It’s lucky we don’t have The Hollowmen making decisions on ABC’s triennial funding. Otherwise they would have no hope.
“Play School? Why are we still making Play School after fifty years?” asks Tony, the Prime Minister’s Principal Private Secretary (Rob Sitch)
“It needs to be constantly refreshed,” say Phillip, secretary to the PM’s Dept.
“How? The alphabet hasn’t changed. The round window…? There’s still a bear in there…..”
The clip was made as part of the ABC’s funding showcase to Minister Conroy this week in Canberra. It mocks most of the ABC’s big shows, but then as Tony says, he doesn’t really watch ABC TV anyway.
“Well I get Media Monitors to watch it for me, but I get all the transcripts.”
