Friday 8 March 1974 — MELBOURNE

Bert Newton hosts the TV Week Logie Awards, live from the Southern Cross Hotel, Melbourne. International guests include Gina Lollobrigida, David Cassidy and MacDonald Carey.

The cast of the 0-10 Network series Number 96 had come from Sydney to Melbourne by train (“The Spirit Of 96”) to attend the Logies, making stops along the way to meet crowds of fans. ATV0 presented a half-hour special in the morning to cover the cast’s arrival at Melbourne’s Spencer Street Station.

ATV0, despite not being the Logies broadcaster, promised a half-hour coverage of the Logie Awards after party at the Southern Cross.
