Great but I would change out the PTV late news on new year Eve to a movie or something as the target audience wont be watching

1 Like

@Michael_Eccles Thanks for your suggestion but, on weekends, there are two news bulletins: an early news at 6pm for half an hour and a late news at around 10.30pm for 15 minutes. The late news would be a must-watch for those who missed the early news on the weekend.

There are two New Year’s Eve movies on PTV: the 2008 musical Mamma Mia! (at 7.30pm) and a 1980 classic, Can’t Stop the Music (at 12.30am), with the Village People. The late news would air at the earlier time of 9.50pm and a New Year’s Eve special would follow on that channel (see below), so there are no plans to replace the late news with another New Year’s Eve movie.

Three New Year’s Eve specials would be planned.

My dream network’s main channel, PTV, would air its own New Year’s Eve special at 10.05pm. Jesse Mulligan and guests would host an extended midnight Hogmanay celebration with live music,
interviews and outside studio link-ups to field reporters at New Year’s Eve celebrations around the country.

For the younger generation, i.e. 18-39 year olds, Shake would air a non-stop music party from 10.50pm until closedown at 3am. The music party would be broadcast live from Aum New Year’s Festival, just north of Auckland, and feature a mix of special guest appearances and the best of music videos of 2022 as requested by viewers.

And at around 11.55pm, all PTV Network channels would carry live pictures of the New Year’s Eve fireworks from Auckland’s Sky Tower.

New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday and to welcome the New Year in style, GEM would celebrate the 50s & 60s including the music, fashion, dancing and culture with an all-day marathon of movies and TV specials devoted to those eras. The marathon would start at 12.05am on New Year’s Day and include such titles as American Hot Wax (1978), Cry-Baby (1990), Grease (1978), Great Balls of Fire! (1989) and The Beach Boys: The Lost Concert (1964), plus the feature-length Miss Viva Las Vegas documentary, Bombshells and Dollies (2020).

Not in 2022 it’s not. People get their news from online sources if they miss a bulletin. Why wait around?

Not a dig at the content but how is it relevant to the New Year?

This is also showing on TVNZ 1

@foxyrover The news is available online and via mobile apps but, from my point of view, some people may struggle with the technology and prefer the simplicity of watching it on television - just like the British. For instance, BBC One and ITV1 (in real life) screen an early evening bulletin and a late bulletin on the weekend.

GEM is usually targeted at the baby boomer market and has a particular focus on British dramas and comedies, classic movies, documentaries and factual and arts programmes.

For the benefit of fans of rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly, GEM would devote its entire New Year’s Day schedule to a 50s & 60s themed marathon of movies and one-off specials, known as the New Year’s Rockin’ Day Marathon and similar to that of the annual Whangamata Beach Hop, as an effort to welcome the New Year. Sometimes, the inclusion of that marathon may prove unpopular with the channel’s target audience, who ask for regular programming to be reinstated.

I know Paddy, I was just disputing the “must watch for those who missed the last bulletin” statement.

CHANGES TO DAYTIME PROGRAMMING

It’s the start of 2023 and due to unforeseen circumstances, PTV Network New Zealand (as a fictional broadcaster) is making changes to its daytime programming.

The hit US daytime soaps (General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful) would move to their new homes on Peach, the home of female-skewed entertainment, factual, lifestyle and reality programming. All four of which would screen back to back every weekday.

In their places, US talk shows Dr Phil, The Talk and The Drew Barrymore Show would move to PTV along with Entertainment Tonight and reruns of Judge Judy.

Local productions After Nine (formerly The Morning Break) and What’s Cooking? would be part of the 2023 lineup, but PTV Network New Zealand would produce two new local programmes for daytime viewing on PTV (at 1pm and 3.30pm respectively; see below) and increase the number of New Zealand faces on-screen.

PTV News at 11.30am was dropped and replaced by Midday, an hour-long package of lunchtime news, sport, business and weather information. Screening weekdays at 12pm, Midday aims to provide audiences with the latest updates on the big stories of the day along with live reports around the country, newsmaker interviews and in-depth analysis - all of which are drawn on the resources of the PTV News newsroom and international partners via satellite.

Business Day was due to launch as a daily television programme devoted to business and finance but was dropped, although it would be available online via ptvnews.co.nz and the PTV News app as a digital brand.

