NITV - Programs and Schedules

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f6b3c1032a0>

###Programs, scheduling information and discussion for NITV, National Indigenous Television.

Previous forum thread: National Indigenous TV

Relaunch and new NITV logo coming soon.


Is that meant to coincide with the launch of both League Nation Live and their new current affairs program The Point? The latter is meant to be hosted by Stan Grant but that seems less likely each day now due to the talk of him becoming a politician

and doesn’t he host 4 days a week on Sky News too?

Found this from a quick Google search:


yuck, they ditch a very decent and authentic logo for that trash made in 2 mins by some graphic designer.


On an equal measure of random is the choice of background for that pic.

Because nothing screams indigenous like Brisbane’s CBD.


With the launch of 7flix and the new HD channels this week, it seems the on air introduction of the new NITV branding has gone by unnoticed.

Am I correct in saying the rebrand happened last night? Hadn’t noticed a change on the NITV social media accounts until then.




So what’s the logo supposed to represent? A flower, a dancer, the Sydney Opera House? A mixed-up SBS?

I think it’s meant to represent a fire. Previous packages have been based around fires. It has special meaning to Aboriginals and a lot of their art shows this.

Edit: The start of the logo animation in the ident pretty much confirms this.

The Ten HD thread gets some ridiculous amount of replies within hours yet this relaunch seems to have fallen flat on its face here. Not many people interested in NITV?

I’d be asking PR at NITV what’s up there.


I quite like that new logo. Will have to check out how the rest of the on air look is.

Marngrook Footy Show returns to NITV

Celebrating their 10th season, the team from Australia’s most unique football program return to NITV next Thursday, March 24. And they’re ready to discuss all those burning AFL questions, like only they can.

The country’s favourite all-Indigenous TV show celebrating everything AFL, Marngrook Footy Show is back for a 10th successful season. Combining all-star interviews and in-depth analysis , your hosts Grant Hansen, Gilbert McAdam, Leila Gurruwiwi, Chris Johnson and Shelley Ware are gearing up to return to the Marngrook desk to bring you the latest in footy news.

Opening the series, Western Bulldogs player Lauren Arnell talks about the exciting growth of the women’s competition and her work helping to set up a women’s team at Carlton Football Club for the 2017 season. In the second episode, Essendon’s David Zaharakis, Hawthorn’s Sam Mitchell and Western Bulldogs’ Marcus Bontempelli are in the studio to chat about all the action from the first week’s clashes.

As always, the panel will be joined by some rad live music acts, showcasing Australia’s best emerging talent, alongside music legends.

NITV’s proud of Marngrook Footy Show’s commitment to recognising the huge contribution made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders throughout the history of AFL and the significant representation of Indigenous players in the present day. If you haven’t been acquainted with the top-rating sports show that embraces Australia’s diverse multicultural society – what are you waiting for?

I like the new logo.

An NITV relaunch in HD would get a lot more interest. :slight_smile:

Bush to Belly - Wednesday 13 April, 7.30pm
Narrated by Deborah Mailman, Bush to Belly is the life-affirming adventure of the ‘Bush to Belly Cafe’ in the Australian outback: serving the best coffee for hundreds of kilometres for adventurous, caffeine-loving cyclists on one of the gnarliest mountain bike rides on the planet - the 700 km Gibb Challenge. It follows the journey of a group of Indigenous kids from Yiyili, who take their Italian espresso machine on the Gibb River Rd, making coffees for 600 bike riders. Witnessing the highs and lows of mobile café life - bull dust, bikes and rich cultural exchange, it’s a story of engagement through laughter and lattes, that’s empowering one of the most remote communities on earth.

One Mob to CGEN - Sunday 17 April, 7.30pm

Mentored by some of Australia’s finest dancers from the Bangarra Dance Theatre, the students create a dance based on a story from their Elders, representing rekindling and reconnection with their culture, their community and their people. Their symbolic journey culminates with a performance for thousands live on stage and for a national television audience as part of the Creative Generation – State Schools Onstage spectacular (CGEN), presented by the Queensland Government.
