, she was forced to give up her child for adoption rather than bring ‘shame’ on her family.

“It’s something that I never spoke about in my career. My family never knew about it until a few years ago,” she told TV Tonight.

“I never talked about it for so many years. Back then it was a pretty terrible time in Australia’s history.

“Vulnerable young women who found themselves pregnant and not married were really looked down on and treated as, literally, not good citizens. It was a great shame that I felt when I found out I was pregnant and I couldn’t tell my parents. So I ran away, but the treatment that we received at that time was horrific.”

As Russ recalls the heartache she has endured in silence, she fights back tears.

“It’s basically scarred thousands of women in Australia, because we weren’t supposed to talk about it,” she explains.

“I was too ashamed and frightened to talk about because I thought I people would reject me.

“That’s why, in a way, I decided to go into show business. I thought ‘I’ve got nothing to lose anymore.’ It was a pretend world so I could pretend I was somebody else.”

Russ, who had been performing in amateur musicals, threw herself into a professional career, auditioning for a JC Williamson’s show. It proved to be a move that would help her suppress emotional pain and she climbed the ladder of success.

“Working in theatre and television, in a way, saved my life, because I was focussed on something else.”

But becoming a ‘good time party girl’ in show business also entailed alcohol and later, counselling. It wasn’t until only recently she told her own family of her dark secret.

“I was expecting them to totally reject me, but they just embraced me and said ‘We wish we had have known.’”

She was also fortunate to meet her daughter decades after their parting.

“It was an extraordinary experience because you carry in your heart that little baby. But suddenly there’s a beautiful adult standing in front of you. It’s hard to comprehend.”

A few years ago the story was also the subject of a play at Carlton’s La Mama Theatre, but last year’s national apology by Julia Gillard, together with the film Philomena and Nine’s Love Child, has made it easier to talk about.

Australian Story also features Russ’ son Sam Hammington, born 12 years after her daughter. Hammington, who has lived for years in the shadow of his showbiz mum, is now a star on South Korean TV in his own right.

“The roles have been completely reversed. I go to Korea and they recognise me there as Sam’s mum!” she laughs.

The Australian Story episode also features interviews with Jason Donovan, Daniel MacPherson and Ian Smith. Russ, who these days stays engaged as an acting teacher, admits the filming experience was deeply confronting.

“The ABC and producer Wendy Page have been absolutely extraordinary. I can’t speak highly enough of Wendy, of how she has looked after me and my family and friends doing interviews. The crew have been a great team and they’ve become like family.

“I’m still frightened about when it goes to air on Monday,” she confides.

“I’m doing it for the thousands of women out there, some of whom have never admitted to their families or friends that they have had children taken from them many years ago. They are still living with this aching pain inside them, but they’re not alone.

“It’s very scary to think that your life which you’ve kept quiet for so many years is going to be very public. I’m scared of reactions, but I know I’m doing it for all the women who have had their children taken from.”

Australian Story “The Past is a Foreign Country” airs 8pm Monday September 15 and 22 on ABC.

Jeremy Clarkson sticks with Top Gear http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/jeremy-clarkson-sticks-with-top-gear.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/jeremy-clarkson-sticks-with-top-gear.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:53:15 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205732 2013-06-14_0147He’s been the subject of recent controversies, but Jeremy Clarkson isn’t about to move on from the show that has amassed him a fortune.

Writing in Top Gear magazine, he acknowledged, “There has been a lot of stuff in the newspapers recently about the future of Top Gear.

“Some seem to think there isn’t one. But I can assure you, there is. There are also those who think I won’t be part of it.

“Well, sorry, but I am. Unless I am eaten by a pack of wild dogs before the next series starts early next year.”

In May he said, “I’ve been told by the BBC that if I make one more offensive remark, anywhere, at any time, I will be sacked. And even the angel Gabriel would struggle to survive with that hanging over his head.

“It’s inevitable that one day, someone, somewhere will say that I’ve offended them, and that will be that.”

Clarkson is thought to have earned $AU25million for his work on Top Gear last year, including his salary and payments related to the show’s global success.

Reality double-dose gives Nine ratings week http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/reality-double-dose-gives-nine-ratings-week.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/reality-double-dose-gives-nine-ratings-week.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:50:34 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205695 2014-09-14_2307Nine won last week’s ratings week with its Block / Big Brother double delivering the Demos.

The end of the week was dominated by sports finals in AFL and NRL, including a staggering 57% share for Seven in Adelaide on Saturday night.

But TEN had a disappointing week, slipping behind the ABC and awkwardly relying on three-channel simulcasts to prop up an underperforming schedule.

