Yesterday I headed off to Pyrmont to see the 2013 program presentation and was excited by what I saw. Here is what to expect from a rejuvenated Channel Ten in the new year. MORE DETAIL than what you might of read elsewhere!

Over 40 weeks Ten will show new series week after week, so there will always be a “series” on and no breaks in programming. Here they are -  Continue reading »

Then Maxi uses a mobile phone tracking device to locate a thief. But Corey struggles to stay calm when a bunch of Chinese school kids run wild. Local resident and amateur singer, Cora, enshrines it all in song when she pens a tune about Bondi’s hard working lifeguards.

8.00pm Monday April 23 on Ten

A surfing collision results in a deep water spinal rescue, and surf rage breaking out on the shore.

Lifeguards must work out who’s at fault. Mouse, AKA ‘The Black Cloud’ lives up to his nick name when he rescues a man with no pants, gets kicked in the face, and is then vomited on. And lifeguards try to catch a rat that’s been eating through the electrical cables on their buggies.

Into week 17 on Ten, The Biggest Loser is in its home stretch, while Touch premieres as part of super Sunday. New NCIS continues on Tuesday. Continue reading »

Nice to see Ten release the complete guide for week 6 already – without all those TBA’s and embargoed amendments the network have been notorious for. Having all the information avaialble to publish NOW allows more promotion time through the various media outlets and blogs who are in receipt of Ten programming information. Hopefully – Ten will start now being more open about their programming, and that future guides will be released in full in advance rather than having TBA’s and embargoes until a week before air date.

UPDATED. This week sees the return Bondi Rescue on Monday nights. Note that for the second time, House has been taken out of the schedule. Also season finale of The Glades Monday night 10.30.

Is this just the beginning of a new era of food? Travelling to different parts of the globe, this two-part documentary unravels the complicated web of links that binds the world together and asks what needs to happen to avert a major global food crisis.