Business Day would include comprehensive coverage of the latest in business, economic and financial news from New Zealand and around the world; updates on local and world markets, currency movements and the gold price; local business success stories; and in-depth analysis and comment on the issues of interest to the corporate sector. It is intended that live bulletins of business news and market information would appear online, as does the Business Day branded podcasts on a weekly basis such as Business Success and The Small Business Podcast.

The new channel would replace BBC World News (in partnership with BBC Studios) where, in July last year, the BBC made the decision to merge both BBC News (for UK audiences) and BBC World News (for international audiences) as one news network, under the name “BBC News”. The channel, in real life, is set to be launched in April and will include news from both the UK and around the world.

To fill the gap, the PTV News Channel would take its place and begin broadcasting on Sunday 2 April 2023 at 6pm.

It would show live and same-day news bulletins from New Zealand and around the world, including the BBC, ABC, CBS and CNN, along with breaking news and live simulcasts of existing PTV News bulletins as they are broadcast on PTV and GEM.

Unlike all PTV Network channels, the PTV News Channel does not carry live captioning.

From May, PTV News and Current Affairs would produce brand new content for the PTV News Channel - including hourly news bulletins throughout the day and overnight news summaries - live from PTV Network’s Auckland and Wellington studios. The content would draw on the resources of the PTV News newsroom and international partners via satellite.

The channel would be live from 2 April, and its channel specific content would start on 1 May.

why not? captioning is probably more important for a news channel than an entertainment channel.

the new BBC News channel is still a 24/7 news channel, so idk why it’s being replaced.

In New Zealand, we are a small country and don’t have enough money and resources to offer live captioning on the PTV News Channel if it becomes a reality. Live captioning would only be available in PTV News bulletins (in the early morning and at 12pm, 6pm, 8pm and 10.30pm) and current affairs programmes as they are broadcast on PTV and GEM and if the funding is approved, the PTV News Channel would offer live captioning in the future.

When the new BBC News channel begins in April, I had had to make the decision to replace it with a 24-hour news channel that is developed entirely in New Zealand. The channel would draw on the resources of the PTV News newsroom and international partners via satellite - including the BBC, CNN and the American ABC and CBS networks - and have daily news from New Zealand and around the world to keep every news junkie informed and updated.

It is intended that the BBC’s 6pm and 10pm bulletins, as they are broadcast on BBC One in the UK, would be recorded off the satellite and broadcast on the PTV News Channel at 11.30am and 3.30pm (both NZ time) as delayed broadcasts. (In real life, when Sky began broadcasting on 18 May 1990 as New Zealand’s first subscription television service, Sky used to air delayed broadcasts of BBC News bulletins via the Sky News/CNN channel.)

Meanwhile, CBS Evening News would screen on the PTV News Channel at 1.30pm (repeated at 5.30pm) with ABC World News Tonight at 2.30pm (repeated at 6.30pm) while ABC Nightline airs at 9.30pm every Tuesday to Saturday night. All three programmes are recorded off the satellite from the States.

After midnight, the PTV News Channel would carry an overnight feed of CNN International.

That’s all I know.

PTV NEWS NOW

I describe PTV News Now as ‘on the hour, every hour with 30 minute bulletins’.

It is intended that the PTV News Now bulletins would play at the start of each hour from 9am until 11pm on weekdays, and from 6am until 11pm on weekends, plus rolling bulletins between 7am and 9am on weekdays (preceded by a simulcast of PTV Network’s early morning news programme, Early Sunrise, at 5.30am with looped repeats to follow between 6am and 7am).

All PTV News Now bulletins would be divided into two segments with a commercial break in between, plus an additional commercial break at the end of the bulletin. Commercial breaks run for about three minutes each.

For instance, the first half of a typical PTV News Now bulletin would cover the national and international news of the hour, drawing on the resources of the PTV News newsroom and international partners via satellite. After a commercial break (at approx 12 minutes past the hour), the second half would begin with a summary of the main headlines; this would be followed by business and sports news, then a national weather forecast. The bulletin would close with a final headline summary before going to a commercial break (at approx 27 minutes past the hour) and into the next scheduled programme.

Behind the scenes, the PTV News Now bulletins are researched, written, produced and read by a dedicated team of journalists based at PTV Network’s Auckland newsroom. Because of limited resources, the bulletins are scripted from news gathered from a variety of wire sources within PTV Network New Zealand (as a fictional broadcaster).

PTV NEWS OVERNIGHT WITH CNN

After midnight, PTV News Overnight is basically an all-night programme of the latest breaking news and information on world events via a direct satellite feed from CNN International.