The Block (Sun: 1.62m) topped the week for Nine. Also strong for Nine were Nine News (Sun: 1.32m), 60 Minutes (1.21m) and Big Brother (Launch: 1.04m).

Seven News (Sun: 1.35m) was best for Seven then The X Factor (Sun: 1.19m) and Sunday Night (1.09m).

Australian Story (869,000) topped ABC’s week followed by ABC News (Sun: 809,000) and ANZAC Girls (784,000).

TEN landed outside the Top 30 this week with The Bachelor (Wed: 740,000), Family Feud (612,000 on 3 x channels) and The Project 7pm (604,000).

Heston’s Great British Food (342,000), Who Do You Think You Are? (317,000) and Destination Flavour Down Under (219,000) led SBS ONE. SBS 2 also got improved shares on Thursday for 102 Minutes that Changed America (160,000) -three times higher than anything else on the channel that night.

Insight: Sept 16 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/insight-sept-16.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/insight-sept-16.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:43:04 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205709 2014-09-14_2225This week, Insight looks at how our brains process painful memories, and whether talking about them makes them better or worse.

The episode also looks at new research into whether memories can be altered so that intense emotion is removed.

Casey is still haunted by her memories of killing a pedestrian whilst driving her car. It wasn’t her fault. She remembers vivid details like the woman’s knee high stockings.

Paul still regularly thinks about how his carriage crumbled in the Granville train disaster, almost 40 years ago.

Esther still struggles to look at a plate of rare meat after years of service as a police officer and forensic investigator.

Guests include:

Kristy Fitzgerald
Kristy Fitzgerald was crossing the road at traffic lights in January when she was hit by a car. She can’t get the memories out of her head. She’s experiencing bad dreams, night sweats and anxiety. Kristy wishes she could forget that it ever happened. She’s seen a psychologist to try and deal with the memories and believes that talking about the memory has helped her cope.

Esther McKay and Laura Reaks
Esther McKay and Laura Reaks have had very different reactions to talking in detail about their painful memories. Esther was medically discharged from the police force with PTSD in 2001. She couldn’t stop crying and food often resembled body parts. She says exposure therapy saved her life. Laura, however, found talking in detail about suffering sexual abuse as a child left her feeling re-traumatised. Her current psychologist steers clear of asking about the abuse memories and instead talks about thoughts and emotions.

John Jarrett and Scott Gardiner
John Jarrett served in the Vietnam War and Scott Gardiner served in Iraq. John says exposure therapy doesn’t work. He thinks the best thing for veterans with painful memories is to speak to someone who has been through a similar experience. Scott underwent exposure therapy and says it has dulled his memories a little bit but they never go away entirely.

Paul Touzell and Barry Gobbe
Paul Touzell was on his way to work in 1977 when a bridge collapsed on top of his train, crushing the passengers in front of him. The tragedy became known as the Granville rail disaster. Barry Gobbe was the first ambulance officer on the scene. It took Paul some 20 years to be able to speak about his memories. It took Barry even longer. Paul still struggles to be on trains or under bridges and Barry is now on medication for PTSD.

Elizabeth Phelps
Dr Elizabeth Phelps is a psychologist and neuroscientist. She’s looking at how traumatic memories can be altered to remove the fear attached to them. Her research has shown that a simple memory can be edited if new information is given within the hour after the memory is recalled. But the research is still very limited – memories are stored in different parts of the brain and Elizabeth says researchers are just beginning to understand how these parts work together.

David Forbes
Professor David Forbes is a clinical psychologist and head of the Australian Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health (ACPMH). He says painful memories can become a problem and develop into PTSD if they’re not able to be processed. David says that trauma-focussed cognitive behavioural therapy (including prolonged exposure therapy) is the best way to confront these memories but that many sufferers are reluctant to revisit a traumatic event in detail.

Tuesday at 8.30pm on SBS ONE.

If the price of privacy was your phone and social media accounts…could you click ‘delete’ and enjoy a simpler life?

The comedian cabbies and their passengers will chat about: the Jennifer Lawrence hacking scandal and the privacy issues it raises; would they make a sex tape in return for fame and fortune; if they had a to choose a future world without privacy or without technology, which would they choose; and The Cloud, where is it?

Josh Earl: “Own your nudity, don’t be ashamed…get it out there and get good lighting on it.”

Returning: Derek http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/returning-derek.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/returning-derek.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:40:53 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205720 Derek_S2_10Season 2 of Ricky Gervais’ latest comedy series Derek, will premiere in Australia on BBC First next month.

It kicks off with double episodes from 8:30 pm Friday October 10.

