Following on from seeing an old 1982 goof tape from Capital 7 Ozhair has been inspired to YouTube a WIN goof tape from 1996.

Proof if needed that every news camera man yearns to make movies.

Interesting to see faces that have moved on (Rani Saddler), and others still there (Phil Small).

Glenn Osbourne is the bloke who does SBS sport now.

Remember there’s also Sam Armytage from WIN.

Very funny!

Rahni Sadler, Sue Fitzpatrick, Tamara Pooley and Jo Elsom (Prime) back when bob hair styles were popular and hair spray was added until solid.
Perhaps George can upload one of the Prime TV Goof tapes?

Well done Ozhair, looking forward to your first feature.

Is there anyone who overacts and overannunciates in TV journalism that Rani Sadler?

And, was/is there anyone more slightly oddway than Tony Lynas?

Speaking of which, I’m pretty sure I recognise the goofball making the rabbit ears behind him in that clip. The guy was a cameraman with Prime, I thought, but he probably worked for WIN as well. He’s a good bloke anyway and being a cameraman has taken him all over the world.

It’s interesting to go back and see the people who graduated from the local news bulletins up to the national ones, there’s been lots of them lot. Can’t think of them off the top of my head except for, Peter Stefanovic (Channel 9) and one of the young guys from WIN news I recently noticed covering the sport for SBS world news.

Funny seeing the Lib parliamentarians too from the era – and only 12 years ago! boy I miss those trees in Civic Square – it is much more sterile now just with paving.

ya wonder why no-one would watch win?

LOL. Great footage all the same!

Yup. It actually took out the Ten camera guy behind the camera, breaking both his legs. Not WIN footage as such, but I didn’t edit that “bingle” segment.

BerraBoy68, that rally car would have been from when the Canberra Rally had a quick stage over that side of LBG. Only lasted 1 or 2 years if I remember correctly.
