Has Southern Cross in Tassie updated their news look to look either more like the new Ten look or Seven look?

Southern Cross broadcasts a weekly community information segment to each of the seventeen local areas it serves in Regional Queensland; Northern NSW; Southern NSW; and Regional Victoria. It is not state focus so what is it ? ;)

Prime broadcasts a local non-commercial community information (Monday to Friday) and a weekly one-hour rural focus program so what are they ? :o

I tend to agree with you, but Prime and SC Ten would then become justifed to turn State Focus into a 7-days-a-week crap fest. Darwin should have competiting news services, true. I like the idea of taking away licenses away for not complying with the rules.
I'm not a TV mod, but don't post the same information twice.

Maybe, but at least it's local crap fest. It's better than what the other channels are doing currently in regards to local current affairs. I feel sorry for some of those reporters at SX10 who thought they were gonna be doing a proper current affairs program and then their company produced that crap! I guess it's something for their showreels when they graduate to real channels.

Southern Cross should be forced to include a Darwin local news and a weekend edition (at least it's gotta be more local than 7 Brisbane News which is being screened these days). NTD9 should be forced (or at the very least... given insentives) to continue their weekend news.

The weekly community information segment is called "Community Connect". It's just a segment with a voice over talking about local events in the respective local area. It's not anything to write home about.

It's website is available at: http://www.southernc...pagename=cc.htm

Prime's community information segment is called "Infonet". It's presented by Daniel Gibson from their Canberra studios. You need to write to your local Prime TV Station to get anything included on it.

The rural program must be "On The Land", although it's not produced by Prime but they buy the program from a production company. The program doesn't have any 'local' produced segments so I don't know how this is allowed to pass. They also have a Country Music and Wine program on Sundays, this is somehow allowed as well?

My friend at Prime told me that "Prime's Saturday Club" on Saturday Morning is also part of the local quota points system. How or Why? I don't know as this also doesn't have any locally produced segments either.

Noodle updates shouldn't be illegal. They aren't that bad, they just lack depth and video footage.

I think, if anything, the stations (Prime & Ten affiliates), should be forced to have a certain amount of video footage in these update to make them like a proper news update, rather than someone reading the headlines from the newspaper.

State Focus - I agree with you, but it's still crap

PBL should sell NTD-8 to someone else...they past few years they have treated their viewers with contempt.

As for Prime's "locally produced content"...I think the ABA's rules weren't that clear...they should've included "content is not to be produced by outside companies".

If Prime is so lazy about local news how about they ask Seven to produce a Canberra bulletin and Prime pays them along with the affiliation fees.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


It's not Seven responsibility for the Southern NSW area. It's Prime's.

Mind you, the metro stations often don't help. Maybe the programming around that hour could be moved around to accomdate Deal, 7 News, TT and H & A. 5pm Deal, 5.30pm
Home and Away, 6pm Prime News 6.30pm 7 News, 7pm TT.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

My plan for prime
noodle updates played on the hour every hour with video
10min noodle update. each story with video at 6pm and seven news at 6:10 today tonight at 6:30 (without ads or limited ad's you would be able to fit 10min noodle update, seven news and today tonight in by 7pm )
Axe:INFO NET,On the land,little bit of country and saturday club.

My plan for sc10
noodle updates played on the hour every hour with video
10min noodle update. each story with video at 5pm Ten news at 5:10 (without ads or limited ad's you would be able to fit 10min noodle update and ten news by 6pm.)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I agree. The problem is, those updates don't lead to anything. Jaybonzi's idea is good, except axing a few of those programs. Axe on the land and a little bit of country, but not the others.


The ABA should allow Seven to buy some of Prime licences. I would like to see Seven take Newcastle, Wollongong, Canberra, the Gold Coast, and possibly Ballarat and Bendigo in Victoria.

At least Seven does put some effort into producing local bulletins, and to a much higher standard than Win's.

Just on a different note, does anyone have any caps or videos of Seven's local news?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


That would be hard to do because it would involve splliting up licenses...effectively de-aggreating the areas.

Seven puts the effort into thier Queensland bulletins is because they own the station there, and thus they have a responsibility not only to local residents to make it work, but to their shareholders, as it still has to make money.

Hi All

I am in Emerald, Qld right now for the Emerald Mining & Industrial Expo until Sunday. I caught the Ten Southern Cross news update this evening and thought it was quite good. The content was a bit light but local nonetheless and relevant.

What annoyed me was their weather flyover - not only was it hard to read but the temp for Emerald on the flyover was then different to the regional cities wrap by 1-2 degrees. Is this normal?

If it's news in the bush and it's on Southern Cross (Ten & Tasmania) here's where it goes.

You can also use this thread for discussion for other news services: Imparja News and Central GTS/BKN News

Has anyone heard anything official about the apparent demise of Imparja News?

I would have thought if the bulletin was axed, they'd be an article about it floating around somewhere. It's a significant media story if Alice Springs and remote Australia has lost its regional news bulletin.

The Imparja website still has a link to Imparja News, but it's not the most up-to-date of sites. I notice in the TV Guide that they still do a weather update at 7:27 AEST.

It doesn't look like they've cancelled the bulletin...TV Week still lists it as being at 6.30pm.

I hope Imparja haven't axed the bulletin...Alice Springs and remote Australia does need some sort of local news service...Southern Cross have made things quite clear that they're not interested in producing local content for SC Central.

If the article in the Courier Mail was correct... that Ten News Brisbane is now shown on Imparja... then it would almost certainly appear that Imparja's news has been dumped. If you look at the program guide on Imparja's website, the 6:00-7:00 AEST slot is national news (presumably Ten News Brisbane), and there are no other news shows in the schedule that are likely to be locally produced.

They still do local weather updates... so it's possible they have a 2-minute noodle bulletin or something. In the past when I've checked out the Imparja TV Guide, Mervyn Castillon was always listed as the newsreader... but now there is no mention of Mervyn Castillon anywhere. I think the bulletin is gone. no.gif

What is so surprising is why the bulletin's demise isn't in the news. Perhaps it wasn't a very good bulletin and no one cares. silly.gif

I've checked the TV guide for next week, and it turns out what you've said is true...I was looking at this week's.

It's such a large area, so a local news service may have just turned out to be impossible. Also, I believe SC Central is the No. 1 service in that area, and that's just a localized relay of 7 Brisbane. Maybe they're going down that route.

Or there's financial problems that Imparja aren't letting on about and the news is a victim of those.

Financial problems? pah! Imparja TV is backed by the government!
Now i think an area of 430,000 needs a "local news" i did put that in my mock tv guide. The only reason i can think of why Imparja's news has gone is because it's too Alice Springs orientated.

True, but then again, this government hasn't been the most Aboriginal-friendly.

Considering this local area of 430,000 includes people in places like Lowd Howe and Norfolk Islands, plus areas outside central Australia that are at the extremities of local OTA reception (I had a mate who went to the same school, but because his farm was in a hilly, mountainous area, OTA reception was impossible, so they are eligble for satellite), local news is just about impossible to do properly. But still...they still could've done a national news bulletin, and just split the signal so that Alice Springs and surrounds gets one bulletin, and everyone else gets another.

here's my vision (for 7 Central, now i know they've changed it)

At 6pm/5.30pm there's Seven Central News produced for Canberra after one block a national news, there's now a regional insert (also make use of Central GTS/BKN facilities) then it's back to Canberra after 15 minutes. then on Weekends just one bulletin can be done from Canberra.

I like that idea, but I doubt they'd do it. They're not required to do so (Remote and Central Australia wasn't included in local news legislation), so why spend money when you don't need to.