Ricky Gervais, creator of the original British version of The Office, produces and stars in this heartwarming comedy-drama as Derek Noakes, a loyal English nursing home caretaker who sees only the good in everyone.

Derek’s sunny outlook comes in handy with his quirky co-workers and friends as they struggle against prejudice, government bureaucracy, and constantly shrinking budgets to care for elderly residents who depend on them.

A year has gone by since we last visited Broadhill Retirement Home and there’s some new residents, additions to the staff and the welcome return of a few familiar faces.

The Honourable Woman http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/the-honourable-woman.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/the-honourable-woman.html#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 18:58:28 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205653 Picture shows: Nessa Stein (MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL)It’s no surprise that film actors are turning to television. When they are as rich an experience as The Honourable Woman, an actor would walk over hot coals to land the part. This BBC drama is a showcase of talent both on and off the screen led by Maggie Gyllenhaal as a UK businesswoman.

She plays Nessa Stein, the head of the Stein Group, driven to helping resolve the Middle East peace process through philanthropic efforts such as laying communication cables in the West Bank. But Nessa has a daunting back story given her father was executed by the PLO. Her brother Ephra (Andrew Buchan) was with her when they, as young children, watched him murdered.

As this incredibly dense thriller by Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line) unfolds, there’s another death: this time Israeli dignitary Samir Meshal, just as he was about to awarded a contract by Nessa. Investigating his death is MI5, headed up by Sir Hugh Hayden-Hoyle (Stephen Rea). But another mystery will also grip these characters, involving Atika (Lubna Azabal), the nanny to Ephra and his wife Rachel (Katherine Parkinson).

The pacing of The Honourable Woman is decidedly filmic. Yes it’s a bit of a slow-burn, but there are lengthy scenes that seek to establish character and never lose their nerve in a medium not known for dwelling in the moment. The pacing here is elongated but confident.

The other distinction is that the female characters get all the good stuff, with the possible exception of Stephen Rea.

Gyllenhaal has poise and presence, brilliantly playing a British character alongside other UK nationals. One can only imagine that Helen Mirren and Gillian Anderson were out to lunch the day this casting call came through. The role affords her a steely, public persona masking a vulnerable woman in the middle of an international thriller. She is surrounded by other strong female characters, played here by Eve Best, Janet McTeer, and NIDA graduate Genevieve O’Reilly.

Stephen Rea as MI5’s outgoing head is masterful with his use of silence, as he seeks to unravel a game of espionage.

Hugo Blick as both writer and director imbues his 8 part tale with plenty of subtext, maximised by eye-catching photography and a cinematic score. Set predominantly in the UK, with some scenes in the Middle East, it explores questions of compromise, facing one’s past and a tug of war between personal and political high stakes.

This may not have the TV turning points of Homeland or Spooks, but The Honourable Woman has some killer cards up its sleeve, more fitting of a searing night in the theatre.

 The Honourable Woman airs 8:30pm Monday on BBC First.

Media Circus is a mix of media satire and party games, with two teams featuring Chaser boys and young talent they have been mentoring.

It will be hosted by Craig Reucassel, with Chas Licciardello as his sidekick, according to a News Corp story.

Originally set as 10 episodes under the working title of We’ll Have to Leave it There, it’s now set for 8 episodes from October 15, aptly on air during the G20 summit.

Executive producer Julian Morrow said the show will poke more fun at its “media comrades because we have a history of hurting the people we love”.

Axed: White Collar to end with Season 6 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/axed-white-collar-to-end-with-season-6.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/axed-white-collar-to-end-with-season-6.html#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 18:50:20 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205635 2014-03-23_0202US drama White Collar starring Matt Bomer is set to end with its sixth season.

The series was renewed in March but it was unclear if it would be the final instalment.

USA Network has now confirmed its final run will air in the US in November, at just 6 episodes long.

Joining Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay are Ross McCall, Gavin Lee, Bridget Regan, Toby Leonard Moore, Paloma Guzman, Michael Potts, Isaach de Bankole and Diahann Carroll.

“From its inception, White Collar captured a massive and loyal following, in large part due to the incredible on-screen chemistry between Matt and Tim, who deserve credit for one of the most brilliantly performed ‘bromances’ in all of television,” says USA Network president Chris McCumber.

“The series also benefited from smart writing and an extraordinarily talented supporting cast, who helped it become a fan favorite crime drama for five straight years. This season will not disappoint, with an exciting and shocking ending that fans will never forget.”

