TV Tonight http://www.tvtonight.com.au Australia's leading TV blog Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:58:09 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 Live TV viewing drops, playback increases. http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/live-tv-viewing-drops-playback-increases.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/live-tv-viewing-drops-playback-increases.html#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:58:09 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=214012 2014-12-19_0014Australians are watching plenty of television content, but the way they are viewing it continues to evolve.

The latest Australian Multi-Screen Report, issued by OzTAM, RegionalTAM and Nielsen, indicates Australians watched an average of 96 hours and 58 minutes per month of broadcast television (including free-to-air and subscription channels) in Q3 2014, down from 97 hours and 3 minutes in Q2. In late 2012 that figure was 99 hours and 9 minutes.

However more Australians are shifting away from Live viewing.

91.6% of all in-home TV viewing in Q3 2014 was Live, down 0.2% on Q2 2014. In mid 2013 the figure was 93%.

Playback (or timeshifted) viewing is also on the increase now at 8.4%, up by 0.2% on Q2. In mid 2013 the figure was 7%.

Internet-capable TVs are also on the rise now in 29% of homes, up from 22% a year ago. 45% of homes have tablets, up from 42% in Q2 2014 and 37 per cent a year ago.

74% of Australians aged 16+ own a smartphone, compared to 67 per cent in Q3 2013.

A special survey* also found accessing TV networks’ catch-up TV websites and apps are more common on tablets than on smartphones – both via websites and apps:

20 percent of tablet users aged 14+ claim to have visited a catch-up TV website, and 15 percent to have used a catch-up TV app, on their tablets over the course of a month.
8 per cent of smartphone users aged 14+ claim to have visited a catch-up TV website, and 5 per cent to have used a catch-up TV app, using their smartphones over the course of a month.

OzTAM CEO Doug Peiffer said: “For all the changes and new options viewers have, television is still the centrepiece. Live TV viewing is level year-on-year, playback is up by nearly an hour, and people are spending more time with their television sets overall, because TVs are more versatile than ever.

“On top of their TV viewing time, Australians increasingly use their televisions to play games, watch DVDs or internet-delivered video, browse the internet, or playback TV content they’ve recorded beyond seven days from original broadcast. Such activities underscore the strength of TV and reinforce its position as the household main screen.”

Summary of key findings:
* 1,800 people aged 14+ living in households with access to one or more internet-connected mobile devices.
• Australians watch on average 96 hours and 58 minutes (96:58) of broadcast TV on traditional television sets per month – up 1:07 per month year-on-year (YOY).
• 91.6% of all broadcast TV viewing is live, with playback of broadcast content that viewers record and play back through their TV sets within seven days accounting for 8.4% (8:08 per month, up 58 minutes/month YOY).
• 100% of Australian television homes can access digital terrestrial television (DTT) channels. 95% can do so on every working household TV set.
• 55% of homes have PVRs; 15% have two or more (Q3 2013: 53%; 14%).
• Household internet penetration is stable at 80%.
• Australians spend on average 37:44 per month online.
• 29% of homes have internet-capable TVs, whether connected or not (Q3 2013: 22%).
• 45% of homes have tablets (37% in Q3 2013).
Across the online population aged 16+, people claim to spend an average 1:47 per month using tablets to watch any online video – which can include both broadcast television and non-broadcast material.
• 74% of Australians aged 16+ own a smartphone (67% in Q3 2013) and self-report an average 1:56 per month4 viewing any video on these devices.
• 13.377 million Australians watch some video on the Internet each month (including broadcast TV and non-broadcast content): an average of 7:30 per month.
Such viewing is highest among people aged 18-24 (9:09/per month).
• 89.6% of all video viewing – across all screens, and including broadcast and non- broadcast content – is on the traditional TV set.

7:30 ACT team departing http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/730-act-team-departing.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/730-act-team-departing.html#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:48:25 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=214021 2014-12-19_0043ABC presenter Chris Kimball (pictured) and producer Patricia Barraclough are leaving the broadcaster, following the axing of Canberra’s 7:30.

Barraclough has decided to leave the broadcaster she joined in the 1970s working on This Day Tonight.

She ws part of the team that started Lateline with Kerry O’Brien to develop and was the co-creator and first supervising producer of Australian Story.

For the past 13 years she has been at the helm of 7:30 ACT, and before that Stateline ACT, providing leadership and inspiration in telling Canberra stories to local and national audiences.

Director of News Kate Torney said, “Patricia’s influence on News programming and story-telling will be long lasting – she has helped shape the journalism of dozens of her colleagues and is much loved across the ABC.

“With her retirement from the ABC, Canberra audiences will lose a vigorous promoter of community debate and story-telling and her ABC colleagues will lose a valuable guide and mentor.”

Kerry O’Brien added, “Patricia Barraclough is one of the very best I’ve worked with over nearly 50 years in journalism. Trish’s experience, maturity, determination to think outside the square, mentoring capacity and sheer good-heartedness, will be missed.”

Returning: Coast Australia http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/returning-coast-australia.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/returning-coast-australia.html#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:42:56 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=214003 2014-12-18_1519Coast Australia, presented by Neil Oliver, returns to the History Channel early next month

The 8 x 60 minute series produced by Great Southern Film and Television sees Oliver travel along the Bass Strait coast of Victoria, in to South Australia, Northern New South Wales, South Western Australia, the Torres Strait, remote Norfolk Island, southern New South Wales and finally to the ochre rocks of the Pilbara.

He is joined by palaeontologist and explorer Professor Tim Flannery, marine ecologist Professor Emma Johnston, landscape architect Brendan Moar, anthropologist Dr Xanthe Mallett and historian Dr Alice Garner.

Coast Australia is the highest rated series on History.

Episode one explores the region between the Mornington Peninsula and the Gippsland lakes in Victoria, where Neil Oliver becomes one of only five people known to have set foot on the isolated island known as Skull Rock, as he joins the first scientific expedition there to discover what life it has sustained over millennia.

At Eagle’s Nest, Tim Flannery delves into pre-history, revealing his own role in discovering Australia’s polar dinosaurs and Alice Garner visits Victoria’s notorious Cheviot Beach, reliving the fateful day Australia lost its Prime Minister to these inclement waters.

Neil also travels to Phillip Island in episode one and reveals how an entire town was removed to save the penguins. Brendan Moar tackles the tricky sport of Blo-Karting along the flat sands of Waratah Bay.

On the Gippsland Lakes, Emma Johnston hunts for a brand new species of dolphin, and finally Neil Oliver takes to the skies with aviatrix Judy Pay, for an unforgettable tour of the Bass Strait Coast in a fully-restored warbird.

The first season of Coast Australia premiered in December 2013 and was the second highest rating (non-sports) series launch on Foxtel for 2013.

Monday, January 12 at 7.30pm on History.

The top 16 teams in the Asian Football Confederation will compete in the event, with matches to be played in Sydney – Stadium Australia, Newcastle – Newcastle Stadium, Canberra – Canberra Stadium, Brisbane – Brisbane Stadium and Melbourne – Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.

Australia’s Socceroos were runners up in the last Cup.

Stephanie Brantz will provide a pre-show warm-up with guests but interestingly, the television commentary for the games will be provided by FOX Sports. Given the amount of money that has been spent to gain broadcast rights this is likely to raise some eyebrows.

· Every other game night, ABC will screen a 30 minute highlight package bringing you expert analysis and the best of the day’s action across all four groups.

Rumour: “MKR with restaurants” coming to Nine http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/rumour-mkr-with-restaurants-coming-to-nine.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/rumour-mkr-with-restaurants-coming-to-nine.html#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:55:14 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213924 2014-12-17_1428Knives at the ready…. the Nine Network looks set to get into the TV food game once again, with multiple sources indicating to TV Tonight that it has a new reality format on the way in 2015.

The unnamed project from Endemol Australia, being whispered about as the “MKR of restaurants,” is rumoured to see teams travelling the country to dine in and score each others’ restaurants.

That could see it as a spoiler against Seven’s Restaurant Revolution, which reworks the network’s former My Restaurant Rules -which itself led to My Kitchen Rules.

Nine last had a tilt at a local food contest with The Great Australian Bake-Off in 2013, a local adaptation of the highly-successful UK series, and has previously dabbled with The Chopping Block from The Block producers Julian Cress and David Barbour.

Nine is still to reveal some of its key titles for 2015, after deciding against the traditional Upfronts this season. It is also expected to confirm a revival of Renovation Rumble pitting House Rules winners against The Block chamos.

ABC staff in tears after learning of ‘redundancy pools’ http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-staff-in-tears-after-learning-of-redundancy-pools.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-staff-in-tears-after-learning-of-redundancy-pools.html#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:54:02 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213955 abcsSome 100 ABC staff were advised they fall within pools earmarked for possible redundancy, yesterday.

Some were in tears yesterday after learning they are in pools with similarly skilled colleagues. According to Fairfax Media, they include journalist with up to 20 years experience, including some who had worked on the siege this week.

The Fair Work Commission on Monday recommended that staff should be notified of their potential redundancy by the close of business on Wednesday.

Staff who are willing to take redundancy have until 5pm on Friday to accept the offer, while others will consult with managers into the new year.

