This logo was used by HSV-7 during its test phase. So this could’ve been the station’s first on-air logo, but not the first one used in print.

Going Home was mentioned in the other thread.

Great little show.

I remember watching that regularly. Was a good show. Still see a few of the people pop up in different ads and roles at times.

I’d love to think this means a “Sale” return is being considered, but I don’t like my chances.

Only if writers could do some for the other networks (the commercials DO have production closer pages, although Ten’s is incomplete)…

There were credible rumours floating around last year about the possibility of Ten picking up a revived Sale of the Century, but those didn’t go anywhere.

If the Sale of the Century/Temptation format were to ever return to Australian TV, I’d personally hope it would air on Nine.

I’d love a return of Temptation. That show was terrific!

Bring back Temptation as a lead-in to Hot Seat with the afternoon news starting at 3.30pm.

I agree, it wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t on Nine, and I’d really want it to be at 7pm as well.

I couldn’t careless about “A Current Affair”.

That time in 2000 when it was retitled Sale of the NEW Century.

Loved that theme song of Sale in 2000!

I wouldn’t be surprised if they did bring it back. They did something similar with Big Brother and had a reunion and then they announced that Nine was reviving it.
Stranger things have happened!
I hope they do bring it back (even temptation) it was a great show.

As long as a reboot isn’t along the lines of the Price is Right which turned into an ad for Big W.

Anyone recognises this piece of green card? This was taken by a friend who works at a Commercial TV Network where pieces of card like the one featured use to appear on TV each afternoon!

This year is the 60th anniversary of children’s character Mr Squiggle. To celebrate the milestone, the Royal Australian Mint will release a limited edition $2 coin. The coins will be distributed through cash registers at Woolworths across the country from today.

I just watched the first episode of it and holy shit, the amount of big W ads was insane.
