Hornby: A Model Empire

Coming Soon

The new UKTV Original series is an observational documentary following iconic British miniature model maker Hornby. The fascinating new series follows Hornby’s staff of dedicated engineers and model makers as well as collectors and model shop owners.

Based at the company’s HQ in Kent, Hornby: A Model World is a nostalgic look at the world’s most famous modelling company, home to Hornby Railways as well as the Corgi, Airfix and Scalextric brands. With multiple new product launches, the immersive series documents the ups and downs of trying to get these much-loved collector’s pieces to their customers on time and on budget, exploring how, by studying the original full-sized machines, these replicas are faithfully reproduced in miniature with incredible attention to detail.

The series also features a passionate community of collectors and their layouts; whose expertise and knowledge is invaluable to the company.

Episode 1: A perfect diecast replica of a 1940’s Merchant Navy steam locomotive is the task for Hornby’s design team and engineer Chris tries to capture the authentic sounds of a Light Pacific loco.

Noticed 7Two, 7mate and 7flix idents and promos on high rotation this past week, during 7 and 7mate Winter Olympics coverage. During summer non-ratings, a lot of nightly promos, especially for movies, are rested (cost saving no doubt) and a lot of B-grade Aussie and NZ content is shown (probably to boost quota points too). But now 2022 survey has begun, it’s back to full steam ahead for their multis, which we know Seven pride as a winning asset.

To their credit, Seven gives their multichannels a fair amount of promotional time on the main channel. It’s something that Nine and 10 don’t do to the same extent (something which is in their detriment IMO).

Definitely. I do see 9Go! promos on Nine’s main channel (or maybe it’s 9Gem or 9Go! on 9Gem). And as for 10, yep, they never give a stuff.

wat?

As in 9Go! promos on 9Gem :slight_smile:

ok…

As discussed in the HD Broadcasting thread.

From Sunday 13 March at 9:30PM

After the first season of Railroad Australia finished last week, 7TWO is going straight to season 2 tonight at 8.30pm.

Hauling some of the largest cargo loads across the country, this series dives into the inner workings of Australia’s railway network to meet the armies of workers who work tirelessly day and night to keep the nation’s lifeblood flowing, with help from some of the biggest and most powerful trains in the world.

On the outskirts of Melbourne, a new breed of train is being unveiled; the V-locity bullet train which will move 17 million passengers a year around the state of Victoria, connecting its major towns. Follow the work of Lara Coughlan and her rapid rail response team in Melbourne, who are in constant demand carrying out running repairs on live train lines to keep Metro Trains on time and on track. And at the Pichi Richi workshops in South Australia, it’s a huge day for 16-year-old Jayden Chandler, who wants to prove he’s got what it takes to become the fifth generation of his family to drive steam trains.

Seven don’t even know the name of their own TV shows. Every week after the commercial break, the graphics show Ms Fisher (no apostrophe and s) instead of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries.

Not sure how long it has been running, but Seven are running “Fine Art Auction” overnight Thursday-Sunday on 7TWO. Eerily similar in production and look to the Hungarian-produced Call and Win, and other similar late night call-in shows we have previously had.

If true, would suit the demos and other programming on the channel but doubt either program have enough appeal to work in those slots.