Creator Jeff Eastin adds, “Saying goodbye to White Collar -and Neal and Peter- after six successful seasons is incredibly difficult, but I couldn’t be prouder of what our entire team has accomplished over the last six years.

“I’m grateful to FTVS and USA for giving the show a great home, and I can’t wait for fans to see the twists, surprises and phenomenal performances our final season has in store for them.”

White Collar airs in Australia on ONE.

UK to track TV viewing on tablets http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/uk-to-track-tv-viewing-on-tablets.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/uk-to-track-tv-viewing-on-tablets.html#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 18:50:05 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205660 2012-10-09_1802Britain will begin tracking tablet viewing of television shows over coming months.

The Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board, funded by the country’s four terrestrial channel providers plus BSkyB, will monitor viewing habits on iPads and Android devices, having made the first “capture” of data last month.

“The ability to track how our panel members watch television on their tablets is a great step forward,” said BARB CEO Justin Sampson in a statement.

According to BARB, current industry-accepted estimates are that up to two percent of all TV viewing time is done on computer devices.

Last year, Nielsen revealed it would be rolling out a system to measure broadband, Xbox and eventually iPads in the US, but nothing yet has been formally announced.

In Australia current OzTAM panels includes sample ‘mobile households’ and is working towards the complexities of catch-up data.

Doug Peiffer, CEO of OzTAM has previously noted the different measurements of video views, stating last year, “Those numbers are usually Stream Starts. That’s when you go into the player and you start viewing something, that counts as a viewer. It’s a Start. If you come to the next Pre-Roll, that’s another Start. You Start the content, Stop the content. That accumulates, it’s not a new viewer or a unique viewer. That number needs to be discounted and that’s what we’re working on.”

Airdate: The Island with Bear Grylls http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/airdate-the-island-with-bear-grylls.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/airdate-the-island-with-bear-grylls.html#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 18:46:47 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205551 2014-09-12_1028Bear Grylls is returning to SBS with a new 2014 series in which he tests whether modern man has lost the ability to look after themselves when they’re stripped of everyday creature comforts.

The Island with Bear Grylls is a six -part series featuring 13 ordinary British men, left completely alone in the Pacific, with only the clothes they stand up in and some basic tools, filming the entire experience themselves with no camera crew.

Episode One:
The men are dropped off by Bear, and left totally alone with the clothes they stand in and a few basic tools. In danger of being overwhelmed by the tides they battle through the dense undergrowth and the enormity of the task ahead quickly dawns on them.

They have never met and whilst they try to get to know each other daylight is quickly running out. Tempers fray and doubts set in as they try to agree on where to find a shelter for the night. Even when they eventually settle on a clearing in the jungle, they get a sudden reminder that danger is around every corner.

The shock of the first few hours is temporarily forgotten as the group tumble out onto a breathtaking beach. The island may look like paradise, but when these men are fighting for daily survival, it can be hell on earth. As dehydration and hunger take hold, the men are in serious danger. If they do not find a water source and make fire, their time on The Island will be over. The battle is on as they fight for survival.

8:30pm Monday 6 October on SBS ONE

The a 90-minute renovation special sees former WA-based Block contestants Matt and Kim come to the aid of the Napoli family of Belmont whose 10 year old Rocco Jnr was diagnosed with a rare and debilitating brain tumour.

Hosted by Nine News presenters Libby Stone and Michael Thomson it will also include Darren McMullen, Dennis Lillee, Eagles players Dean Cox and Andrew Embley, Nova 93.7’s Nathan, Nat and Shaun and Robbie from The Voice: Kids.

Nine has found room in its local schedule because the Live NRL Grand Final will be over by approxiamtely 6:30pm Perth time.

“This is the night of the NRL Grand final live and with the three hour time difference it creates the perfect opportunity for Nine Perth to create local content opportunities without interrupting the network schedule,” STW9 managing director David Mott told TV Tonight.

“It is also a far more competitive lineup for Nine Perth rather than running repeats of shows when live sporting event time differences affect primetime.”

6:30pm Sunday, October 5.

TEN to improve schedule with Scorpion, Gold Coast Cops, NCIS, Modern Family. http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/ten-to-improve-schedule-with-scorpion-gold-coast-cops-ncis-modern-family.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/ten-to-improve-schedule-with-scorpion-gold-coast-cops-ncis-modern-family.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 18:58:48 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205617 2014-09-13_0145TEN will shake-up its primetime schedule at the end of the month with new and returning titles in a bid to turn around its ratings.

New US drama Scorpion will kick things off at 6:30pm Sunday September 28th, starring Elyes Gabel, Katharine McPhee and Robert Patrick.

Scorpion inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s “Scorpion” team includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru.

