    We are looking for a television show that aired in the 1974 – 1976 period in Perth. WA. It was a afternoon television show of various content that had a music segment in which local artists performed live. Is it possible to find the name of that show or get a TV guide relevant to that time.

    Our problem is that we do not know if it was a weekday or weekend show or what channel it was aired on.

    I have been trying to find this information since the death of my husband, who appeared on this show, singing Annies Song (by John Denver). We are looking to get a copy of his performance for his children.

    If you have any information which could assist us in finding the name of this show or direct us to someone who would know it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Andrew B

      Hi Carol

      Unfortunately I am not aware of the program you are seeking, however you may have better luck browsing the WA TV History website which is a very detailed account of TV history in Western Australia

    Hey

    I’m searching for an American comedy series shown on sbs circa 2001 on Friday nights at about 11:30pm.
    It was about three guys in an apartment that would always order pizza. They would attempt to intervene with the smooth delivery so it would arrive more than 30 minutes after their order so it would be free.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Regards, Greg

    In 1995 SBS showed a cricket documentary on cricket in India. Can someone remember what it was called? I recall that it was part of a series where they covered how sports play an important role in many countries, including soccer in Brazil. I know it was nearly 20 years ago, but wondering if anyone remembers and can tell me what it was called?

  4. jody

    hi from jody i am looking for copshop dvds can you help?

    jody

    1. Andrew B

      refer to Crawfords DVD store

  5. Luke Puser

    When will be getting more classic tv guides please?

    1. Andrew B

      Soon. I’m currently in the process of migrating the existing guides (above) to the WordPress platform. So far the Victorian, NSW/ACT and Queensland listings are done. It’s a slow process as they are being done one at a time, but once they are all done then new listings will be added.

  6. Luke Puser

    Cheers Andrew-great to hear…wandering if there are any “guides” for regional Victoria 83-84 era.

    1. Andrew B

      Not in the current pipeline but never say never.

  7. Damien

    Hi, I am trying to find some tv shows that where on in Melbourne during winter in 2004 on a Thursday night I cant find TV guides that go that far back, our family used to sit around and look forward to tv on a Thursday night but none of us can remember what it was,could you help me try and find it?

    1. Andrew B

      Hi Damien, perhaps some more detail as to the program you’re looking for?

  8. andrew

    what year did channel seven show a children’s program called the yellow house I think it was around 1976-77

  9. andrew

    you noticed on the ABC at 6:55pm there is a music program in the regional areas local news is shown instead

  10. andrew

    interesting to see that in 1981 channel nine Adelaide had its own version of Hey Hey its Saturday

  11. Neil Forbes

    Curious to see Brian & The Juniors seemed to be a Melbourne-only show in the mid-to-late 1960s, going from (nominal) 30 minutes to 1-hour sometime between 1965 and 1968. The show was the fore-runner to Young Talent Time, and 6 of the former show’s cast formed the first YTT “team” in April,1971. Two more former Juniors would join later in ’71, one of whom would be the music director at the end of the latter’s run in 1988, Do I need to name them? Okay, the first 6 were Debbie(now Debra) Byrne, Rod Kirkham, Jane Scali, Jamie Redfern, Vicki Broughton, Philip Gould. The additional members were Greg Mills(the boy who became MD toward the end of YTT’s run) and the sadly, deceased Julie Ryles, whom we lost to(I believe) brain cancer in 2011. Another former Juniorwho took over from Jamie Redfern when he was whisked away to the USA by Liberace in 1972, was Trevor Hindmarch. Jamie’s brother, Derek was Rod Kirkham’s replacement in 1973, paired with a cute little 8-year-old Sally Boyden who took over from Vicki Broughton who was already 18-years-old when the show resumed for 1973.(she’s two months older than I am!) Vicki was born in February, 1955, Rod in October of that year. Brian & The Juniors started as a radio show titled Swallows Juniors, held that name as it migrated from radio to TV in the late 1950s(one member became Mrs. Bert Newton – any guesses?….come on, you know who it was! Patti McGrath, of course!) When the biscuit company sponsorship crumbled, the show became Brian & The Juniors, giving some prominence to the host, the late Brian Naylor, HSV’s newsreader, later for GTV. Brian & The Juniors folded in 1970, YTT started the following year.

