I know the actual show, I was referring to the fact that they omitted Engine from the listing. Changing Thomas from a train to a tank.

I noticed that Channel 9 Perth aired Sale of the Century at an earlier time at 5:30pm. Back in the early days, they screened Sale at 7pm nationwide. However, Channel 9 Perth opted to air Sale at 5:30pm. Instead, US Sitcom Friends took over at 7pm timeslot. (as a result, Burgo’s Catch Phrase was bumped from 5:30pm to 5pm.) The reason why Channel 9 Perth moved the show to an earlier timeslot is because of decreasing ratings. But At least it went up against Channel 7’s Wheel of Fortune.
I miss Glenn Ridge and Sale of the Century more and more with every passing year.
This Week Marks 18 Years since The Last Ever Episode of The Price Is Right with Larry Emdur where Contestant Trevor Won $10,394 worth of Cash and Prizes. Despite Missing Out on the $120,000 Stash of Cash Jackpot and all the other Prizes including the Alfa Romeo GT 2L worth $68,784 Including On-Road Costs, P&O South Pacific Cruise and Everything. Larry Emdur was Picked up by Laura Csortan, the Presenter of The Great Outdoors picked him up as the New Co-Presenter of Wheel of Fortune Australia in 2006. But now in Present Day now Presents the Chase Australia.
Short episode of HHIS I see.
I expected that Melbourne would have had the full HHIS, with TCN9 cutting away early, as the cricket was played in Melbourne and I thought GTV9 would only show the last few hours of play.
But it turns out that GTV9 also had a cut back HHIS to 9.50am then the first 2 hours of play of the cricket, not the last 2 hours. Both TCN and GTV had an hour of highlights late at night. https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=mDZVAAAAIBAJ&sjid=wZQDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6751%2C1774896

I noticed that Channel 7 screened the Rugby World Cup match between Australia and England at Telstra Stadium. It was a great match between these two nations. After the final whistle blew, it went into extra time, until Jonny WIlkinson scored the winning field goal for England. During that period, the Wallabies were at its peak in the early 2000s. Seven News Perth aired at a later time at 7:30pm.
I remembered the good old days watching the music video shows, So Fresh and Video Hits. But with the rise of YouTube during the mid to late 2000s, most music video shows have ended production.
I noticed that CHannel 9 aired a repeat of The Price is Right with Larry Emdur on Saturday at 5pm. I wonder whether Nine Perth used TPIR as a counter programming to the Rugby World Cup Final?
I noticed that there was an M rated programming at 3pm on SBS. Although I was too young to remember what happened back 20 years ago, I believed that this contained some adult themes.
I’m Sure that put a lot of butts in seats
I wonder if they only played artits who were under labels owned by Sony? The So Fresh CD series was a Sony series though they would license songs from labels under Universal Music Group to appear on those CDs
Titanic aired from 8:30-12:30am the next day following the News and Harry’s Practice as a lead-out programming due to time difference.
The movie length is 3hr and 10 mins expanded to 4hrs to include ads
Bark-Off? Really Nine?
AFHV and Bark Off against a RWC Final
I also remember the Bathurst 24 hour, which was a GT and production car race, where the coverage on FTA was split to have a couple of hours at the start, a couple of hours at the finish, the hour at midnight which ended up showing more highlights of the support races as opposed to live action (not so easy at that time of the year) and maybe an hour at sunrise (can’t remember if the last bit actually was scheduled). But I also recall this was one of the first times that webcasting was tried at a live event and I was able to tune in at Uni for a few of the hours overnight. Naturally the quality wasn’t that great and action was largely restricted to pit lane coverage (always busy in a 24 hour race).
I didn’t know Channel 7 had the rights to this way back then. I vaguely remember it being on SBS but not 7 back then.
NBN affiliates missed out on a lot of Bugs Bunny cartoons that day.
