When ACA invades WIN News

johnboy 2 October 2010 4

It was a terrible moment last night. We tuned into WIN at 6.30 to see the delightful Danielle Post and instead Tracy Grimshaw was doing a story about meat!

We looked at our watches, we checked our clocks, we feared what sort of catastrophe could have lead to the whole news bulletin being cancelled!

And then the image cut over to the underway news bulletin and sighs of relief were heard across Canberra.

“canberratelevision” kindly captured the moment for YouTube.

I’m not sure what happened to the local news? the late edition is all the south coast!

A Current Affair goes to air live at 6:30PM in the other capital cities. WIN records it and shows it at 7PM in order to show WIN News at 6:30. Someone at master control simply forgot to switch the Channel Nine feed going to air off at the end of Nine News and over to WIN News which had begun but was not going to air. Given the frequency of stuffups at WIN – mostly concerning their news – I’m surprised this doesn’t happen a lot more often.

Not sure if anyone noticed but later in the night, they ran the wrong late edition bulletin. I believe it was the South Coast edition.

I would think this all has something to do with the new play-out facility that Win and ABC now share in Sydney. People may recall the evening before Kevin Rudd was toppled, the ABC cut into programming with live coverage from Chris Uhlmann here in Canberra. Viewers in most states got the whole thing live except here in the ACT and NSW where the pre-recorded content froze, rewound, froze again and then the live feed kicked in.
