Come to think of it, they could’ve used the old Today Tonight desk had Naomi Robson made it to the Grand Final of DWTS in the first half of 2007.
I seem to recall an interview prior to the 1993 election where Mike Willesee was in the studio and Paul Keating was at Parliament House, which had this same setup. I was of the impression that setting up your interviewer/interviewees was quite a common thing that has fallen out of favor, although I could be wrong.
The other good example I can think of (and can link to) is Richard Carleton in Canberra interviewing Bob Hawke in Brisbane: Bob Hawke labels Carleton "a damned impertinence" | ABC News - YouTube
I remember just happening to be at the Flinders Street steps while they were filming that scene with David Johnston, though i think it was for a news promo a few years earlier. I do seem to recall they did a lot of takes just for a few seconds of footage!
With the NSW election coming up, I was wondering if anyone had the NSW election ad/PSA from 2003 which was very catchy. It went along the lines of:
“It’s your day to have your say…you’ve got a point of view, it’s up to you, on election day…March 22!”
I reckon that would’ve been one of the last local 10 promos we would see in Melbourne.
Once on Sunrise in 2005, before Kochie’s “Joke of the Day” (which was discontinued in 2006) Seven would air (what would appear to be) a mock (M) classification screen. Can anyone remember what the joke was about? It definitely wasn’t the one that involved John Howard, which led to the segment being discontinued.
