About 90% of info in the Media Spy in box is in that format i.e. October 10th etc. Also seems to be preferred by TV stations for promos and watermarks. I adjust the media releases to the Australian Govt standard when posting program times, premiere dates etc.
As mentioned in the Nine News Content & Appearance thread last night, Sophie Walsh last night did a pre-recorded segment for Sydney’s news which looked looking at all the locations (even Fiji, Tonga & New Zealand) Harry & Megan will be visiting during the tour.
True to form, Nine News Sydney went all out for the graphics:
Mainly so they can be in town Invictus Games as per @eddel, but I agree that October 19 & 21 probably could’ve been better used to visit other locations of Australia (remembering how William & Kate attended both during their April 2014 tour of Australia, perhaps Canberra and/or Uluru?) while still being in Sydney for the start & end of the Invictus Games.
Either way, the Australian media will probably be much more interested in the Royal Tour than the general public is. Aside from hearing about what the coverage is like, I don’t really care anyway.
The Opening Ceremony is on 20 October, that is probably why they are spending more than one night in Sydney. Harry is I’m guessing attending other functions during the day in the lead up to the Opening.