    1. Andrew B

      There is an article re: Brian And The Juniors here

  12. Neil Forbes

    Well, I thought it was Melbourne-only when seeing the Classic TV guides but NBN-Newcastle did carry the show, though only sporadically. They treated it as “filler” for when they didn’t have anything else for a given afternoon timeslot. Also NBN couldn’t have had too many editions available, because I’d lost count of how many times I’d seen Rod Kirkham perform the Marty Wilde song “Abergavenny”. Even back then Jamie Redfern was attracting attention for his abilities. They chose him in 1968 to help Station HSV-Melbourne demonstrate colour TV during Moomba that year. Jamie was about to, or had just turned 11 years old. His birthday is 9th April and he was born in 1957(I remember that from all the press interest in him from 1971 to 1974). I wasn’ aware that Ernie Sigley had been a Swallows Junior. That’s a surprise to me and an extra point on your scorecard, Andrew… good one!

  13. andrew

    lived in Newcastle at a very young age I do recall NBN showed the magic circle club can you confirm that Neil ?

    1. Neil Forbes

      Sorry, Andrew, not quite sure! Back then NBN was already closely associating itself with TCN, who had Humphrey Bear as their children’s TV “mascot”. Magic Circle came out of either TEN or ATN, so I don’t think it got a look-in on NBN, but if you think it WAS on NBN, then the Classic Guides for NSW might tell you. If it was a weekday or weekend show, take a look at a Saturday or Monday-to-Friday sample from around the period you think it might’ve been, and see if it was listed.

  14. andrew

    when did the ABC stopped using the test pattern between programs to my memory it must been mid to late eighties because I always liked listening to Switched on Bach by Walter Carlos every time it came on

  15. andrew

    ahh yes the sunday stereo special on the ABC even though stereo (stereovision) was in the newer model televisons at the time most people would still have mono sets

    1. Andrew B

      These programs were often simulcast on ABCFM, making the stereo component more accessible

  16. andrew

    remembers staying in Sydney in 1984 watched the empire strikes back on channel ten the soundtrack simulcast on radio those were the days

  17. andrew

    I believe adventure island is on DVD that be a nostalgic look

  18. andrew

    its interesting how channel seven had its logo in 1969 before the seven and circle logo from 1970 to 1999

  19. andrew

    Pat McGrath at the age of 21 became one of the dancers on the ABC Television’s Dig We Must hosted by singing duo bobby and laurie

  20. andrew

    two years after the cancelation of the TV series Hotel Channel Ten try it again with prisoner they made 13 episodes but due to huge viewer response it became an instant hit and stayed on channel ten until 1986

  21. Neil Forbes

    Could I possibly make a little suggestion here, we have two Andrews, one being this website’s owner/moderator, and the other being a contributing poster, like myself. Might I suggest that each ad the initial of his surname, that we may tell the difference between owner/moderator and contributing poster?

    1. andrew

      cant reverse the process Neil the name is stuck

      1. Andrew B

        You should be able to specify a new name the next time you place a comment?

  22. andrew

    you noticed between 3-6pm it was general viewing time slot how times have changed

  23. AndrewG

    Can you please upload classic TV Guides from 12 May 2002 (Melbourne), 15 July 2003 (Brisbane), 19 July 2003 (Brisbane) and 1 January 2000 – the first full day of the new millennium (Melbourne & Brisbane) please?

    1. Neil Forbes

      A correction, 2000 was the LAST year of the old(20th) century and thus the old millennium, the NEW millennium and century started on 1st January, 2001. It was because the old(now defunct) Electronics Australia magazine proclaimed in its January 2000 editorial, the start of the new millennium, a year too early, that I gave up buying the magazine. That premature proclamation had blown the magazine’s credibility to smitherines as far as I was concerned.

      1. AndrewG

        Neil, are you going to upload the classic TV Guides (including the day that Mornings with Kerri-Anne begins in 2002) that I just said earlier?

          @Andrew G, As Andrew B. said, this isn’t my website! I have no access to such material. All I have is fond memories of the “halcyon days” of Aussie television”. Andrew B., the website’s owner/moderator, is the one with the ready resources to put this site together and I wholeheartedly congratulate you on your effort, Andrew B.!