It will be followed by the season premiere of Modern Family at 7:30pm and a repeat at 8pm.

“The Long Honeymoon & Regrets Only”
Mitch and Cam have returned from their honeymoon and Mitch is acclimating to real life much quicker than Cameron. Meanwhile, Clair is furious with Phil – the only problem is, Phil has no idea why!

On Monday September 29th new factual series Gold Coast Cops premieres at 7:30pm.

Don’t miss the exhilarating, action-packed season premiere of Gold Coast Cops. The team of elite, hand-picked officers discover hom made explosives hidden in the car of a Hell’s Angels member.

It will be followed by former Pay TV series Territory Cops, from the same producer.

Take a behind the scenes look into Australia’s busiest police force. is a nerve-wracking stake-out for our team the wait patiently to catc remote community drug runners who are flying out of town.

A season final of Have You Been Paying Attention? airs at 8:30pm.

On Tuesday September 30th, new NCIS is back in its traditional 8:30pm timeslot.

“Twenty Kicks”
Gibbs and McGee travel to Russia to safely escort home an NCIS computer engineer connected to classified intel, but their mission is compromised while hunted by a Russian mercenary group.

There’s also a blank TBA slot waiting to be filled at 9pm Thursday October 2nd -Party Tricks following Bachelor perhaps?

It’s an improved schedule from what is on offer thanks to the US Fall season kicking off, but there are still some areas of concern. Scorpion currently has Bondi Rescue repeats as its lead-in which would be a disastrous way to launch a new series. Jamie Oliver is still in schedule on Tuesday (no sign of Recipe to Riches yet) and movie repeats still fill other under-performing slots.

It will also come under heavy artillery from Seven and Nine, also fast-tracking some US titles, but viewers will be the winners with plenty of choice.

Community TV hits back against Turnbull’s ratings argument http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/community-tv-hits-back-against-turnbulls-ratings-argument.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/community-tv-hits-back-against-turnbulls-ratings-argument.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 18:55:50 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205576 2014-09-13_0126An angry Community Television sector says it has not heard from Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull, despite his claims the government will work with them to move online by the end of 2015.

The first they heard of the decision was via a transcript on the Minister’s website on Wednesday.

Yesterday the Minister’s website published a statement and FAQs on the decision to cease spectrum to community TV broadcasters, despite them asking for a 3 year transition.

“While I acknowledge there are concerns within the CTV sector about this announcement, average prime time audiences of CTV are low with only 6000 viewers across all five capitals and some services have as few as 1000. Given the small number of services and audiences, their capacity to serve a wide range of different community interest groups is limited,” Malcolm Turnbull claimed.

But the Australian Community Television Alliance has hit back at the figures, noting that the television ratings system is geared at commercial broadcasters and advertisers. It defends that CTV ‘reach’ of unique viewers is 3 million a month.

Here is their statement in full:

In a statement on his website today Malcolm Turnbull justifies his recent shock decision to axe community television services by quoting some audience statistics that throws into question whether the sector deserves a place on the spectrum.

As with all use of statistics, it is easy to cherry pick the numbers that best support the outcome you are looking to achieve. No one should be surprised that a politician might use this approach in the face of what is proving to be a universally condemned decision.

“Average Audience” describes exactly that – the average number of viewers that watched a particular station over a period of time as viewers tune in and out. “Average Audience” is the currency of television advertising trading. It is unsurprising that community television has a low “average audience” due to the niche and eclectic nature of the program and the fact that stations do not operate primarily to attract strong “average” audiences in the same way the massively resourced national broadcasters do. Community TV audiences watch the program that is of interest to them and then switch off.

A more appropriate measure of the scale of active interest in community television is “Reach”.

Reach describes the total number of “unique” individuals who tune in and watch the station over the same period. Melbourne community television station C31 reaches 450,000 – 500,000 viewers every scheduled week – demonstrating the scale of interest and relevance of the programs we broadcast. Nationally community television is watched by over 3 million Australians every month.

By quoting community television audience as an “average” Turnbull seeks to diminish the quantum of interest in community television in the face of the overwhelming public backlash against his decision.

As a comparison Community Television currently out-rates our equivalent special interest broadcaster NITV on both “average audience” and “reach”. We view NITV as an integral and important part of our media landscape and like Community TV should not be evaluated purely on a ratings analysis.

We also note that the Minister indicates he will be working with the sector to “consider the most appropriate transition strategy” for community television. We are yet to have any communication from the Minister or the department about this decision. The sector learned of this announcement via a transcript on his personal website on Wednesday.

