Well unless anything has changed in the last couple of weeks, the National Nine News Perth opener begins with a voiceover that says "This is Perth's National Nine News".

Well there's a contradiction in terms. Perth's National news. No, makes no sense to me.
QUOTE
I don't see anything wrong with that. Seven Perth do that sometimes in promos, etc - and their news has the "Live from the studios of Seven Perth" in the opener too.

I can't stand that either. I find it very condescending.
QUOTE
I think keeping things local like that is a good thing - especially in Perth where everyone here hates when something is centralised over east. People are quick to judge on things like that, so if the networks keep using that "Perth" word around, it keeps people happy.

I've lived in WA for 15 years, and 10 of those years in Perth, and I've never heard of anyone think like that. It seems to be just the media. Most people simply don't care where things are produced, with the exception of produce (and even that seems to be slipping).

I see your point about the "National" part, however that is the name of the bulletin so what else would you expect?

How is using a phrase like that condescending? They're telling the viewers that they're live from the studios of Seven Perth. I don't see how that can be taken as condescending. You'll find that the some of the other markets have followed that trend as well - the Adelaide and Melbourne editions of Seven News start with exactly the same voice over.

People like things to be local. I personally wouldn't want to watch a 6pm news bulletin produced over east and hosted by an eastern states presenter. They would know nothing about Perth and it loses the local feeling about it which counts for quite a lot when it comes to news. Ten News have some sense with what they're doing - they at least have a local face to present the news instead of throwing 2 eastern states presenters at us every day.

Depends on who you talk to. You'll find the ever increasing bullying from Coles and Woolworths in ambushing the local producers in favour of themselves or eastern states replacements aren't doing them any favours here. Their day will come. However, that's a separate discussion and not one for this topic or forum.

I think you'll find quite a lot of Perth (and WA) people prefer as much as possible to be done locally. News being one of them.

I think you're forgetting that when things move east, people here lose jobs. Look what happened when Seven moved all their production to Melbourne - most of the workers at Seven Perth (who were good at their job) lost their job.

At the end of the day I will always support something that's local before I even look at something from another state or country. So, I applaud anyone who continues to boast that they're local - and if people didn't care as you say, then Seven and Nine wouldn't make the point of adding those voiceovers.

There's no contradiction... it is a bulletin broadcast from Perth that covers national news as opposed to just local news.
Is ABC's World News Tonight a contradiction because it's seen mainly in the US? No of course not... the "World News" part refers to the content (well the supposed content) Just as as the "National" part of "National Nine News" can be seen as referring to the content not that the bulletin is broadcast nationally. If that were the case none of Nine's early evening news bulletins could use "National" if their titles.

They do it all the time here in Melbourne, and its not so much condescending as just embarrasing.... its Melbourne's this and Melbourne's that.... they even have Ray standing in front of a Melbourne skyline for the ACA promos.... And every promo on Seven and Nine have their "Made in Melbourne" stickers..... I just want to watch a show thats good, I'll never sit down to watch crap, no matter where it's made.....

So why did these channels (ABC, Nine) cancel Corrie? Was there a ratings issue?

STW believes that because of all the Poms we have over here that it'll work for them. It has surprised everyone though so it's a bold move. Will be interesting to see how long it stays for and/or if it works for them.

I beg to differ there. Celina isn't from Perth and she was (in the sense she doesn't present Perth news anymore) a better presenter than anyone else we have. She leaves Charmaine for dead to the point where I don't bother with Ten News anymore.

Localism can be a good thing but not at the expense of talent and being forced to use shit studios which owuld be the case with Ten, seen how shit the sport and weather look compared to the Sydney bits?

I'd say they're trying to pick up viewers in Mandurah, Kwinana, Rockingham, etc.
