Wednesday 29 July 1981 — SOUTH AUSTRALIA

The day of the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. The event was given saturation coverage on ABC and commercial stations across Australia. ADS7 and GTS4/BKN7 were among the few commercial stations in Australia to provide an alternative to the live coverage — with ADS7 instead playing a John Wayne movie and screening a delayed telecast of the wedding the following day.