To name only a few, overnight programmes from CNN include CNN This Morning (live from Midtown Manhattan), CNN Newsroom with Max Foster (live from London), First Move with Julia Chatterley (business news and market information, live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange) and Connect the World (taking viewers on a sweeping journey across continents, beyond headlines and into the stories that change our world).

In addition, PTV News Overnight would opt out of CNN’s live feed and broadcast short summaries of national news from the PTV News newsroom at the start of each hour from midnight until 5am. Each summary would run for up to five minutes and incorporate the most up-to-the-minute coverage of the top stories that occur in the wee small hours of the morning.

PTV NATIONWIDE: THE BEST OF THE REGIONALS

Every weekday at 10.30am (repeated at 10.30pm), PTV Nationwide: The Best of the Regionals is a half hour compilation of human interest and magazine-style feature stories that have aired on PTV Network’s regional programmes: Look North (Auckland), Waikato Tonight (Hamilton), Bay of Plenty Tonight (Tauranga), Spotlight (Wellington), Mainland Today (Christchurch) and Points South (Dunedin).

The programme is loosely based on WIN Television’s now-defunct All Australian News from Australia and made specifically for a national audience via the PTV News Channel.

SUNRISE EXTRA

Called Sunrise Extra, viewers of the PTV News Channel would be able to see a half hour, highlights version of PTV Network’s weekday breakfast programme, Sunrise - a mix of the headlines, events and interviews. Sunrise Extra would screen at 11.30am every weekday (repeated at 11.30pm).

@greenpea @Michael_Eccles @NuStraya @TV3_NZ What do you think?

I like this concept however having Early Sunrise simulcast and then breaking away to a rolling news service just as the main Sunrise program begins doesn’t make a lot of sense IMO. Maybe a CBS-style approach whereby you’d have two similarly branded shows (eg. Sunrise on PTV and PTV News Sunrise on PTV News Channel) would work better as it would allow the news channel to have a news-centric breakfast program/bulletin of its own and allow for the PTV News Now branding to be used elsewhere throughout the day/night as a ‘flagship’ bulletin brand.

@greenpea I initially created a set of channel specific test cards, loosely based on the BBC’s most famous Test Card F, with audio simulcasts of such MediaWorks radio brands as Today FM, The Edge, Magic and so on. These would be perfect during nightly closedowns.

In real life MediaWorks announced recently that, in an effort to cut costs, up to 90 staff would be laid off, although it is off-topic.

As a result of the shock announcement by MediaWorks, I have a question to ask. Do you want me to replace the test cards with TV Shop infomercials and other paid programme content, such as religious programming/evangelism on Sunday mornings, so that each of the channels (in which I created) can make some money?

That’s all I know.

Whether you replace the test cards network-wide is really up to you @PaddyTePou however, I do have a solution for you that I think might be an adequate compromise and that is to do something similar to BBC Scotland/BBC Alba have done in real life, and run some form of nightscreen instead. You’d still have the option of simulcasting a radio stream or continuing to run programs/promos alongside if you wanted to but it would also offer you the ability to display news summaries, weather outlooks, or even community noticeboards as well.
What do you think?

Thank you for your suggestions, @greenpea.

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, I have decided to keep the test cards but the audio simulcasts of the MediaWorks Radio brands are being replaced by NZME (e.g. Newstalk ZB, ZM, Coast, Radio Hauraki, The Hits, Flava, Gold and Hokonui) and Radio Bay of Plenty/1XX (in Whakatane).

Please note that the audio simulcasts of Newstalk ZB, ZM, Coast, Radio Hauraki, The Hits, Flava and Gold are carried nationally with Auckland feeds, i.e. no localised commercial advertising or region specific information (e.g. local news, weather and traffic). Hokonui carries Southland advertising and content (e.g. Breakfast Southland with Luke Howden) and Radio 1XX is a Whakatane based radio station with ‘live and local’ content from its studios.

LATE CHANGES

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, PTV Network New Zealand (as a fictional broadcaster) is making changes to programming.

PTV

Judge Judy reruns have moved to the earlier timeslot of 1pm. This programme would screen on PTV everywhere - except for viewers in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty where two new regional talk/magazine shows screen in that slot.

Camille Guzzwell, who hosts the breakfast show on The Breeze Waikato, would make her television debut by hosting a new lunchtime talk/magazine show from the Hamilton studios. Called High Noon, the show would feature interviews with local personalities, book and movie reviews, and updates on events from across the heart of the Waikato region in a half hour, magazine-style format.