“Coming into Christmas, it is breathtaking in its brutality,” said the husband of one journalist.

“She feels like she has been treated with contempt.

“There was no recognition of all the work she has done or her achievements.”

An ABC spokeswoman said: “By the end of today, most of the approximately 100 staff who are in that situation will know, while more than 200 others will also know that they are not affected, which will give them certainty.

“It is important to note that, for those 100 who are potentially redundant, consultation continues and none of them will be leaving straight away unless they want to.”

The pools pitting colleague against colleague have been likened to The Hunger Games.

Massive audiences for breakfast TV after siege http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/massive-audiences-for-breakfast-tv-after-siege.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/massive-audiences-for-breakfast-tv-after-siege.html#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:51:07 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213945 2014-12-17_1513On Tuesday morning, viewers flocked to morning television to see how the siege in Martin Place had ended.

Sunrise, with its location backdrop, was unsurprisingly the preferred choice. Still shut out from their studios home, David Koch and Natalie Barr hosted live on the street. Barr, only learning on air she learned of the death of barrister Katrina Dawson while she was on air.

“I’m just finding out that Katrina Dawson was the sister of a prominent barrister, Sandy Dawson, who has done some work for Channel Seven. Who I know and who I have friends who know. She was a mother of three children,” she said.

Sunrise pulled its biggest audience of the year at a massive 634,000 viewers (it averaged 407,000 before 7am). It turned out to be the show’s 5th highest ratings ever (Beaconsfield rescue is #1).

Today also attracted their best audiences of the year at massive 502,000 viewers (385,000 before 7am).

ABC News Breakfast was also huge at 172,000  / 78,000 (135,000 / 60,000 before 7am).

Studio 10, which had put in a massive day-long broadcast on Monday, also aired from 6am but without the benefit of audience awareness was crushed by the competition. Its best figure was 44,000 from 8:30 – 9:30am with 36,000 prior to 7am.

TEN AGM: no update on new ownership http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/ten-agm-no-update-on-new-ownership.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/ten-agm-no-update-on-new-ownership.html#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:50:53 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213959 ten 10TEN CEO Hamish McLennan addressed shareholders yesterday at the company’s Annual General Meeting.

He told shareholders there was no update on ownership of the company as yet.

Here are some select excerpts of his address:

As you know, on November 6 this year we advised the market that we had appointed Citi to assist in assessing a range of potential strategic options for the company.

On December 3, we advised that Citi had received non-binding, conditional proposals from a number of parties in relation to transactions which, if implemented, could result in a change of control of Ten or a refinancing of its existing debt facilities.

An independent committee of the Board of Ten is considering those proposals in conjunction with Citi. It should be noted that the proposals are confidential, non-binding and conditional in nature, and may or may not result in a transaction which is acceptable to the company. At this stage, there is no further update to our December 3 statement. Ten will update shareholders again when required to do so under its continuous disclosure obligations.

He also spoke of performance lifts since May.

It is important to note that during the first half of the year, the company was in transition from an old content strategy to a new one.

It is also important to note that everyone at the company is focused on improving the company’s television ratings, revenue, earnings and returns to shareholders. Strict cost control is an important part of that focus. We are forecasting a decline in television costs of8.0% (excluding selling costs but inclusive of one-off events) during the 2014-15 financial year.

The six points are:
 Investing in Event Television.
 Investing in premium live sport.
 Focusing on the 25-to-54-year-old demographic.
 Bringing consistency to Network Ten’s program schedules.
 Investing in the development of new formats.
 Continuing the expansion of digital platforms and revenue.

A major review and restructuring of television News and Operations was completed successfully in July this year, without impacting TEN Eyewitness News’ ratings and audience share.

Those changes have given us more capacity to invest in prime time content. The benefits of that restructuring will be apparent in our 2015 financial year results.

TEN’s coverage of the T20 Big Bash League begins today.

Renewed: The Missing http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/renewed-the-missing.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/renewed-the-missing.html#comments Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:42:43 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213930 2014-12-17_1642Minor Spoiler: BBC has renewed The Missing for a second season.

The show is proving to be a powerful drama in the final weeks of the year.

Adopting an anthology approach, it will again be told over two time frames but with a new case, new characters and new location, which suggests a resolution to the current series now screening on BBC First.

The second season will again be written and exec produced by brothers Harry and Jack Williams. No cast have yet been announced.

Willow Grylls and Charlie Pattinson, Executive Producers for New Pictures, say: “The Missing has been a great start for our new company. We are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with Harry and Jack on a second series which promises to deliver fresh twists and insights in a completely new and unique setting.”

Charlotte Moore, Controller, BBC One, says: “The Missing surprised at every turn, weaving a gripping and complex story across two timescales which kept viewers guessing til the very end and demonstrated the range and ambition of drama on BBC One. I’m really pleased to announce that the incredible team behind the series will bring a new case to our BBC One audience and we can guarantee another challenging, contemporary story written by Harry and Jack Williams.”

The series concludes with a double episode this Sunday night on BBC First.

Two of the titles will have their Australian premiere now on Subscription TV rather than the ABC. Miranda and Death in Paradise follow on from Call the Midwife switching to STV, with a Christmas special on December 26 at 8.30pm.

It isn’t clear how many of them may air on ABC after 12 months.

Tim Christlieb, Acting Director of TV Channels, BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand, said: “We are entering exciting times as we welcome some of the most popular UK shows to BBC First for the first time. We know Australian audiences have taken these shows to their hearts and we are pleased to be able to bring them the latest series express from the UK.”

The second series of The Musketeers will come bursting onto screens with more sword-fighting, action and thrilling adventure from January 4 at 8.30pm. Marc Warren joins the cast as the Comte de Rochefort, the Cardinal’s man in Madrid who has escaped from a Spanish prison. The Musketeers must join forces with Rochefort to carry out an audacious rescue, but can he be trusted?

The hilarious Miranda will draw to a close with one final special on January 3 at 7.30pm. Miranda (Miranda Hart) is faced with two proposals – one from Gary and one from Mike. Who will she choose and will she finally find contentment?

January will also see a new series of Death in Paradise – the popular detective series set on the Caribbean island of Saint Marie and starring Kris Marshall – being brought straight to Australian audiences from January 9 at 8.30pm.

Unions win more time before ABC redundancies http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/unions-win-more-time-before-abc-redundancies.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/unions-win-more-time-before-abc-redundancies.html#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:54:55 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213904 abc hqRedundancy negotiations with ABC staff will continue into the new year, but staff at risk will be advised they are in ABC “pools” for redundancy.

The Fair Work Commission ruled the broadcaster should extend consultation with staff, but allow any who wish to be made redundant before Christmas to make themselves known by Friday.

Staff in the pools who are at risk of redundancy must also be told by Wednesday, December 17.

A joint Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance and Community and Public Sector Union statement said: “MEAA and the CPSU argued that the pool process was inadequate, unfair and lacked transparency. We argued consultation was nowhere near enough advanced to commence a redundancy process and invited the Commission to stop the process until consultation was further advanced in the New Year.

“While the Commission did not endorse the pool process, they were also concerned to allow a process for people to depart if they had been identified as being potentially redundant and redundancy was their preferred option.”

Nine sent an email to guests advising, “…out of respect to those who lost their lives, their families and those affected by this, we have decided to postpone tomorrow’s Gallipoli screening until January.”

It also pulled the movie Mad City from its Saturday night schedule.

In the 1997 film starring John Travolta and Dustin Hoffman, a disgruntled security guard holds a school trip group hostage.

It will now be replaced by the 2003 film Matchstick Men.

Bibb joined Cordell Jigsaw Productions in 2010 after nearly a decade at Nine as producer and executive producer. He is a former newspaper journalist for Fairfax, News International and News Corp. His credits include Great Southern Land, Two Men in China, Hardliners, MegaTruckers and Wanted.

“To be offered the role of Head of Factual at the ABC is a rare honour – a privilege – and it is truly exciting to be a part of a first class creative team at the national broadcaster,” he said,

“If you have a passion for storytelling, The ABC is the place to be. It’s a place where you can tell stories relevant to modern Australia in a fresh and compelling way across a diverse range of topics, and I look forward to working with the in-house factual teams and the wider independent production community.”

Adrian Swift, Head of Content and Creative Development added, “Steve Bibb is a superb story teller and comes to the role with a background in news, documentary and blue chip factual series. But most of all, he can tell a story that connects with audiences. I’m genuinely delighted to be working with him to enhance and redefine our factual strategy in the coming years.”

Bibb begins in mid January.

Martin Place siege: ABC / SKY News http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/martin-place.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/martin-place.html#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:50:30 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213878 2014-12-16_2217As a further insight into how our networks addressed the Martin Place siege, I asked networks for some details of their coverage.

Both ABC and SKY News sent through some information early yesterday morning, which I am republishing in full.

ABC

The ABC had more than 40 staff in the field including reporters, camera operators and linking staff. Overnight there were two reporters on site, three camera operators and a links operator. Those numbers don’t include editors, producers and graphics back at base. Director of News Kate Torney and Head of Content Gaven Morris also worked through the night to oversee the coverage, which was led by the radio, television and digital producers.