SBS delays Danger 5 series due to “ISIS actions” http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/sbs-delays-danger-5-series-due-to-isis-actions.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/sbs-delays-danger-5-series-due-to-isis-actions.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 18:54:21 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205620 2014-09-13_0214SBS will delay the second season of cult comedy Danger 5 due to “recent ISIS actions.”

The comedy by South-Australian production company Dinosaur, which spoofs spies attempting to kill Hitler in a 1960s-style pastiche, was due to return to air in November. The season includes an appearance by Shaun Micallef.

“It is with our deepest disappointment and sadness that we announce a decision has been made to delay the broadcast of Danger 5 Series 2 on SBS. This is due to unforeseen international news events and the recent ISIS actions and it’s felt in the current climate the series might not be received in the comedic spirit in which it was created,” says the show’s Facebook page.

“Unfortunately this delay is completely out of our control and the entire team at Danger 5 and Dinosaur are truly devastated.

“At this stage we’re unaware of when Series 2 will air, but as soon as we do, you will be the first to know.

“We hope that you will stick by us until this time as we do everything we can to show you what has taken the entire team thousands of hours of hard work, sweat and a few tears.”

SBS confirmed to news.com.au:

“In light of recent international events, SBS has decided to postpone the air date of cult comedy series Danger 5.

“Although Danger 5 was written and filmed before any of the recent ISIS actions and in no way refers to recent events, the network has determined that some themes touched on in this season are potentially sensitive in the current climate and may not be received in the comedic and satirical spirit with which they are intended.

“Given the reason for the delay of the series and the current unpredictable climate we can’t confirm or announce a broadcast date for the new series at this time.”

SBS has previously pulled episodes that found themselves ill-timed with Paul Fenech’s Swift & Shift Couriers held over for 2 years following attacks on Indian students in Australia, and withholding an episode of its first season following the death of an Australian soldier in Iraq.

Vale: Donald Sinden http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/vale-donald-sinden.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/vale-donald-sinden.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 18:49:00 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205610 2014-09-13_0027British theatre, film and TV actor Sir Donald Sinden, best known for the sitcom Never the Twain and Judge John Deed, has died.

He died at his home aged 90 following a long illness with prostate cancer.

Sinden made his name on stage as a Shakespearean actor, mostly with the RSC, and appeared in more than 70 film and TV productions.

He made his film debut in 1953 with The Cruel Sea and went on to make about 30 films.

His other TV credits include The Canterville Ghost, The Treasure Seekers, All’s Well That End’s Well, The Prisoner, Doctor In The House, Doctor at Large as well as a running spoof in satirical puppet show Spitting Image.

Sinden was also the last person living to have known Oscar Wilde’s lover Lord Alfred Douglas (Bosie) and was one of only two people to attend his funeral.

He was awarded a CBE in 1979 and was granted a knighthood in 1997 for his services to drama.

Judge John Deed‘s Martin Shaw, said, “I was sharing reminiscences of Donald only last night on the film set where I’m working. He’s one of those people you just talk about with laughter and affection, and we all have our Donald impersonation to accompany our stories of him.

“He was a walking life force and it was impossible to be with him for more than a few minutes without roaring with laughter.”

Discovery (US) chucks politicians on a desert island http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/discovery-us-chucks-politicians-on-a-desert-island.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/discovery-us-chucks-politicians-on-a-desert-island.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 07:06:59 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205586 2014-09-12_1703Just when you thought you had heard it all…..

Discovery Channel in the US has announced a bizarro Reality series (heads up, Tom Ballard), called Rival Survival, in which “two real world political adversaries,” are marooned on a remote island for a week.

Foolishly putting their hand up for this concept are Republican Sen. Jeff Flake from Arizona and Democratic Sen. Martin Heinrich from New Mexico (and by the looks of the photo they haven’t been slip, slop, slapping).

TV Line reports “Disconnected from the world on an uninhabited island surrounded by shark infested waters that mirror the seemingly treacherous terrain of the U.S. Congress,” Flake and Heinrich are “polar opposites… often at odds in the Senate” who “must put their political differences aside and work together for six days and six nights to find common ground through compromise if they want to survive…. an utterly unforgiving deserted destination where the reefs alone are fraught with dangers that include venomous stonefish, lionfish and scorpion fish.”

No word if this will air in Australia, but can we get some suggestions about two Aussie politicians we should throw on a desert island, please?

With Annabel Crabb to host?

Australian Story: Sept 15 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/australian-story-sept-15.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/australian-story-sept-15.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:57:33 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205582 jan russMany readers here will be familiar with famed Casting Director Jan Russ, whose work for Neighbours is the stuff of legend.

