You’d hope this efficiency review into both the ABC & SBS allocates some money into improving the lighting of the News Channel studio, it’s totally gross at the moment


#3

The NSW set is also a disaster.

This week’s new ACT background


#6

The 7pm bulletins began with Leigh on headlines and then the main presenters said what else was coming up and then went to Leigh again on the main story


#7

Just like how it should happen every night.


#8

The 7:30pm bulletin from the News Channel. Note the considerably long length of the beginning part of the intro.


#9

You know that they’ve done this format before? I quite like it and is an awesome idea to integrate both 7:30 and ABC News like this.


#10

Unintended graphic tonight


#11

The top story following political coverage and a LVO on ABC News Sydney tonight was about a building fire in Coonamble. Surley something around a little bit more local or relevant. Anything! A 6 hour drive from Sydney.


#12

It’s technically ABC News New South Wales


#13

Nope. There’s ABC Sydney and then the rest of the state gets ABC NSW. It just so happens that 99.99% of the time, they show the same thing.


#14

ABN, ABCN, ABDN, ABGN, ABHN, ABLN, ABMN, ABMIN, ABQN, ABRN, ABSN, ABTN, ABUN, ABWN.

They all get ABC News NSW. Not ABC News Sydney. Such is the ABC.


#15

And that’s what the backdrop on the bulletin says too.


#16

The bulletin itself is ABC News NSW - like the rest of them, supposed to be more state/territory-focused than the city/regional-focused broadcasts on the commercial networks.

ABC-TV itself? I think the only separation of the feeds is one for the capital cities and statewide/regional feeds for everyone else (eg, ABC-TV Sydney and ABC-TV NSW) but aside from the occasional spot for local radio, it’s pretty much exactly the same station 99.99% of the time.


#17

Yes, only the “Network ID” on the LCN is different.

On VHF 12 in Sydney (and metro relays at Kings Cross etc), it’s “ABC Sydney”, everywhere else it’s “ABC NSW”.