News 24 mounted rolling coverage from around 10am AEDT yesterday throughout the day and overnight from strengthened teams of producers and presenters, including live coverage of all news conferences and analysis from experts. It was live through the night and broadcast live pictures of the cafe when the siege was broken with the storming of the building by police just after 2am.

ABC1 picked up the rolling coverage from 1030am yesterday and is sticking with it until this afternoon at least. NewsRadio went to rolling coverage at about the same time and also carried on right through the night. ABC Sydney 702 also went to rolling coverage from shortly after 10am until 10pm. They also ran regular updates throughout the night.

When news of the siege first broke, ABC News Digital moved into live coverage mode, launching a live blog and utilising reporting from across the ABC to cover the story as it unfolded. Rosters were shuffled and resources re-allocated to cover the story through the night, allowing us to bring the news direct to the audience when events came to a head in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

At all times the ABC was careful to report only what could be verified and waited to confirm all facts before broadcasting.

·         Yesterday, ABC and ABC News 24’s combined metro reach was estimated to be 3.7 million (23% of the metro population).

·         Yesterday, ABC News 24 reached 1.3 million viewers across the five cities (8% of people living in metro markets). This was the highest daily reach this year. This year to date, ABC News 24’s average daily reach was 773,000 (4.8%).

·         ABC News 24’s five city daytime (6am-6pm) share was 3.8% and prime-time share was 2.5%, both higher than ytd averages. This year to date, ABC News 24’s average daytime share was 2.7% and prime-time share was 0.9%.

·         Last year’s Federal Election coverage (7th September) and the Leadership Spill coverage (26th June) achieved higher audiences.

·         Yesterday, Sky News’ prime-time share was 1.5% and its day-time share was 2.6%.

·         Yesterday, ABC’s reach was 3.1 million (19.1% of the metro population).

·         ABC achieved a five city prime-time share of 9.5% and ranked third behind Seven (18.3%) and Nine (17%). ABC’s day-time share was 7.1%.

Source: OzTAM metro overnight data. Reach based on 5 consecutive minutes.

ABC News 24 Streams

·         There were 428,000 plays of ABC News24 (on all platforms – geoblock lifted). This is up significantly on the estimated 2014 daily average of 12,000.

SKY News

We have been Live on air and in rolling coverage since the ordeal began. We’ve also had a Live blog online during this time and 24-hour activity across social media.

A number of our team have been (and continue to be) on location including; Cameron Price, Dan Murphy, Celina Edmonds, Laura Jayes, James Bracey, Chris Kenny.

We’ve also had commentary back in the studio the entire time with David Speers, Peter van Onselen, Stan Grant, Helen Dalley, Jim Middleton, Kristina Keneally, Paul Murray, Ashleigh Gillon, Vanessa Grimm, Sharon Mckenzie, Terry Gallaway and this morning Nina Stevens, Kieran Gilbert and Stan Grant.

Airdate: Blown Away http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/airdate-blown-away.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/airdate-blown-away.html#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:44:20 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213870 2014-12-16_230940 years after Cyclone Tracy all but wiped the city of Darwin from the map, ABC airs Blown Away,  a documentary of previously untold stories that reveal compelling new perspectives.

This will focus on the controversial mass evacuation and the troubled reconstruction, and investigates the socio-political effects the event still has on Darwin and its residents four decades on.

“The story of Cyclone Tracy is an anthemic Australian narrative,” says producer Rachel Clements.

“It’s a modern example of survival and heroism so intrinsically engrained in Australian culture and like so many historical events that are now part of Australia’s history and mythology – such as the bombing of Darwin, Peter Falconio and Azaria Chamberlain – Tracy is above all else a Northern Territory story. It’s time that Australia reflects back on this monumental incident of our nation’s history with fresh eyes.”

Extraordinary archival footage, stunning newsreel and photographs, immersive animation, an intensely evocative musical score and in-depth interviews with flamboyant and legendary characters who lived through the storm or arrived in its immediate aftermath, tell a powerful story revealing the legacy and myths of Cyclone Tracy including the coming of age of Darwin, the heroism of Darwinians, and the politicisation of the rebuild.

“In research and development, it became very clear to us that there were so many untold stories, myths and legends surrounding the storm,” says producer/editor James Bradley.

“Producer Rachel Clements and I became very excited about the potential of a documentary that looks back on the cyclone after 40 years and challenges the history books.”

Is it true that many traditional Aboriginal people left Darwin before the cyclone hit or was this just a convenient rumour that saw authorities dodge their duty of care to Aboriginal people? Were lax building standards responsible for the city’s almost complete destruction? Was pre-cyclone Darwin a real city or just ‘an outpost of Empire at the end of the road’? Did the Mayor really sleep through it all? And at dawn did he really don his pith helmet, pick up his rifle and traverse the ruined city shooting dogs? Did General Alan Stretton really ban New Years Eve? Why was the rebuild of Darwin such a political minefield? And why has Cyclone Tracy become so deeply ingrained in the Australian national identity?

The failure of most official records of the disaster to mention Indigenous people is addressed with fascinating stories from the Larrakia people, the traditional owners of the Darwin area and accounts of traditional Aboriginal beliefs that explain the cyclone and resulting devastation from a cultural standpoint.

“Cyclone Tracy changed Darwin, some may argue for the better, while others long for the Darwin of old,” says writer/director Danielle MacLean, a leading Indigenous filmmaker based in Darwin.

“The landscape changed, people were evacuated, some never returned and new people came to town. Larrakia people remained here on their traditional lands and continue to fight for the right to speak for their country.”

Tuesday, December 23 at 8:30pm on ABC.

Seven News weekend sport presenter Sean Sowerby and reporter Emily Angwin will host along with fellow reporters, Nathan Templeton and Jackie Quist.

“It’s been another momentous year and it will be great to see it out in style,” Sowerby said. “We’re going to have some fun.”

Coxy’s Big Break presenters Lee Chan and Rhys Uhlich will be stationed at Melbourne’s hot spots throughout the coverage, providing live updates as revelers prepare for the final countdown.

Molly Meldrum will deliver his trademark annual music wrap on the night, while viewers will see a recap of the year’s biggest news stories and events.

A bevy of Channel 7 stars will share their New Year’s resolutions including Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dannii Minogue, and Daniel MacPherson alongside the Sunrise team, Seven News presenters Peter Mitchell and Jennifer Keyte and many more.

Subscription TV …. don’t mention the numbers http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/subscription-tv-dont-mention-the-numbers.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/subscription-tv-dont-mention-the-numbers.html#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:41:53 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213867 shhhASTRA has sent out a Press Release talking up the shows that have performed this year -but neglected to supply any of the audience figures aside from its best performer the AFL preliminary final between Hawthorn and Port Adelaide at 478,847 viewers.

This is a disappointing turn of events from the sector, as it faces a barrage of competitive alternatives and a battle against Piracy.

STV has traditionally been reluctant to reveal ratings numbers due to reporting that has historically compared it to Free to Air television. Its model of +2 channels, repeat viewing and heavy Timeshifting has always played out differently to FTA overnight playouts.

But audiences now understand fragmentation and they, better than anybody, know what it means to view content outside the traditional ‘Live’ playout.

There are also media who are happy to point out the differences in methodology.

Asked why their release did not include audience figures, ASTRA is yet to respond.

Aurora’s 12 Days of Christmas http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/auroras-12-days-of-christmas.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/auroras-12-days-of-christmas.html#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:40:14 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213810 2014-12-16_2321Not-for-profit community TV channel Aurora has been in a giving mood this week, once again donating free air time to 12 Australian charities in the lead up to Christmas.

Community Service Announcements for a different charity are running each day until December 24th with an entire Christmas day incorporating CSAs.

Aurora CEO Phyllisse Stanton said, “As a community channel, we love bringing recognition to other organisations that are doing great work in their corner of the world. Our 12 Days of Giving campaign is a nice way for us to give something back, and to raise awareness for a range of great causes.”

Some of the charities include Alzheimer’s Australia, Vinnies, Oxfam, World Vision and Animals Australia, as well as smaller organisations such as Taralye and Resthaven.

Stanton said: “For the smaller organisations that don’t have the budget for TV advertising, the 12 Days of Giving is a rare chance to spread the word to a larger audience. We hope that this campaign will help them raise the awareness and funds they need to continue to help the most vulnerable members of Australian society.”

In addition to the featured 12 charities, Aurora is inviting other organisations to submit their CSAs to be part of the special Christmas Day line-up. Charities can also submit CSAs to be aired during the New Year period.

“We think it’s important to get involved in the Christmas spirit and celebrate this special time of year, and helping charities is a big part of that for Aurora,” she said.

For more information, or to add your CSA to Aurora’s Christmas line-up, please visit Aurora Community Channel at www.aurora.tv.

Gallery: Day of Drama http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/gallery-day-of-drama.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/gallery-day-of-drama.html#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 18:58:30 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213812 ssd4An ordinary Monday morning, barely a week out from Christmas, turned into the biggest news day of the year as a gunman held cafe patrons hostage in Martin Place in Sydney.

Australian networks interrupted broadcasting schedule for rolling coverage all day and into the evening, stretching news crews to the limit as Australians turned to their television screens.

