ABC2 picks up The Bazura Project

Another community TV project will make the leap to the big time, when Channel 31’s The Bazura Project becomes an ABC2 programme later this year.

The half hour light entertainment programme described itself as being about “films, movie, and everything in between.”

When they’re not reviewing movies, presenters Shannon Marinko and Lee Zachariah often appear in irreverent parodies of feature films.

It has also interviewed a number of writers and directors including Steven Berkoff, Leigh Whannell, Bud Tingwell, Scott Hicks, Rolf de Heer, Jason Schwartzman, Gillian Armstrong and more.

The show began in 2006 on Channel 31 Melbourne and made wider news when it questioned the Logie Awards non-inclusion of Community Television programmes. This year, the Logies relented.

ABC2 will also air the winner of the Golden Globe Best Miniseries Award, Carlos, as well as new series of both Misfits and Sanctuary.


  1. At least Channel 31 is 24/7 unlike ABC2? Maybe the popular Fish Cam that used to run overnight on Channel 31 Melbourne might make it to ABC2 with the current poaching mode that ABC2 is in for C31 content?
