The FIFA World Cup begins in Mexico, with the Opening Ceremony and first match broadcast on ABC.
Ongoing match coverage is split between ABC and SBS.
That TEN Eyewitness News ad… that reminded me… when I was young and naive (or even more naive than I am now!), I used to think TEN Eyewitness News meant that if no one actually SAW it, they couldnt report on it (eg. maybe a murder or a crash).
oh good i’m not the only person who thought that when i first saw the name lol
That was the Night on Wheel of Fortune Australia with Larry Emdur and Laura Csortan where New Champion Mayyuk missed out on the Mitsubishi Colt LS Hatchback Valued at $18,990 Including On-Road Costs for Failing to Solve a Phrase which was (You Can’t Get Blood Out Of a Stone).
The Einstein Factor was a great little gem for the ABC on Sundays. Peter Berner was a great host. The Chase’s Matt Parkinson was a regular adjudicator on the show too.
10’s Australia’s Brainiest (Specials) was a good show too. A bit of fun.
Funny seeing the kid’s programs on early Sunday mornings on Seven and Nine. Long gone are those days with the multi-channels…

Delayed coverage of the French Open Women’s singles final on Nine due to their coverage of the Cricket World Cup.
SBS showing a movie from 1922.
Tim uses his hammer to settle some debts. Wilson dabbles in peyote and has a crushing epiphany through the slats of the fence.
Video Review aired on Ten at midnight for a whole two minutes… followed by the NBL at 12.02am. What is Video Review?
Of course that was the day in which Tony Lockett kicked his 1,300th goal to become the greatest goal kicker in AFL history. A day AFL fans in Sydney would never forget.
Damn, When did Home Improvement morph into The Sopranos
It’s crazy that I can remember watching that entire 10 evening/primetime lineup.
I think it was a glorified ad/Infomercial for a video chain. Literally just a review of a new release IIRC. May have been presented by Brigitte Duclos?