The Lindt cafe opposite Seven’s Martin Place base saw The Morning Show with Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies covering the unfolding event Live for 40 minutes before police evacuated Seven’s building.

The proximity to Seven’s studio, as well as bank and government buildings, was frequently mentioned as a likely factor in the choice of site.

But as the home of Seven News, the crisis threw into disarray their normal ability to cover major breaking news. But while Seven’s crews hit the street as the city began to grasp what was taking place, a makeshift news centre was set up in the board room at Seven’s Jones Bay headquarters.

Seven juggled their coverage by leaning upon its Melbourne newsroom with Nick Etchells anchoring much of the day’s coverage. Across the day reporters included Ann Sanders, Melissa Doyle, Chris Reason and Mark Riley. As the drama wore on deep into the night Seven’s Perth crew took charge of presentation, anchored by Susannah Carr.

Seven was matched in their coverage by Nine, TEN, ABC and SKY News -all of which stayed on air across the day with rolling coverage.

Studio 10 remained on air for a marathon 8.5 hours led by Sarah Harris, Joe Hildebrand, Ita Buttrose, with Hugh Riminton, Sandra Sully and former NSW premier Kristina Keneally. Following an extended TEN News was a Project special and more rolling coverage with Riminton and Sully thereafter.

Nine’s coverage stretched across the day and into the night including an extended edition of A Current Affair, with Tracy Grimshaw breaking into her holidays, and Nine abandoning its evening schedule with Wendy Kingston as anchor.

Many journos and crews put in marathon hours yesterday under challenging conditions where teamwork was the key.

International coverage came via Al Jazeera, BBC and CNN.

But providing wall to wall coverage with no clear finish line in sight also meant having to fill hours of broadcast time with speculation, recapping, press conferences, opinion and interviews with experts in hostage situations, psychology and the Muslim community.

Sometimes the language was quick to imply conclusions other than those still being avoided by Police.

As some hostages even contacted media, some chose to report the details while others observed police requests to keep the details undisclosed.

After 2am the crisis reached a fatal crescendo, ending a marathon day of Live broadcasting. This morning Sunrise was reporting on location, outside the exclusion zone.

Networks will now need to amend upcoming schedules as a result of rolling coverage. Today’s ratings results will not resemble any of the programming that went out yesterday. Coincidentally, some of the programmes scheduled included Nabbed, Person of Interest and Homeland.

Sadly there was nothing fictional about what unfolded in the real world.

Binge is the new black amongst US viewers http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/binge-is-the-new-black-amongst-us-viewers.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/binge-is-the-new-black-amongst-us-viewers.html#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 18:55:21 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213843 TV-RemoteHalf of adult American viewers now identify as binge-viewers, according to a new study of 1,000 adults with pay TV subscriptions.

The PricewaterhouseCoopers survey found more than half of survey respondents admitted they binged more frequently in 2014 than they did last year, and 60 percent said they string three or more episodes together at least once a month. Amongst younger viewers the results were even higher.

Sixty-one percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement, “there are too many shows to watch, and not enough time to watch them.”

“They are binge-viewing just to keep up,” Matt Lieberman, director of PwC’s entertainment, media and communications practice, told The Huffington Post.

Encouragingly, viewers were willing to pay extra to access as many shows as possible, not just sticking to one platform.

“We heard stories of consumers filling up their DVRs with their favourite series and also starting/stopping online subscription services just to get to their favourite content,” Lieberman said.

But there was also a 6 percent drop in cable subscriptions in 2014 for those under the age of 35 while only 42 percent expected to have cable TV service in 10 years time.

UK steps closer to retransmission fees http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/uk-steps-closer-to-retransmission-fees.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/uk-steps-closer-to-retransmission-fees.html#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 18:52:11 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213845 2014-12-16_0139While Australian broadcasters debate whether Foxtel should be paying to carry Free to Air signals, British watchdog OfCom says the BBC and ITV could be allowed to charge pay-TV companies for the same service.

Ofcom indicated the revenue generated from retransmission fees would help compensate public service broadcasters in an increasingly fragmented television market.

ITV and Channel Four want the rules changed to charge for retransmission but SKY opposes any change.

Ofcom says other changes such as relaxing TV advertising rules and new tax breaks to encourage investment could also help the coffers.

“The entire TV industry must meet new challenges from an evolving media landscape, which brings risks and uncertainties,” said Ofcom Chief Executive Ed Richards.

In Australia the Lewis Report recently recommended, “The ABC and SBS could achieve a significant saving if they no longer bought satellite capacity to provide their services on Foxtel.”

ABC Managing Director Mark Scott recently told a Senate hearing , “Of course we would welcome not having to pay that money but there are costs involved.”

This is the final new episode for 2014.

The first question they tackle is one that many people will relate to – what do you do with the horrible sweater you’ve been given for Christmas? The teams also try to work out what the Queen will give you for Christmas, who the richest fictional creature is, and why Santa is off the rich list, before they try to work out what the year before 1AD was called.

They discuss how Santa came about, and the frightening German anti-Santa, then Stephen gives the teams little chemistry labs and shows them how to make a silver Christmas bauble.

Brissy steps back in time with Secret Cinema http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/brissy-steps-back-in-time-with-secret-cinema.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/brissy-steps-back-in-time-with-secret-cinema.html#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 18:40:44 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213797 2014-12-15_1207On the weekend hundreds of World Movies took part in the first Secret Cinema event at Brisbane’s Tramway Museum.

The site was transformed into a 1920s experience as guests in period costume attended for a secret film screening of Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen starring Donnie Yen and Qi Shu.

“Over the last four days we have taken World Movies Secret Cinema to a whole new level,” said Chris Keely, General Manager of World Movies. “From the exciting location to the stunning film, theming and performances – the response from our hundreds of guests has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s exciting to take our channel off-screen in a way that is fresh and engaging.”

World Movies Secret Cinema is a complete secret until it begins, with guests only aware of the time and date. Attendees received SMS clues with a final meeting point on the day of the event. From here, guests were escorted on to a fully-restored 1920s tram, taking a leisurely ride into the tram sheds of Brisbane’s historic tram museum that was transformed into a speakeasy club.

Once there, guests were greeted by a live Jazz band, burlesque performances, Charleston dancers and roaming actors that interrogated, bewildered and mesmerised the crowd.

Guests were treated to a delicious Asian-inspired snack, which was complimented by a glass of Australian wine. Attendees were also encouraged to don their best glad rags and take part in the World Movies Tram Photobooth, with the most creative photo winning a $1000 cash prize.

ABC can’t get enough of local comedy http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-cant-get-enough-of-local-comedy.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-cant-get-enough-of-local-comedy.html#comments Sun, 14 Dec 2014 17:58:45 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213704 2014-12-15_0003Take a look at the recent AACTA Award nominations and it’s abundantly obvious…. if it wasn’t for the ABC viewers would be starved of almost all Television Comedy.

All 5 nominees for Best Comedy aired on the ABC. Local scripted comedy is negligible at SBS and Seven (on 7mate only) while other broadcasters have a shameful recent track record.

But ABC’s Rick Kalowski is relishing his move as an independent producer to the broadcaster’s Head of Comedy, which he assumed in mid 2013, even in the face of funding cuts.

“The last few weeks have been quite distracting with all the things that have been going on. But most of the time it’s all of the good bits of being an independent producer and none of the bad bits,” he tells TV Tonight.

“The challenge before was being sucked into the vortex of one project at a time and it was very hard to juggle multiple projects. Now I get to be creatively involved with a bunch of projects.

“It’s a privilege to do Comedy at a place where the only limits are our budgets. We can’t get enough Comedy.”

ABC recently announced 4 key comedies for 2015 including Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane and The Ex PM.

Also returning are Please Like Me and Utopia while Kalowski says more is on the way.

“There are things in development that we’re not quite in a position to announce yet,” he says.

“My feeling is there will probably be about 6-8 new things on next year.”

The Ex-PM with Shaun Micallef is tipped for early in the second half of 2015.

“It’s a great concept and the quality of the idea has really come along in the development process. The scripts are so funny. I think you’ll see a more humanistic side to Shaun’s comedy. It’s not just about a person struggling with relevance deprivation syndrome –which in and of itself is funny at a very high stakes level,” he explains.

“But there’s something about what happens to men when they get to the end of their careers, running around like whirling dervishes, convincing themselves they are doing it for their families or countries. They get to the end of their careers and they are faced with the question: Was it all worth it? Or to put it even more painfully: Have I Led a Worthwhile Life?

‘I think the show has the potential to open up the way people see Shaun as a comedian.”

Comedy initiative Fresh Blood is also leading to new Sketch shows.

“A couple of things we have selected for the second stage of that are Sketch and the idea is we will give 5 projects from the first stage a Pilot and 2 of those will be Sketch. I have at least one other Sketch project in development and the moment and of course the Indigenous dept has Black Comedy which has done pretty well.

“It’s certainly something we want to do more of. I think there will be a renaissance of Sketch at the ABC in the next 2-3 years.”

Word on ABC comedies has been spreading, with shows such as A Moody Christmas attracting US format rights and Please Like Me airing on US cable Pivot.

