Sneak Peek: The Howard Years

This documentary on the years of the Howard Government has caused quite a stir between the ABC and SBS.

Here’s a look at a documentary which has been at the centre of a stoush between the ABC and SBS: The Howard Years.

Both broadcasters have been feuding over an agreement to give SBS access to ABC Archives for its documentary on the same subject, Liberal Rule.

Independent producer Nick Torrens said the ABC agreed to sell archival footage in April last year, but later decided to put conditions on a sale to make sure that the SBS series is not screened before The Howard Years.

While there is no firm airdate yet, the ABC series must be coming soon, given it it spruiking the show via YouTube.
