I noticed that Channel 9 aired the news at an earlier time at 4:00 PM due to the One Day INternational Between Australia and South Africa at Adelaide Oval. I believed that Shane Warne commentated the match (I didn’t watch the match as I was in overseass)

Presumably Seven was delaying the tennis semi-final into Perth - which I can see why they would’ve when digital [edit: digital multi-channel] TV and making sure it’s “live everywhere” wasn’t a thing - but that would have also let them slot in a convenient time (between sets or at least games) to let them fulfil their City of Perth contract to show the Aus Day fireworks. Smart.

Saturday Disney was a great show back in the day. A shame it would become a victim of timeslot changes in its later years.

I knew the Commonwealth Games was in an early slot that year, but for some reason I never thought the games had that many prime time (in Australia) sessions.

Amazing how Nine had Looney Tunes and Seven had Disney in Melbourne. This content agreement lasted for over 50/60 years between the two stations.

back in the 70s at least in sydney nine had disney (6.30pm sundays) and seven had looney tunes (usually around 4.30/5pm weekday afternoons)

I believe that may have been from the old GTV/ATN and HSV/TCN agreements?