“I get emails all the time from agents about the format. It’s amazing how fast foreign territories are aware of our shows. There are managers and agents in the US who have worked out what time it is in Australia on a Friday morning when our ratings come out,” Kalowski continues.

“It’s so important to them to know these shows are performing in their home territory. They are right across everything we do.

“One of the challenges at the ABC is that we have an audience that skews relatively old compared to other networks. But (Upper Middle Bogan and It’s A Date) are doing 2 things for us: playing broadly and playing really well in younger demos –which at the ABC means under the age of 49.”

GristMill Productions, producers of Upper Middle Bogan are now focussed on a new kid’s series Little Lunch meaning UMB is on hold, at least temporarily.

“It’s physically impossible for them to turn around and do any more of UMB for us until at least early next year. Similarly with It’s a Date we need to look at how the series as a whole performs,” he explains.

“But there is also a conversation about the possibility about something coming out of It’s a Date as a possible spin-off. But it’s a conversation at a pretty embryonic stage and we haven’t agreed on anything yet.”

Meanwhile Princess Production’s other big name collaborator Chris Lilley is yet to announce his next move.

“I think Chris is laying low for a while and thinking about what he wants to do next. I don’t think he knows,” he says.

“But we’re in development with something else with Princess Pictures which has a female antagonist comedy, almost within a sort of ‘Julia Davis’ (Human Remains, Nighty Night) sphere.

“I love it, it’s from an all-female creative team.”

Kalowski, who previously produced At Home with Julia and Wednesday Night Fever, is also yet to determine the next partnership with Bondi Hipsters whose recent comedy Soul Mates screened on ABC2.

Developing new comedy-makers is central to his department, especially when there are so few opportunities for scripted comedy elsewhere.

“For me it’s not so much about what the project is but what is the voice of the person we want to work with,” he says.

“That’s really exciting, giving new people a go.”

Weekend Today culls Emma Freedman http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/weekend-today-culls-emma-freedman.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/weekend-today-culls-emma-freedman.html#comments Sun, 14 Dec 2014 17:54:03 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213699 2014-12-14_1312Emma Freedman will be out of the picture as Weekend Today‘s weather presenter.

Freedman (pictured, centre) joined Nine in 2010 and has also been featured on Today filling in for Steve Jacobs, plus the network’s racing coverage.

On the weekend, her father horse trainer Lee Freedman reacted on Twitter, “Congratulations to CH 9 for firing Emma Freedman in a cost-cutting measure. Wonder what they’ll do to the ones with no talent?”

A Channel Nine spokesperson told News Corp, “It was all about budget.

“Emma’s contract is up at the end of the month and we are not renewing it”.

Other Nine faces are expected to be considered for the position.

Recently Karl Stefanovic told TV Tonight, Nine’s spending since floating as a public company a year ago does impact on production.

“It’s certainly been a year that has been a little bit unsettled in terms of costs and it’s understandable. They’re in the game of making money for shareholders. I think it will always be an ongoing battle, particularly in breakfast TV: us fighting for everything we can get, and them fighting for everything they can get for shareholders.”

BBC3 outlines channel shift to online-only model http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/bbc3-outlines-channel-shift-to-online-only-model.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/bbc3-outlines-channel-shift-to-online-only-model.html#comments Sun, 14 Dec 2014 17:50:00 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213702 2014-03-07_0132In what is likely to be viewed with some scrutiny by Australian broadcasters, the BBC has further outlined its closure of youth channel BBC3 as a terrestrial channel and moving its content to an online-only platform.

The channel, which features new UK comedy, current affairs and documentaries for young adult audiences, is shifting online to save over £50 million a year, but the moves must still be approved by the BBC Trust.

BBC Three online will continue its content strategies but will also “develop new forms, formats, different durations, and more individualised and interactive content.”

Damian Kavanagh, BBC Three Proposal Lead said, “Our proposal is to re-invent BBC Three for the digital age and to take risks with ideas, talent and technology. We want to take what’s great about BBC Three and what’s great about digital and merge the two, to give audiences something of the digital world, not just in it. This is not moving a TV channel and putting it online. This is new. We are the first broadcaster in the world to propose something like this.”

BBC Director-General Tony Hall says: “With the licence fee frozen we’ve had to make difficult decisions – and none more so than our proposal to move BBC Three online. In rising to this challenge, we’ve managed to come up one of the most exciting and ambitious proposals I’ve seen since I came back to the BBC.

“By searching out new ways to engage and entertain young audiences on their terms, the new BBC Three will be a great example of how we can reinvent the public service for the digital world – using their talent, appearing on the platforms and devices that they use and talking to them as equals and partners.”

Danny Cohen, BBC Director of Television, says: “As a former BBC Three Controller this genuinely wasn’t an easy decision but if ever there’s proof that necessity is the mother of invention, I believe it’s today’s proposal. I didn’t want to makes savings by simply salami-slicing again across the board in BBC Television – for me that wasn’t an option.

“I’m truly very excited about the plans we are developing, both in terms of what they will mean for the future of BBC Three and what we can learn to drive the whole of the BBC forward in a time of relentless digital and technological change. I don’t want us to sit back as a legacy company and watch as generational change bites away at our impact – I want us to be at the forefront of that change.”

The change is set for third quarter 2015.

NEP has acquired Seven’s 50 per cent share in Coventry Street Properties, owner of the Media City Melbourne (MCM) television studio complex.

Seven will remain a client with a multi-year commitment while other independent producers have included Endemol Australia, FremantleMedia Australia, Roving Enterprises and Shine.

NEP Australia CEO Keith Andrews said: “NEP is always exploring options to grow our business and further engage with the local television production community. As with our recent purchase of Silk Studios in Sydney, we are committed to owning and operating studios, and assuming full ownership of Media City Melbourne complements that strategy. We have enjoyed a successful working relationship with Seven and look forward to continuing to service Seven Network productions while also seeking to further diversify MCM’s client base.”

By mid-January the facilities will complete an upgrade of all internal technical facilities and the existing studio control room to High Definition.

Sunday NRL matches live in 2015 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/sunday-nrl-matches-live-in-2015.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/sunday-nrl-matches-live-in-2015.html#comments Sun, 14 Dec 2014 17:45:12 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213713 2014-12-14_2238Sunday afternoon matches will be shown live* in 2015.

NRL CEO Dave Smith said the agreement would mean seven matches live every week – two on Nine and five on FOX Sports.

“There is nothing better than watching games live and now it is going to become a prime time reality on Sundays,” he said.

“Channel 9 will show Sunday games live throughout the season so fans will see every minute of the game as it happens.

“It means NRL games will be shown live on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday in 2015.”

* All 26 Sunday matches will be shown live in Sydney with 23 live matches in Brisbane once daylight saving ends.

The first three weeks of Live Sunday Football on Nine will be:
Round 1 – Panthers v Bulldogs
Round 2 – Rabbitohs v Roosters
Round 3 – Rabbitohs v Tigers

“In other words fans will see some of the top teams of 2014, including the Premiers South Sydney, in blockbuster matches to kick off the Sunday coverage,” he said.

“We are scheduling big games that people want to watch on Sundays.

“So not only will we have a great offering on television but there will be better games for fans at the ground on Sunday afternoons – when so many families are able to attend.”

Nine CEO David Gyngell acknowledged there was a clear message viewers wanted live football coverage.

“Everyone prefers to watch games live – we just had to make it happen,” he said.

But there is no confirmation of games in High Definition, something viewers also want, and which was flagged by the Nine boss when the NRL deal rights was signed.

The official schedule for 2015 will be released today.

These episodes are nearly two years old.

“Stochasticity”

Marty and the Pod adjust to the “new” Galweather Stearn in the aftermath of a sexual harassment scandal. Interim CEO Julianne Hofschraeger needs Marty to live up to his reputation of being a fearless closer. This poses a challenge when Marty consults with Mr. Pincus, a valued client no one in the company knows.

Jeannie relives haunting memories from a drunken night out with Marty when she returns to work from a paid leave of absence. At home, Marty struggles to patch things up with Roscoe since he moved out to live with his mother, Monica.

The show will complement weeknight opinion show Paul Murray Live.

“I’m really excited to join SKY News for Hinch Live . I came very close to being dead there not so long ago — so this is really special.

“With a new show out of Melbourne, I think we can really add some excitement to Saturday and Sunday night viewing.

“It will be Live. We’ll engage social media. We’ll engage the audience. And I won’t pull any punches.”

Australian News Channel CEO, Angelos Frangopoulos said: “Derryn is one of the great Australian broadcasters and I’m delighted that he’s agreed to join SKY Newsat our new Melbourne studio centre.

“He’s a formidable journalist and I look forward to his insight and analysis on Hinch Live.”

Hinch has also written on his blog that he would have liked to hosted Today Tonight, but ‘carpet-strollers’ at Seven knew his style contradicted the show’s content.

“I think it’s a tragedy that Seven doesn’t have a nightly current affairs program. I suspect even the Adelaide and Perth versions will disappear next year. There is a welter of public interest stories and issues out there and you don’t have to fall back on cellulite, sports bras, fad diets and new fashion store openings.”