Russ has elevated careers to international stardom and shone the spotlight on countless others who are still working in the biz today.

On Monday night Australian Story turns the focus on her, in a moving 2 part story about a chapter of her life that she has kept hidden for years.

The episode will also feature interviews with Ian Smith, Jason Donovan and Daniel MacPherson, and is introduced by the latter.

The impact of the iconic Neighbours program, which has been on air in Australia and overseas for more than 30 years, arguably owes some of its success to Jan Russ.

Russ was the initial casting director for that program and remained in the role for nearly 25 years. In that time she cast many of Australia’s future stars, launching people like Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Natalie Imbruglia, Liam Hemsworth and Guy Pearce.

Having herself featured in many stage and television shows, Russ well understood what was required from the thousands of young unknowns wanting to be discovered. But until very recently Australia’s star-maker hid from everybody her deep, dark secret and the shame of having relinquished her illegitimate child nearly 50 years ago.

Last year, then Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, issued a national apology to the estimated 150,000 Australian women who were forced to relinquish their babies between 1951 and 1975. Jan now feels safe to come out of the closet and tell her story, but still she is scarred with shame.

The program explores the impact of this event on the various intersecting lives of people involved in Russ’s story, including her brother and sister in law who were dramatically involved in the handover of her baby daughter which she was forced to surrender for adoption.

Russ’s son, Sam Hammington who she had many years later, discusses the issues he has had to confront since learning he has a half sister. Ironically, Hammington, who speaks fluent Korean, is now a mega star in his own right in South Korea. Australian Story features his Korean wedding to his South Korean bride which was televised nationally in South Korea. “It was the most amazing ceremony,” says Russ. “I felt like I was on a Baz Lurhmann movie set actually.”

It is a deeply moving program rich with layers of psychological elements, twists and turns spanning five decades since the dramatic event which has shaped Russ’s life ever since.

8pm Monday ABC.

Community TV “death-knell” gaining mainstream coverage http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/community-tv-death-knell-gaining-mainstream-coverage.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/community-tv-death-knell-gaining-mainstream-coverage.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 03:04:34 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205566 2014-09-12_1300The bombshell news that the government would switch off Community TV as a broadcaster by the end of 2015 is now extending into the mainstream media.

The Age drew attention to a statement from Rove McManus: “What I gained from my Channel 31 experience was collaborating with fellow creative people in a group environment that taught me how to be a host and them how to be producers, camera operators, lighting technicians, set builders and editors.”

Jess Harris, from ABC’s twentysomething said, “It was the gap between having an idea and getting it out there and being able to show people what you’re capable of, show them you’re willing to work”.

SBS presenter Nazeem Hussain, who fronted Ramadan TV and Salam Cafe, said: “We were sick of seeing Muslims on TV who looked and sounded nothing like the Muslims we knew and hung out with. We were able to make TV we had never seen before on a channel that is known for being experimental … and giving voice to people who don’t have a voice elsewhere.”

Melbourne’s Channel 31, Matt Field, told AAP the transition would likely strip community TV stations of their advertising income from local small businesses.

“It’s going to be very difficult to convince those supporters of the station to migrate with us to internet-only platforms,” he said.

“It’s very likely that this will spell the end for community TV in Australia for good.”

Corrine Grant told ABC Radio, “I don’t understand how he thinks that community television can automatically switch its business model to being online when he’s not expecting the same thing as commercial free-to-air channels.

“I don’t understand why he thinks one business model won’t work for others but it will work for community television.”

Brisbane’s 31 Digital Community Manager Scott Black told 4BC:

“They’re attacking small businesses, is what they’re doing,” he said.

“They’re impending on our trade. I don’t understand why really, because we pay the federal government for the right to be able to broadcast.

“We get no funding, absolutely no funding – State or Federal.

“They’re shutting down a 20-year strong industry and stopping the future of volunteers, students, producer, hosts.”

Former Collingwood premiership captain Tony Shaw, who hosts Footy Fanatics on Channel 31, told 3AW:

“It’s done a great job,” he said.

HBO not proceeding with Ryan Murphy project, Open. http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/hbo-not-proceeding-with-ryan-murphy-project-open.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/hbo-not-proceeding-with-ryan-murphy-project-open.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 02:23:13 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205563 2013-04-11_2348Ryan Murphy’s recent drama development Open is not going ahead with HBO.

Co-written with former Dexter co-executive producer Lauren Gussis, the project explored sexuality revolving around five lead characters, including a married couple of thirtysomethings, the husband’s male co-worker and a woman in her 40s who is a yoga professional.

