Happy New Year from 1974!

Happy New Year from the stars of the 0-10 Network, as featured on the front cover of Woman’s Day (25 cents!) for its preview of the network’s 1974 television season:

  • Garry Meadows, host of game show The Price Is Right
  • Bettina Welch, Joe Hasham, Pat McDonald, Ron Shand and Elaine Lee from Number 96
  • Former A Current Affair host Mike Willesee, moving across from Nine to 0-10 as network director of news and current affairs and to host his own weekly interview series, The Willesee Show.
  • Mike Walsh, host of The Mike Walsh Show
  • Pop stars Johnny Farnham and Colleen Hewett, hosting their own variety series, It’s Magic, in 1974.
  • Vanessa Leigh, star of the new adults-only drama The Box.

Also included in the four-page television preview are new US titles The Waltons and Kojak and less memorable imports Tenafly, The Snoop Sisters, The Rookies and Chase.

And there is a reason why most of our front page stars are wearing the same design jumper… Woman’s Day has the knitting pattern so that readers can make their own!
