Monday 24 November 1975 — MELBOURNE

In the wake of recent political events in Canberra and with an election campaign now in progress as a result, ATV0 becomes the first Melbourne channel to launch a regular one-hour newscast, Eyewitness Newshour. The format is short-lived, however, and the channel reverts Eyewitness News back to a half-hour format two months later.

All four channels broadcast the Australian Labor Party’s election speech by Gough Whitlam at 8.30pm. (The Liberal-National Country Party’s election speech by caretaker Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser was broadcast across all four channels at 8.30pm the following night)