It was to star Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman, Wes Bentley, Anna Torv and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Murphy and HBO both recently delivered the Emmy-winning adaptation of The Normal Heart.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved. However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future,” said HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo.

60 Minutes: Sept 14 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/60-minutes-sept-14.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/60-minutes-sept-14.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:45:15 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205557 2014-09-12_1118It’s all about timing really.

In the same week that a man loses his life in a shark attack off Byron Bay, 60 Minutes brings us a story that suggests we have may have misunderstood the great white shark.

The Great White
Just as we start lifting our gaze towards summer, we’re confronted with the chilling news of another fatal shark attack. When 50 year old Paul Wilcox was taken by a great white shark off Byron Bay this week, he became the fourth confirmed shark fatality in Australian waters in just 12 months. It seems shark attacks are becoming more frequent – and this latest incident, being at one of the country’s most iconic beaches, makes it all the more confronting. But a leading group of shark researchers believe we might have it wrong when it comes to sharks, especially great whites. And they’re going to extraordinary lengths to prove it. This Sunday they take Allison Langdon on the dive of her life. Face to face with a great white shark, outside the cage, and totally exposed.

The Dark Web
This Sunday, we’ll take you into a world you probably never knew existed. It’s called the Dark Web, and it accounts for 90 per cent of the internet. It’s easy to find, and once you’re there, you can get whatever you want – drugs, weapons, even order a hitman. Scarier still, it’s totally untraceable. It’s the new place Australian teenagers are buying drugs and, as you’ll see, for some it has deadly consequences. 60 Minutes delves into this subterranean realm, as the F-B-I hunt for one of its masterminds.

Producers: Stephen Rice, Grace Tobin

Birdsville
Long before cricket, rugby league or Aussie Rules became the collective obsession of the nation, one sport reigned supreme. Horse racing was our first national sport. In fact, a settlement couldn’t be called a “town” unless it had a racetrack. These days many of those country tracks have closed but not in Birdsville, in outback Queensland. For more than 130 years they have staged and run the Birdsville Cup. It may not stop the nation, but this day of boozing, brawling and betting – certainly echoes across the outback.

Producer: Nick Greenaway

8pm Sunday on Nine.

Four Corners: Sept 15 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/four-corners-sept-15.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/09/four-corners-sept-15.html#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 00:58:25 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=205547 2014-09-12_1022Next Monday on Four Corners, it’s ‘High Rollers – High Risk?’ as Linton Besser reports on Australian casinos and the threat posed by organised crime.

Australian casinos that target Asian VIP gamblers to boost their profits could run a serious risk of exposure to organised crime, according to a range of law enforcement and security experts.

This week on Four Corners, reporter Linton Besser investigates the drive to entice foreign gamblers to Australia and the implications of that strategy.

Running casinos can be a lucrative business. It’s estimated that the industry here generates around five billion dollars a year. Much of that money comes from ordinary Australians, but increasingly companies that run casinos are seeking to boost their profits by attracting high rollers, particularly from China. VIP players are willing to bet hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single wager.

These big gamblers are often brought to the casino by companies called junkets. In Asia’s gambling epicentre of Macau, off the coast of China, they locate, transport and provide credit for the gamblers, and they have made local casino operators enormously wealthy. However, until recently Australia has only had a slender share of the VIP market.

Now Crown, led by James Packer, has won approval to develop a six star hotel and casino complex at Barangaroo on the shores of Sydney Harbour. And this casino will cater solely to VIP players.

Who are these high-rollers? Where do they get their money? And who is profiting from the junkets that bring them here?

In Macau, the junket operators are major companies, with some listed on the stock exchange. Despite this, there is evidence that some have links to organised crime.

In part, those links to criminals have been boosted by the fact that gambling is illegal in mainland China, and there is a limit to the amount of money high rollers can take out of the country. The fact that Chinese VIPs gamble on credit – which cannot be legally enforced in the mainland – can invite debt collection via extra-judicial means.

As one gambling expert told the program:

“They turn to organised crime to enforce gambling debts, using violence or threats of violence.”

The question is, how do Australian casino operators like Crown get the benefits of the junket industry but keep out the criminals? Those who know the gambling industry say it’s very difficult:

“That’s easier, much easier said than done, because if the casino is totally focused on upper end VIP only, then that appeals to a small, a certain element, and that is difficult.” – Gambling expert

This leaves any casino operator relying on VIPs with a problem. It leaves governments with a problem too. Organised crime has found a home in Macau. Will it look for more opportunities here?

Monday 15th September at 8.30pm on ABC.
