We’re really not trying to be all things to all people at the same time. Just skip the stories that don’t interest you.

We would, on the other hand, be very happy to become the de facto TV guide for locally produced content.

A lot of people DO want to know what’s on Stateline this week.

If we’d had 15 good stories of our own today and running a Stateline alert would have meant canning one of our own then I’d have a long hard think about it.

But I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

cool, I can do that. look forward to enforcer-like appearances (not to be confused with terrorist-like) on Camelvision. The as a ‘person of note in the ACT community’ I might be chosen for the next Transact advertising campaign.

For those that don’t remember ‘the enforcer’ cast your mind back to ‘Recovery’ on the ABC in the mid to late nineties.

Bulldog will be one of the resident social commentators on Camelvision…

No time to watch it when you’re on it…

bulldog 2:17 pm 07 Oct 05

uhhh…..not really.

terubo 2:08 pm 07 Oct 05

Yeah, Bulldog, like watching Camelvision?

For Montague island will they touch on the NSW State govt proposal to ban recreational boats from going out there?

So that the only people allowed to go near the island are commercial fishing, whale-watching or commercial diving boats?

At the moment your aren’t allowed to land on the island, no worries, as all the fun stuff is in the water, the grey nurse sharks, the NZ and Australian Fur Sea Lions (not seals) and all sorts of other cool stuff

but if the state govts proposal get up you won’t be allowed to go out there in your own boat at all, and there will extra costs involved with going diving out there

so I hope its not just a puff piece

Cam; I am bothered as well, but it’s not my blog. However given that this is a free platform for us to air our observations, gripes and opinions I won’t complain. I also won’t watch stateline becasue there are far better things to be doing when it airs.

Rather this than ads for ‘Playschool’.

Thumper 1:52 pm 07 Oct 05

Doesn’t worry me, I’ve got better things to do than watch Stateline, althoug they did have a good story about the wastage of funds by ESA for a volunteer do.

I must add that my unit voted against the use of funds in this way.

Cameron 1:31 pm 07 Oct 05

Am I the only one bothered by these ads for Stateline hitting RA every week?

Perhaps they might like to interview Deb Foskey, who whilst living in poverty, by living in a Public House, has managed to amass interstate properties and is tenatiously holding onto her job as a MLA. And no, the M doesn’t stand for McDonalds.