The SKY show begins 9pm Saturday January 31.

Call The Midwife: xmas special http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/call-the-midwife-xmas-special.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/call-the-midwife-xmas-special.html#comments Sat, 13 Dec 2014 17:41:42 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213308 2014-12-13_1608BBC First will fast-track the 2014 Call The Midwife Christmas special later this month.

This is a 75 minute special where we finally see Vanessa Redgrave who, until now, has been the unseen narrator.

It is likely to be 12 months before this airs on ABC.

The episode opens in 2005 with Jennifer Worth (Vanessa Redgrave) at home preparing for Christmas with husband Philip. She reminisces about the friends and colleagues of her youth at No‎nnatus House and as she talks, we cut back to 1960.

Rehearsals are underway for the Sunday School Christmas Concert and while Chummy tries to choreograph dancing snowflakes, Trixie sets to work designing a Father Christmas outfit for Fred to wear.

Chummy is enlisted to help run a poorly managed mother and baby home, and with Patsy’s help succeeds in bringing some Christmas joy into the residents lives.

Cynthia is drawn deeply into a case concerning two former residents of a Victorian mental hospital who have been left to fend for themselves and are barely coping. This causes Cynthia to make a life changing decision. There is but one question in all of their hearts, though it goes unspoken – what will 1960 bring?

Starring: Jenny Agutter (Spooks), Pam Ferris (Little Dorrit,) Miranda Hart (Miranda), Judy Parfitt (Girl with a Pearl Earring), Helen George (Doctors), Bryony Hannah (Cemetery Junction), Laura Main (Monarch of the Glen), Stephen McGann (Emmerdale), Cliff Parisi (EastEnders)

Guest Starring: Vanessa Redgrave (Letters to Juliet), Ronald Pickup (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Kacey Ainsworth (EastEnders), Ruth Sheen (Doc Martin)

Friday at 8.30pm on December 26 BBC First.

Waleed Aly takes permanent Project chair http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/waleed-aly-takes-permanent-project-chair.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/waleed-aly-takes-permanent-project-chair.html#comments Fri, 12 Dec 2014 18:56:35 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213668 2014-12-02_1203As tipped, Waleed Aly has been confirmed as the third permanent host for The Project, joining Carrie Bickmore and Peter Helliar.

Aly, who has been a longtime part-time host, will replace Rove McManus whose four month stint comes to an end.

He assumes the role that has welcomed guest hosts following the departure of Charlie Pickering in April.

Aly, who recently won a Walkley Award for an opinion piece in Fairfax, is well-regarded within TEN. He resigned from his Radio National commitments two weeks ago and his Big Ideas show ended as part of ABC funding cuts.

Readers were evenly divided over the idea of his becoming a permanent third wheel, when TV Tonight tipped him to land the position:

  • Love Waleed! Hope he gets the gig.
  • I’d be keen for him to join the show. I think he’d be great :)
  • I think Waleed is a good choice for an ongoing hosting role
    I would be back for the Project if that happened….I like Waleed….have seen his work on the ABC and enjoyed what he did…
  • He is watchable but I just can’t seem to connect with him as a host, and don’t think I could all week.
  • Don’t let him in. Having Waleed Aly makes me switch off The Project.
  • I hope this does not happen. I am not a fan of Waleed and regard his views as exteme left wing.
  • He’s not the strongest host and not the best choice for the permanent host. I have been watching the show pretty much every day since it started but if this happens, I’m afraid they’ll lose me as an avid watcher.

News Corporation is already drawing attention, positively, to his religious background dubbing him “the first Muslim to co-host a major prime time television show on an Australian commercial network.”

According to the man himself, “One of the things that has pleased me most about the whole experience with TEN and The Project is that it (religious and ethnic background) has never come up.”

The show takes a break after next week and Aly will begin on January 26th.

Broadchurch: trailer http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/broadchurch-trailer.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/broadchurch-trailer.html#comments Fri, 12 Dec 2014 18:54:00 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213661

The second season of Broadchurch hints at an abduction tale (we’re getting a lot of unsafe kids in thrillers these days).

And Charlotte Rampling joins the cast.

But more mysterious for Australian viewers will be the launch date on ABC, given it returns in the UK on January 5.

Will viewers have to wait until the return of ratings on February 8th?

Top Gear special simulcast with UK http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/top-gear-special-simulcast-with-uk.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/top-gear-special-simulcast-with-uk.html#comments Fri, 12 Dec 2014 18:51:30 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213479 2014-12-12_1803For the first time ever in Australia, Top Gear will be “simulcast within minutes of the UK broadcast.”

This is the expedition that involved the trio having to flee angry locals in Argentina.

The two-part Patagonia Special will premiere on BBC Knowledge in Australia on Sunday, December 28 at 7.30am with an evening broadcast at 7.30pm.

Part two will air Monday, December 29 at 7.00am with an evening broadcast at 7.30pm.

The Top Gear Christmas Specials are famous for two things: putting cars through immensely tough challenges, and not being ready in time for Christmas.

This year though, not only will it be transmitting at roughly the right time, it also features the most gruelling car exploits yet, as the boys take three V8 sports cars on a 1600 mile trek through Patagonia.

The usual habitat for a Porsche 928, a Lotus Esprit and a Ford Mustang is the civilised world of tarmac, but in the hands of Jeremy, Richard and James, these three sports bred machines face swamps, deserts, forests, beaches and ski slopes as they try to get to the southernmost city in the world, in order to stage an epic game of car football against Argentina.

Along the way there are broken bones, epic backdrops, mechanical calamities and cows, plus a climax that wasn’t exactly the one that was expected.

Part 1
Sunday December 28 at 7.30am AEDT

Part 2
Monday December 29 at 7.00am AEDT

Fargo and True Detective were the top two shows, with five and four nominations, respectively.

Both Amazon’s Transparent and the CW’s Jane the Virgin broke through in the comedy categories.

There were good showings by The Affair, Jane the Virgin, and The Missing, including for Aussie Frances O’Connor.

The telemovie / miniseries category is bursting with worthy contenders including Fargo‘s Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, True Detective‘s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, plus Mark Ruffalo from The Normal Heart.

But Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory were completely shut out this year, as was 2014 darling Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on Jan. 12th.

If it wins the Ensemble award it will outstrip ER‘s wins.

Other multiple TV nominees include Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and Homeland with three nods each.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson who both missed an Emmy will face off for the Best Actor in a Drama  -surely McConaughey’s this time?

Edie Falco now has more nominations than any other performer. And great to see Tatiana Maslany recognised, also Maggie Gyllenhaal. But where is Fargo‘s Alison Tolman?

The awards will presented Sunday, January 25th.

ABC TV Head of Arts resigns http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-tv-head-of-arts-resigns.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/abc-tv-head-of-arts-resigns.html#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:53:20 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213624 2014-12-11_1824Katrina Sedgwick, Head of TV Arts since 2012, has resigned to take up the position of Director/CEO of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne.

Sedgwick, who joined ABC following her role as former CEO of the Adelaide Film Festival, has overseen commissions including Autopsy on A Dream, The Art of Australia, I Want to Dance Better At Parties, Hannah Gadsby’s Oz, The Real Mary Poppins, Art & Soul 2, Brilliant Creatures , and Tender.

She has also overseen The Book Club, Jennifer Byrne Presents and At the Movies.

“I’m leaving the ABC with genuine regret – I’ve loved my time here – but this is an opportunity I just cannot turn down. It has been an enormous learning curve working inside a broadcaster of this size and scale, but it’s been both very creative and very satisfying to work with so many wonderful people across the ABC as a whole.

“I will particularly miss my colleagues in TV Arts who are such a brilliant team, the ABC Arts Council and the TV Executive. And I’ve loved working with some truly amazing program makers both inside and outside the organisation. I hope that we can continue to collaborate in new ways through ACMI!” she said.

Richard Finlayson ABC’s Director of TV says ”Katrina brought vision and ambition to ABC TV’s Arts slate, and by recognising the power of bringing the various platforms together, she created a single brand, ABC Arts, that will be the leading curator of Arts-based content in the country.

“Not only has she nurtured new and emerging talents, she has found breakthrough moments for Arts programming, like The Art of Australia and Brilliant Creatures both of which have reached massive national audiences and keep Arts in the mainstream conversation.

“We’re sad to lose Katrina, but I’m sure we’ll continue to work alongside her in her new role.”

She departs in February.

David Letterman to bow out May 20 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/david-letterman-to-bow-out-may-20.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/david-letterman-to-bow-out-may-20.html#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:51:30 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213595 letterman_David Letterman will end his three decade late-night career on May 20th 2015.

At 32 years Letterman is the longest running late-night host in US history, first with 1982 debut of Late Night with David Letterman on NBC followed by The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS in 1993.

In 2013 he surpassed Johnny Carson’s 31 year record.

No date has yet been set for his replacement, Stephen Colbert, though he will leave The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, next week.

There is speculation he will begin in September, more than three months between after Letterman’s departure with CBS tipped to announce interim plans soon.

Craig Ferguson who ends The Late Late Show on Dec. 19 will be followed by guest hosts before James Corden begins in March.

