Monday 5 February 1973 — MELBOURNE

A pay dispute by television technicians results in strike action, restricting commercial TV programming to start at 4.00pm. ATV0 does make one exception to the restricted hours, the scheduled debut of the afternoon variety show The Mike Walsh Show, direct from Sydney.

ATV0 starts screening Number 96 in one-hour double episodes to catch up to episodes currently screening in Sydney.
