Tonight on 7.30 ACT

By johnboy - 15 March 2013 5

This just in from our friends at the ABC who are keen to point out they’ve been doing very many positive stories about Canberra’s history.

    7.30 ACT Friday March 15th

    1. The Birthday – a film made by Jim Trail featuring most of the highlights of Canberra Day celebrations

    2. The Foundation Day – 1913 – officiated by Lord and Lady Denman – David Headon tells the story of the Denmans and why the vice royals were so popular with the people and the Labor pollies.

    3. Seed Search – an intrepid group set out into the Tinderrry ranges to look for rare plant seeds to propagate at the Botanical Gardens. After lots of diversions along the way – they strike gold ( actually it’s purple)

    Closer fabulous pics of the celebrations and the balloons by cameraman Greg Nelson … ending with one by our own Adam Shirley which has gone global. (Reddit and Huffington Post amongst others)

I’m not sure that Q&A would come to Canberra – a place were the general populace is very well paid and mostly works in or on the periphery of politics. We understand how it works (twice over given it’s host to two seats of government), and we are therefore apathetic in our voting habits. We have nothing to add. We are happy campers.

They’ve been before. Filmed at Old parliament House.

That’s why I wrote, ‘I think they’ve been before’.

Last night’s closing pics were lovely.

As to Q&A, I think it is turning into the Tony Jones Show, with the others seemingly there to make up the numbers. When Julie Bishop appeared recently, she hit the nail on the head by responding to one of Tony’s obviously carefully honed zingers with words to the effect of “how long have you been waiting to say that” – the response was a naughty boy smile. If/when Q&A does a debate on communications policy, with Conroy and Turnbull (won’t that be fun), perhaps they could bus in a contingent from the Canberra adult industry to question and heckle about the impact of high speed broadband on video sales.

It would be interesting to see if the audience stats are totally different here though. Any episode I catch these days is heavily weighted towards the Coalition.

I think they came here once when it first started. Must have been an underwhelming experience.

… which I well appreciate… but it is mainly tailored to a local audience. How much does the general populace know about Canberra’s centennial? They probably don’t care, but at least the effort should be done. Is Canberra Confidential the only way the ABC will mark the centennial? I e-mailed the producers of Q&A suggesting they might have a show here in Canberra, but as yet I haven’t heard from them.
