SBS Viceland - Programs and Schedules

I notice that SBS Viceland is airing old episodes of The Movie Show with Margaret and David in a morning timeslot (double episodes from 11:00am). The second episode airing today appears to be from 2001. How long have these been airing?

Who Killed the KLF?

Sat, 21 Jan 09:30 PM

Who Killed the KLF? explores the history of the band sometimes known as the KLF, a band whose enigmatic output made them both darlings and pariahs of modern music.

Not shying away from personal backstories, unseen archival footage gives us an insight into Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty’s backgrounds and the burgeoning events that made the KLF so bizarre - the band who completely undermined the music industry in such a daring way.

Good find, they were a great pair across ABC and SBS.

Recently, The Movie Show has aired in the middle of the night on SBS World Movies (pretty much as a filler).

Glad that it’s airing as double episodes on a daily basis - even if it is at the 11am slot. Not sure how long when it started airing in that slot. ’

I miss my weekly viewing of David and Margaret.

Tales From The Territories

From Sunday 29 January 9:30 PM

From Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and the creators of Dark Side of the Ring comes an exhilarating new series that brings real life wrestling legends together to relive their most jaw-dropping stories from in and out of the squared circle.

Tales from the Territories chronicles the territory-based days of wrestling, dominated by unscrupulous bookers, rabid fans and fearless wrestlers who blurred the lines between fiction and reality both inside and outside of the ring.

Are M rated shows now allowed to air in the early evening ? Shortland St was rated M last night at 5.15pm .

Not allowed on commercial networks but allowed on SBS apparently.

The new Code commences from December 1, 2015. It does not apply to the SBS, ABC or Foxtel channels.

Interesting so if FTA had the rights they would not be allowed to air it then.

Off the back of the incredible success of his memoir and two new albums, Stan Walker: Impossible Live weaves kōrero and waiata in an intimate setting, as Stan shares his journey in honour & celebration of Matariki. Recorded in front of an intimate live studio audience, Stan reflects on pivotal moments of his life (some moving, some hilarious, all of them honest) entwining words with waiata and taking the audience on an extraordinary journey of whānau, aroha, redemption and the power of forgiveness.

Celebrity Jeopardy! is aired on ABC America and doesn’t air in Australia at all

An SBS spokesperson told TV Tonight, “SBS VICELAND originally acquired 250 episodes of Shortland Street for the 2022 season, which only produced 240 episodes.

“As a result, we still had an extra 10 episodes to play out between 23rd Jan – 3rd Feb.

I dont qatch shortland street myselupf but could turn up on another aussie channel like seven two again

So Shortland Street (once again) struggles to find an Australian broadcaster.

Was tonight’s Jeopardy a repeat of the Colleges Special from a few weeks ago?

Seems Shortland St is on Youtube…not sure if that is legal…

Maybe Stan or Amazon should pick it up…

Why can’t a free to air channel just pick it up and air it late night then if ratings are the reason (apparently i read on a Facebook group someone rang SBS and was told it was because of ratings ) It would count as Australian content would it not ?

commercial networks are not going to go to the trouble of buying up rights if they don’t think they can make a profit from it. IIRC the obligations to air Australian drama content have been watered down/reduced/obliterated since COVID.

ABC and SBS have both had runs of the series over the years and clearly they’ve not been able to justify the cost either for the numbers that it must have been getting.