          1. AndrewG

            @Brendon Agpasa, Laurie Dennis was the 2nd winner on the Mega Showcase on The Price Is Right. Marisa Tamboro was the 1st winner on the Mega Showcase.

  24. AndrewG

    Can you please upload classic TV Guide from 28 October 2002 (the day that Mornings with Kerri-Anne begins at 9:30am on Channel 9) please?

  25. Andrew M

    remembers when Stereovision was launched daytime host announced it and remembers watching a segment with Michael Winslow from the police academy movies he did the sound effect of the ball hitting the racket as yours truly didn’t have a Stereo Television at the time so I guess the sound effect of the ball went left,right,right left and so on

  26. Andrew M

    interesting and yes I do remember this it was common until the early eighties I think that the ABC used play its test pattern three times a day

  27. Andrew M

    remembers watching the ABC back in the seventies which was a very useful tool for school education wise and I was wondering why did the ABC had so many breaks (test pattern) during the day I think this practise stopped in the eighties

    1. Neil Forbes

      Those big gaps in ABC-TV transmissions, filled with test card and music were most likely because ABC simply didn’t have enough programme content to fill those gaps.

  28. Andrew M

    has the TV Week Guide NSW edition January 1977 of WIN and NBN if anyone Is interested seeing one day program listing of those stations

  29. AndrewG

    Thanks for the 1st January 2000 TV guides! 🙂 Can you also please upload the 2000 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony on 1 October 2000 please.

  30. AndrewG

    Hi, I’m trying to find out the name of a show that used to be on every year before Christmas in the late 80’s in sydney. It was about a girl that was in an orphanage or with a relative. I’ll know the name when I see it. I have been trying to find a tv guide for this time but have had no luck. Can you maybe direct me to where I might be able to try and look.

    Thanks

    1. AndrewG

      I think it’s “Christmas Comes But Once a Year”.

  37. Jeff B

    Hi there. I’m doing some research on The Beatles Tour of Australia commencing in Sydney on 11th June 1964 at 7:43am – when the plane landed. There is some evidence that ATN-9 and HSV-7 were going live-to-air in Sydney with the arrival, and that it was being fed down the co-axial to GTV-9 Melbourne.

    Is there anything in the TV/newspaper schedules that confirms this? I do know that there was a telecast of edits at 9:30am on 7 Brisbane, repeated at 1:00pm – but did it go live in Sydney and Melbourne?

    Many thanks for any information.

    1. oldnewsaus

      unfortunately there’s no SMHs from june 1964 on Google News at all, they may require a trip to a state library.

    I have found an Australian “TV Times” cover for the short lived TV series “Arcade”, depicting a wedding photo of two of the characters in the show . Can I download this cover to this site?

      Hi Rocky I already have that magazine. It may get featured on the site at a later stage

      Novak:

      The Delegation showed in Melbourne and Canberra, and I dare say everywhere else that had SBS. See links below

    I remember watching The Banana Splits Show as a kid but cannot seem to find it by browsing the TV guides. Can anyone tell me when and for how long it screened in Australia and on which station?

    Hello
    Could you please tell me the name of a music video show shown in between tv programmes as a “time filler”in the early ’80s on Channel 10 in Melbourne? I believe it was called Rockfile but can’t find any web info. I would also like to know what exact time in the afternoon it was shown
    Thank you.

    1. Andrew B

      I’m thinking “Rock Profile”? It was shown at various times I guess just whenever there was a random few minutes to be filled

    Can u please upload the following TV Guides please:
    * 13 June 2000 (Wheel of Fortune celebrates 4000 episodes)
    * 6 July 1998 (Wheel of Fortune airs a week of live-to-air episodes) – here’s the brief for that reason, this allowed the home viewers to call in and play the game with the studio contestants.
    * 15 July 1996 (Tony Barber becomes the host of Wheel of Fortune)
    * 12 July 1996 (John Burgess retires Wheel of Fortune as a host since 1984)

    I’ve just published a delightful short film about Yvonne Melville, a woman who produced and distributed TV guides in the 1960s. I wonder how many small business owners produced TV guides around the country?

    Search ABC Open’s website, ‘Was tele better in the 60s?’ for Yvonne’s story.

    I heard that nobody in Australia ever saw a TV Special taking place in Disneyland on Disney Channel Australia starring The Wiggles. Does anybody know what time it was on?
