  1. I looked at a bit of it-will probably watch it when it’s repeated at some time-all the big cities here have much the same tale to tell of break neck rebuilding from the 50s /60s onwards with considerable cultural vandalism-CTV Perth used to show a feature length doco of home movies of Perth from the 40s to the 70s (have it on DVD somewhere). The irony is it’s the old country towns like York WA that have the best preserved Victorian/Federation architecture now as they became backwaters long ago.

  2. I have always watched Seven News in Brisbane but I’m getting sick of the fill in segments they take from social media thinking it is news, it is of no concern to me that someone decided to post a video of a genius hooking a “tiny on a trailer” to an electric scooter and scoot down the footpath beside a main road, nor am I interested in a high performance car in Italy crashing into a tourist’s mobile home, even worse using the social media posts of young career criminals skiting about their steeling and break ins, that’s just giving them more oxygen and incentive to seek more fandom, or the latest analysis segments on how many people are buying everything from chicken to retirement villas. They have a reporter out the front of a hospital after some poor unfortunate is lying inside the hospital, .it’s as bad as a reporter going to a house fire and trying to interview neighbours who probably don’t even know each other to get their side or opinions on the event as en “exclusive”

  3. Surely 7 will have to evict BB from the main channel surely anything they replace it with couldn’t rate any lower than the last couple of nights will be interesting to see the totals for last night and Monday’s episodes

  4. I just wanted to express my disappointment at Home and Away for not having a footnote farewelling Johnny Ruffo. Yes, they did it on their Facebook page but when Belinda Emmett passed away, they paid tribute.

      1. Of course Mr Knox. I made that statement based on emotion but nonetheless, many others feel sad. I can’t recall a time so many stars across the varied mediums have paid tribute. Johnny was so loved and his stoicism is a lesson to everyone. May he truly Rest in Eternal Peace.

  5. How do you solve a problem like Big Brother? Well 7’s tank is empty so will be interesting to see if they take the hit and stick it out like Million Dollar Island, or dump it off to a multichannel like Blow Up. Either way, my guess is clients are not happy and it will hit the bottom line. I also bet it quietly disappears from the 2024 lineup.

    1. You are right, clients are not happy. Can someone explain to me why it “will be interesting to see the totals for last night and Monday’s episodes. Is it that the “Totals” are including viewers on 7+ or whatever that doesn’t carry my commercials, and therefore are only of interest to me for that reason? When a 10 program that costs almost nothing draws 3x 7’s expensive exhibitionist program it seems not even the voyeurs are enough to prop it up.

  6. I watched that Lost City of Melb doco on SBS on demand & I had the chance to witness the rare archive footage of the events that have happened back in the 1950s. Melb has changed a lot since then. As well, it was great to see some photographers using some old archival photos.

    1. My wife and I laugh at the phrase “rare archival footage” which the networks use in abundance to promo nostalgic programs. Thanks for your good review TheMighty, we will watch that show tonight as proud Melburnians.