Meanwhile, The Breeze Tauranga’s Jolene James would host A Chat with Jolene - a talk show that ‘brings the people of Bay of Plenty to your living room on a weekday afternoon’. Each day, Jolene is joined in the Tauranga studios by up to three guests as they talk about and cover a myriad of topics of relevance to the Bay of Plenty - home to Tauranga, Rotorua and Whakatane.

Two new national programmes - Dilemmas and Farm Focus - are planned.

Screening weekdays at 3pm, Dilemmas is a panel show in which experts discuss solutions to problems and dilemmas faced by studio guests and home viewers.

Farm Focus screens every Saturday at 7.30am and is made exclusively for farmers and the rural community. It aims to combine a review of the week’s news from rural New Zealand with studio interviews and field items on agriculture and agribusiness.

5.30am - Early Sunrise
6.00am - Sunrise

4.30pm - Te Hēteri (SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS)

PTV NEWS AT 4PM & TE HĒTERI

PTV Network’s main channel, PTV, would offer viewers a full hour of news, sport, business, weather and Māori news from 4pm every weekday.

PTV News at 4pm is the latest addition to the PTV News weekday offering - live from the Wellington studios. The new half hour bulletin would keep its viewers informed with the latest updates on the developing news stories of the day from New Zealand and around the world, plus a comprehensive business report, sports news and a national weather forecast.

PTV News at 4pm would then be followed at 4.30pm by Te Hēteri for the very latest in Māori news, live from the Auckland studios. It aims to cover Māori issues of national significance and bring a fresh Māori perspective to the important news of the day.

Like the early morning, midday, 6pm and 8pm bulletins, both PTV News at 4pm and Te Hēteri would be simulcast across PTV and the PTV News Channel. For non-Māori speakers, a full replay of Te Hēteri with English subtitles would screen at 5.30pm on GEM, 7.30pm on the PTV News Channel and after midnight on PTV.

PTV NEWS CHANNEL

PTV Network New Zealand is making changes to the schedule of the PTV News Channel (unless interrupted by live feeds of breaking news as the events occur).

PTV Network’s weekday breakfast programmes, Early Sunrise and Sunrise, would be simulcast live across PTV and the PTV News Channel from 5.30-9am.

Early Sunrise begins at 5.30am and provides its early-rising viewers with a concise half hour package of overnight news, sport, business and weather information, plus ‘your need-to-know guide to the big news stories coming up today’. Sunrise follows with three hours of current affairs, interviews with newsmakers, showbiz gossip, entertainment and human interest features, plus the latest news, sport and weather on the half hour, from 6am.

The PTV News Channel would broadcast constantly updated news bulletins on the hour, every hour, from 9am-11pm weekdays and 6am-11pm weekends (except 12pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm weekdays, and 6pm weekends, when existing PTV News bulletins are simulcast live with PTV and GEM respectively - subject to scheduling).

Called PTV News Now, each bulletin runs for 30 minutes and is divided into two halves. The first half of the bulletin begins with the major national and international news of the hour, drawing on the resources of the PTV News newsroom and affiliates via satellite. After a commercial break, the second half begins with a recap of the main headlines; this is followed by an update on the latest in business and finance, sports news and a national weather forecast. The bulletin ends with a final headline recap.

In addition to the full-length bulletins, the PTV News Channel offers shorter, 5-10 minute versions of PTV News Now on the weekend. The short bulletins cover major national and international news stories in brief along with a sports story and a weather forecast for the six main centres (Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin).

The second half of the hour (from 9.30am weekdays and 6.30am weekends), or the remaining 50-55 minutes of the hour, would be given over to timeshifted replays or highlights versions of PTV Network’s existing national current affairs and regional news programmes, as well as delayed broadcasts of international content from the BBC, CBS and ABC America via satellite (e.g. BBC News at Six, BBC News at Ten, CBS Evening News, ABC World News Tonight etc) and the best in New Zealand documentary and factual programming.

After midnight, PTV News Overnight is basically an all-night programme of world news, features and analysis via a direct satellite feed from CNN International. Overnight programmes from CNN include CNN This Morning, CNN Newsroom with Max Foster, First Move with Julia Chatterley and Connect the World to name just a few.

Highlights versions of such CNN programmes as The Lead with Jake Tapper, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Erin Burnett OutFront and Anderson Cooper 360 are all featured in the PTV News Channel’s Sunday schedule (from 8am-12pm).
