There are plenty of movie musicals too. ELEVEN has Xanadu, Nine has Can’t Stop the Music while Foxtel has Jersey Boys, High School Musical, La Bamba, Chicago, Mamma Mia, Dirty Dancing, Woodstock and A Star is Born.


  1. And Nine has the annual repeat of Can’t Stop the Music straight after the fireworks. New Year’s morning wouldn’t be New Year’s morning without seeing Caitlyn Jenner pre-op and the legendary YMCA scene.

    • Channel 7 couldn’t even focus on a building properly during the fireworks. It was the blurriest video I’ve seen since that one starring Paris Hilton. I thought I had the TV on 3D mode and actually had to check it twice.

    Channel 9 for years used to do the New Years special with the fireworks with Richard Wilkins then it suddenly stopped a couple of years ago. I’ve watched the channel 2 one the last couple of years, it wasn’t too bad. Probably watch it again tonight.
