^ Well, Seven and Ten were both in financial ruins in the early 1990s while Nine survived. Can anyone explain that?

Some people just don't understand the repercussions this has on the employees at nine. Think about those that have families etc. Seriously? You want to 'see' how a network reacts for funs and dont give a crap about the employees and share buyers. Sorry this is a very immature comment with no thought!!!!

Indeed. Regardless of the rampant fanboyism from all sides I don't understand how somebody (unless you work for the competition, but even then thats utter contempt for your media colleagues) could want to see them in administration.

Agree. A senseless comment that is absolutely not warranted.

I think if worse case scenario happens, then Nine will sell stations to pay back some of the debt that is needed before they go in recievership. I think both NBN and NTD should be sold off.

They should sell TCN, GTV and QTQ.

Ticketek will be sold first, for around $600 million. http://www.theaustra...j-1226337500059

At this stage WIN seems the only logical buyer of any Nine stations, but can't see the Gordons paying a premium.

IIRC they're pretty close to the 75% coverage rule already.

Which is why there shouldn't be one. It's a stupid law which benefits no-one.

A Celebrity Roast revival could be on the cards for Nine.

Hope so. With that Charlie Sheen Roast, I couldn't remember the last time I laughed out loud so much during a show.

I don't know if this thread is the right place to discuss a future drama series. Gallipoli is one of three new dramas announced by Nine today. It will be made by John Edwards (Tangle, Offspring, Howzat! Kerry Packer's War, Beaconsfield) and will air in 2015 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing by the Anzacs. I just wonder why Nine announced it now? Is it because it will take at least a year to film and for post production (CGI effects?). Could that be Nine's answer to The Pacific, the big budget World War II series produced by HBO, Dreamworks and Channel Seven?

Probably just wanted to get the jump on the other networks who may have been considering making a similar series in 2015.

Nine have done a Gallipolli mini-series before, in 1985. It was called Anzacs and had a massive cast of well known Aussie actors including Paul Hogan in a supporting role.

^ Jon Blake, who was severely disabled in a car crash in 1986 (he died in 2011), was also in Anzacs.