She will play Peggy Blomquist, “a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations.”

Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights) will play her husband Ed, “a butcher’s assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife’s self-discovery, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.”

The anthology series will tell a completely different story with a new cast set in 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota. The story will focus on a young Lou Solverson, played by Keith Carradine in the first season, on a harrowing case he experienced while working as a state police officer in Sioux Falls. The role has not yet been cast.

Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes and is due in late 2015.

Imparja partners with MediaHub http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/imparja-partners-with-mediahub.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/imparja-partners-with-mediahub.html#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:47:25 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213543 2014-12-10_1655Indigenous broadcaster Imparja Television has signed MediaHub as its new playout facility.

The Alice Springs-based broadcaster screens to an audience of one million across regional areas of Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, including 200,000 viewers in terrestrial black spots.

CEO of Imparja Television, Alistair Feehan said, “Given the rate of technology change in the broadcast industry and the cost of keeping abreast of these changes meant that we had to decide whether to marginalise the business or take the appropriate steps in order to remain a healthy and competitive member of the industry.

“Making the move to have MediaHub, Australia’s market leader in this space, provide our playout is indeed one of those appropriate steps.”

MediaHub CEO Alan Sweeney added, “MediaHub will provide Imparja Television with comprehensive technical and operational resources. As a result of our many years experience and technical knowhow and the fact that we continue to use the very latest, state of the art equipment and processes this service will assist Imparja in its day to day broadcasting and increase the company’s efficiencies.”

Sunday Night: Dec 14 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/sunday-night-dec-14.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/sunday-night-dec-14.html#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:45:24 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213599 2014-12-11_1505It’s the final Sunday Night edition for the year, as guest reporter James Thomas visits the world’s largest civilian hospital ship in Africa.

The ship was also the subject of the doco Surgery Ship which aired on SBS last year.

Ship of Hope
A story that will make you proud. Guest reporter James Thomas meets an amazing bunch of big-hearted Australians on the world’s largest civilian hospital ship. The Mercy Ship delivers free surgery and health-care to some of the poorest people in Africa. We meet a thoracic surgeon from NSW and a paediatric nurse from Queensland who are among the dozens of volunteer doctors and nurses treating thousands of patients at every place the Mercy Ship docks. James also catches up with an engineer from Sydney who is sharing the incredible experience with his wife and three children. The generosity of these Aussie heroes is only matched by the joy of those they’re helping.

Sunday Night will also encore popular stories from earlier this year:

5:2 Revolution
There is a revolution sweeping the world. It’s called the 5:2 Diet and it’s changing lives, even saving lives. Millions have tried it successfully to shed a few kilos, but modern science is now discovering the benefits don’t end with weight loss. Regular fasting can also help reducing your risk of diabetes and dementia. It can even make you smarter. Sunday Night chief investigations reporter Ross Coulthart travels to the U.K. to meet the man behind the 5:2 revolution, Michael Mosely. Ross takes Michael’s advice and puts his diet and a new way to exercise to the test.

Ghost Island
Forty years ago, it was the most crowded place on earth – then everyone disappeared. Japan’s Hashima Island was home to 5000 coal miners and their families. The small speck of land surrounded by sea was a thriving metropolis, packed with high rises, several schools, businesses and supermarkets. Then the boom went bust. Almost overnight it was abandoned and made off limits. But a starring role in a James Bond movie led to the rediscovery of Hashima. Join PJ Madam on a tour of one of the strangest places on earth.

Music Mash Up
The biggest stars and their greatest hits in a red carpet event that only Sunday Night can deliver.

Sunday at 7.00pm on Seven.

Seven also has double Resurrection on Sunday at 9:30pm

Eaten Alive new contender for moron of the year http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/eaten-alive-new-contender-for-moron-of-the-year.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/eaten-alive-new-contender-for-moron-of-the-year.html#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:40:58 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213454 2014-12-12_0111SPOILER:

Discovery will tonight air its publicity stunt Eaten Alive in which Paul Rosolie will attempt to get eaten by an anaconda snake.

By now there has been so much publicity for this, you would have to have been living in the rainforest not to have heard what went down -or, more to the point, what didn’t go down.

Rosolie abandoned the stunt when he reported numbness in his limbs, and concern that one of his arms was close to breaking point.

So the title for the show is false advertising.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals blasted him for his stunt.

“Under natural conditions, anacondas go weeks and even months between meals, eating only when necessary for survival and expending the tremendous amount of energy required to attack, constrict and consume large prey only when the payoff outweighs the risk,” a PETA spokesperson said.

“Paul Rosolie and his crew put this snake through undeniable stress and robbed her of essential bodily resources. She was forced to constrict and then not allowed to eat.”

Discovery responded with a corporate bullshit response:

“Paul created this challenge to get maximum attention for one of the most beautiful and threatened parts of the world, the Amazon Rainforest and its wildlife. He went to great lengths to send this message and it was his absolute intention to be eaten alive. Ultimately, after the snake constricted Paul for over an hour and went for his head, the experiment had to be called when it became clear that Paul would be very seriously injured if he continued on.  The safety of Paul, as well as the anaconda, was always our No. 1 priority.”

So the snake misses out, the audience misses out and the guy is worried he might be injured. What did he think would happen?

And this was all for the rainforest? Sting once did a lot for rainforests too but it never involved injuring animals nor ending with an anti-climax.

Rosolie later joked with Jimmy Kimmel that he probably owed it to “the people of the planet Earth to get eaten by something.”

No, you owe it to the people of planet Earth not to be a moron who wastes our time.

Eaten Alive airs 8:30pm tonight on Discovery

Mad as Hell trimmed to 1 season for 2015 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/mad-as-hell-trimmed-to-1-season-for-2015.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/mad-as-hell-trimmed-to-1-season-for-2015.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:58:41 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213175 10maheShaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell has had its order sliced from 20 episodes in 2014 to 10 episodes in 2015.

The ever-popular Micallef, who has attracted good ratings for two seasons at 8pm Wednesdays, will also be fronting his own sitcom next year, The Ex PM, playing a a former Prime Minister with relevance deprivation. It will also feature longtime colleague Francis Greenslade.

But the Mad as Hell team will return for a single, fifth season.

It’s not clear whether the decision is directly related to funding cuts, but a clue may lay in the 20 episode order for Charlie Pickering’s as-yet-untitled comedy.

The Jon Oliver / Jon Stewart-style show will see Pickering “calling bullshit on newsmakers, special interests, politicians
and other charlatans.”

Set to air on Wednesday nights, it’s yet to be confirmed if the show will air in an 8pm timeslot for half of the 2015 ratings year, potentially leaving Mad as Hell with one quarter of the schedule.

ABC’s Head of Entertainment Jon Casimir, recently spoke about the challenge of finding suitable shows for the Wednesday 8pm timeslot.

“It remains a great challenge for the ABC because it’s easy to make fun, risky, edgy shows at 9 or 9:30 at night,” he said.

“But at 8:00 when you’re in a PG timeslot it’s more of a challenge. So we need shows that are big, bold, easily recognisable and understandable. You’re going to ‘get it’ when you drive past on a bus ad or billboard. It’s broad enough to hit a family, but distinctive and ambitious enough to suit the ABC.”

Govt tells industry to agree on piracy measures -or else http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/govt-tells-industry-to-agree-on-piracy-measures-or-else.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/govt-tells-industry-to-agree-on-piracy-measures-or-else.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:55:49 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213549 2014-12-10_2316The Federal Government is moving against online piracy by asking industry players to agree upon an industry code, to be registered with ACMA by April, or it will do it for them.

It wants broadcasters, copyright owners and ISPs to work together on a warning notice scheme for infringements, but will also introduce legislation to block piracy websites.

Attorney General Senator Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull wrote to “industry leaders” advising:

We expect the code to address the following objectives:

  • that ISPs take reasonable steps (including the development of an education and warning notice scheme) to deter online copyright infringement on their network, when they are made aware of infringing subscribers, in a manner that is proportionate to the infringement
  • informing consumers of the implications of copyright infringement and legitimate alternatives that provide affordable and timely content
  • providing appropriate safeguards for consumers
  • fairly apportioning costs as between ISPs and rights holders
  • ensuring smaller ISPs are not unfairly or disproportionately affected, and
  • include a process for facilitated discovery to assist rights holders in taking direct copyright infringement action against a subscriber after an agreed number of notices.

The Government has also decided to introduce legislation that will enable a court to order the blocking of overseas hosted websites that can be shown to be primarily for the purpose of facilitating online copyright infringement.Foxtel today welcomed the Government’s decision to legislate to help address the issue of online piracy.

Foxtel CEO Richard Freudenstein was quick to welcome the steps.

“We recognise that there are a number of things that need to be done to address this problem. At Foxtel we are addressing the issue by making content available quickly, through our Express from the U.S. initiative, and affordably, with new pricing and the launch of the Presto service,” he said.

“The introduction of legislation will have two main effects. First, it gives us tools to deal with the operators of pirate sites. The people who run pirate sites are criminals who steal content from creators and profit from their theft.

“Secondly, it will allow us to reach out to people who download illegitimate content to educate them that what they are doing is wrong and that there are many legal options they could take. The fact that there will be legislation will itself be an important factor in sending the message that piracy is wrong.

