Surprised that they didn’t have City-Country at 4pm and the Test at 7.30pm. That’s how it would be done now.

I remember All Music Video on Seven. But because of the competition on other stations, and its one-hour format, they were restricted to what they could air, and sometimes they’d air the same music videos every day for (say) 2-3 weeks.

From what I can recall, it introduced us to songs like Mya’s “Case of the Ex”, Joy Enriquez’s “Tell Me How You Feel”, Nelly Furtado’s “I’m Like a Bird” and Coldplay’s “Yellow” to name a few.

I’ve had a look and thought Hi-5 aired twice, just one hour apart… only to find out it aired at like 10:00 AM for the regional areas?? and 9:00 AM in the Metro.

Have heard of NBN but not sure if this is a regional channel.

Yes, NBN is regional. Northern NSW

This game ended with Arsenal winning the title beating Liverpool 2-1. All three goals were scored in extra time, it was 0-0 at the end of the 2nd half. I presume the ABC would have extended the telecast to accommodate the full match, or it may have been edited highlights.

I noticed that Channel 7 Perth scheduled the Better Homes at Gardens on Thursday Night. This is possibly due to the AFL being played at Subiaco Oval the following night.
