Apologies for the low volume on the 2009 clips, as that’s how it was recorded

STW9 had the 2000-2005 Nine News music theme being played in 2009. It was a shame that WIN owned Nine Perth and Nine Adelaide. That time, the dots werent reinstated until Mar 2010. Steve Britten was voiceover for Nine News Perth between 2009-2013, saying “THIS IS NINE NEWS”.
Matt Tinney used to be at Nine but he was at Seven.

I was wondering where the CTC7 and ABC3 studios and masts were on Black Mountain prior to the Telstra Tower being built. I managed to find a site plan for the proposed Post Office Tower (this was when the PMG ran the post office, telephone system and the ABC’s transmission infrastructure), in the National Archives database. The two studio sites were turned into car parks.

The last time I drove up there I noticed that one of the concrete blocks that held one of the CTC tower guy-wires is still visible just beside the road.

Edit: Just to add, the then National Capital Development Commission wanted a far more traditional broadcast tower but the PMG wanted a tower that people could visit. After much argument parliament’s Public Works Committee agreed with the PMG.

I believe it was Ten that first put an end to Sunday night movies and provided alternative programming- back when they were the innovators in Australian television and didn’t rely on recycled garbage to attract viewers.

Back in 2004, CSI rated much higher than movies on Nine as well as in its 8:30PM Timeslot. that was the time as a young student, after watching 60 Minutes, I went straight to bed because this show was an M-rated program and consumer advice was mandatory - contains violence, sexual references, adult themes

Talk about movies on TV…

Might not relevant through but in Argentina the two most famous movie programs are “El mundo del espectaculo” and “Cine de trasnoche”, both on Canal Trece. There were also Cine Splash and Cine de medianoche too.

Now these things are just works as filler, #myfriends.

The music was cool, however, from 2001, the show’s intro became intergrated with the channel bumper.

The really sad thing about that video was that the tribute was for the man who did the V/O for the bulletin. It still felt like he was still there, but he wasn’t.

The Big Gig and The Late Show are two of my all-time favourite Australian programs.