“We look forward to working with the Government and other industry participants to develop a workable regime.”

In unrelated news raids this week by Swedish police saw torrent sites The Pirate Bay, EZTV, Zoink, Torrage and the Istole tracker all taken offline.

According to TorrentFreak, a police raid targeted a data centre in Nacka which is ‘built into a mountain.’

Paul Pintér, Sweden’s police national coordinator for IP enforcement, said “There has been a crackdown on a server room in Greater Stockholm. This is in connection with violations of copyright law.”

But the move appears to have been short-lived with The Pirate Bay already back online at a Costa Rican top-level domain.

Steve Quartermain celebrates 30 years with TEN http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/steve-quartermain-celebrates-30-years-with-ten.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/steve-quartermain-celebrates-30-years-with-ten.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:52:22 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213561 2014-12-10_2207

TEN Eyewitness News presenter Steve Quartermain last night celebrated 30 years with the network with a party at the Olsen Hotel, South Yarra.

“Quarters,” who became lead Melbourne anchor following the departure of Mal Walden a year ago, joined in 1984 following a stint with ABC.

As part of TEN’s sports presenters he has covered Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Wimbledon, The Ashes, AFL, hosted 5 Brownlow Medal ceremonies and appeared regularly on The Panel plus 9AM with David and Kim.

In attendance last night were colleagues Brad McEwan, Mike Larkan, Candice Wyatt, Sandra Sully plus TEN execs including Russell Howcroft, Peter Meakin and John Choueifate.

Pyne pleads ABC South Australian case http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/pyne-pleads-abc-south-australian-case.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/pyne-pleads-abc-south-australian-case.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:51:47 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213556 2014-12-11_0041South Australian frontbencher Christopher Pyne has pleaded with Tony Abbott to restore tiered funding to the ABC in a last ditch bid to avoid the ABC closing its Adelaide TV studios.

In what will likely be viewed as a cynical and hollow exercise (much like his recent petition), he wrote to the Prime Minister to reiterate the role of South Australian production, citing the very shows that ABC employees have used in a campaign against management and the government.

He cited shows “including but not limited to The Cook and the Chef, Poh’s Kitchen, Dream Build, and the Karta orang-utan documentary at Adelaide Zoo” and the 1 million audience netted by Countdown: Do Yourself a Favour.

Shows such as The Cook and the Chef and Poh’s Kitchen have not been produced for several years.

“A return to tiered funding for regional production from the Commonwealth will allow the South Australian production unit to continue telling regionally-flavoured stories of national interest,” he wrote.

“I urge you to consider a return to tiered-funding which will allow this to occur and could potentially be found within the ABC’s current budget, to remain cost neutral overall. Time is of the essence in order to protect the jobs which may go before Christmas this year.”

But as Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull -who confirmed the cuts in a speech in Adelaide last month- has previously outlined, it’s not up to the government where ABC management make the cuts -including those in frontbecher electorates.

Last month Christopher Pyne voted against Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s motion to suspend standing and sessional orders so that he could move his motion against the proposed cuts to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Natarsha Belling to replace Mike Munro http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/natarsha-belling-to-replace-mike-munro.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/natarsha-belling-to-replace-mike-munro.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:49:16 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213570 2014-12-11_0114Natarsha Belling will resume her role as a regular TEN News presenter in February, replacing Mike Munro on the national weekend bulletin.

She will also continue appearances with The Project and Studio 10.

“I’m a passionate journalist and I’m thrilled to be back with the hardworking and dedicated TEN Eyewitness News team. I’m incredibly excited about the new national role where I get to present the 5pm weekend bulletin but also have the unique opportunity to deliver the news differently with Studio 10 and The Project. Bring on 2015,” she said.

Belling originally gave up the weekend bulletins for duties with Wake Up, telling TV Tonight it was a big risk.

“For my professional career this is a big risk. I’m under no illusion that we have an extraordinarily hard job ahead of us,” she said at the time.

Mike Munro’s 12-month contract with Ten expires on February 8th with Belling to begin on February 14th.

Airdate: Inside Schoolies: You Only Live Once http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/airdate-inside-schoolies-you-only-live-once.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/airdate-inside-schoolies-you-only-live-once.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:45:39 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213554 2014-12-10_2204ABC strays into Schoolies Week next Tuesday night with Inside Schoolies: You Only Live Once, an observational documentary filmed on the Gold Coast in late November and the following week in Bali.

This will be immediately followed on ABC2 by After Schoolies: Live with Tom Tilley, a live forum on the Gold Coast discussing the issues raised.

For some it’s ‘Schoolies’, for others ‘Leavers’, but whatever you call it, saying goodbye to high school with a week-long party is a firmly established Aussie rite of passage.

But is FOMO (fear of missing out) driving the party culture? And will YOLO (you only live once) lead to an unforgettable time for the right or wrong reasons? Have efforts to control this rite of passage led to an increase in totally unsupervised and therefore more risky environments?

From the hotel rooms of the Goldy to the nightclubs of Bali, ABC TV goes behind the bad headlines and inside the heads of young Australians as they experience the fun, anxiety, hope and confusion that has come to define this transition into adulthood.

Narrated by triple j’s Zan Rowe, Inside Schoolies will be filmed in an observational documentary style during Schoolies week (21 – 29 November) on the Gold Coast and the following week in Bali. 

Inside Schoolies: You Only Live Once 8:30pm Tuesday ABC
After Schoolies: Live with Tom Tilley 9:30pm Tuesday ABC2

Returning: The Real Housewives of Melbourne http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/returning-the-real-housewives-of-melbourne.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/returning-the-real-housewives-of-melbourne.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:42:48 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213477 2014-12-10_1639It’s still a long way off by Foxtel has confirmed the return date for The Real Housewives of Melbourne: Sunday February 22nd.

Joining Chyka Keebaugh, Gina Liano, Jackie Gillies, Janet Roach and Lydia Schiavello are property developer and mother Pettifleur Berenger and art consultant Gamble Breaux, partner to eye surgeon Rick Wolfe. Andrea Moss declined to return for S2.

Foxtel’s General Manager of General Entertainment Channels, Brendon Moo, said, “The Real Housewives of Melbourne will return with more housewives, more drama, and even more priceless ‘you have to see it to believe it moments’ in the highly anticipated second season.

“The series launched onto screens this year becoming one of the most talked about programs of 2014 and driving social conversations as Foxtel subscribers watched the exploits of our Melbourne Housewives – we simply can’t wait to bring viewers the new season which is bigger and better.”

When it comes to style and glamour Melbourne is the jewel in Australia’s crown. It’s the city where fashion, food and culture reign supreme. But relationships in this high society are like four seasons in one day, fine one minute, stormy the next. And Melbourne’s Housewives know that they had better be careful because it’s a long way to fall.

This entertaining eleven-part one hour soap-doc provides an insider view of the lifestyles of the wealthy and extravagant women with a revealing insight into their world. With two new ladies in the mix this season, get ready for wild accusations and surprising revelations that leave everyone reeling and reaching for another cocktail!

Season two begins with Janet planning a big night to celebrate her birthday. The housewives are determined to start afresh and put last year’s tensions behind them. Things are more or less going to plan when two newcomers enter the picture: art lover Gamble and property developer Pettifleur. It’s quickly clear these newbies are outgoing and bold and in taking on our Housewives, they’re going to need it!

Produced by Matchbox Pictures, part of NBCUniversal International Television Production, in conjunction with Foxtel, The Real Housewives of Melbourne is the first Australian instalment of the world’s number one lifestyle reality franchise.

Sunday February 22 at 8.30pm on Arena.

Foxtel / Seven announce streaming TV titles for Presto http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/foxtel-seven-announce-streaming-tv-titles-for-presto.html http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/12/foxtel-seven-announce-streaming-tv-titles-for-presto.html#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:41:07 +0000 http://www.tvtonight.com.au/?p=213551 2014-07-14_2223Presto has confirmed TV titles that will be available on Presto Entertainment, a joint venture between Foxtel and Seven West Media.

On offer will be local dramas including Wentworth, Satisfaction, Love My Way, Spirited, Tangle, Packed to the Rafters, All Saints, City Homicide, Home & Away, Winners & Losers and Always Greener.

But noticeably absent is A Place to Call Home, the very show that both networks have joined forces on. Foxtel is set to screen the first two seasons on air ahead of the third and fourth seasons, exclusively.

Seven will also supply British titles Mr Selfridge, Lewis, A Touch of Frost plus Rosemary and Thyme.

Upcoming US crime drama, Aquarius, staring David Duchovny, will join “soon after launch.”

Shaun James, Director of Presto and On Demand said, “These titles are just a small taste of what both Foxtel and Seven bring to the table for Presto Entertainment. The addition of hit TV shows from our combined libraries of landmark entertainment will add dozens of brilliant programs to Presto Entertainment in the lead up to launch.”

Presto Entertainment, consisting of TV titles, is offered as either a stand-alone service or can be bundled together with Presto Movies via Chromecast, selected Android tablets, iPads, and PC & Mac computers.

A date and pricing have not yet been announced.
