Kuttsywood's Couch's 6th annual guide to Daylight Saving delays on FTA in Queensland

Welcome to the sixth edition of the DST guide, which has had many great moments in it's lifetime, including the surge of people who checked out this guide, along with the DST updates over at Kuttsywood's Couchcushion, throughout last year, which will be returning next week. There will be no hashtag this year... or is there? However, we will open up proceedings for this year with some long term warnings, for events concerning the digital restack in the coming months.

Moving Up The Dial

Dedicated to Mike Lattin, former publicist, and station manager at TVQ who passed away in July 2012, and Peter Clark, TVQ helicopter pilot, who passed away in a tragic helicopter accident on Mt Coot-tha in August 1998.

Welcome to a fantastic look, at the last 25 years of TVQ being on Channel 10. As we move towards the fiftieth birthday of TVQ-0/10 in July 2015, this is the first part of a two-part series. As with all tales, it has a magnificent beginning: just as the media landscape in Australia was changing.

Kuttsy's Pitch V: The Pitch To The Future

The hashtag is #kpitchV

The hypothetical "Pitch From The Past", will be out shortly. It is designed to be read and compared with this post as a companion: thus references to it in this post will be retained.

Welcome to the the future. A future many people five years ago wasn’t even expecting. This is the fifth edition of a enigmatic series. This is a pitch to the future, This is Kuttsy’s Pitch V.
After looking back on what could have been our past if events turned out different, we are reminded of our reality. Brisbane Extra, in June next year will have been gone for five years. Seven in that time have gone through a generational change at 6pm, much like Nine did in the wake of the Extra axe, but one thing still plagues them. Bruce Paige, helping spearhead Nine’s revival, much like a quarter of a century ago. But we ask these questions so you, the viewer don’t have to.

50 Great QLD TV Moments: in Analogue

This post has been nearly six months in the making. Today we celebrate the end of a analogue era: one that has been full of it's ups and downs, and technological changes. This is simply...
This countdown, has been widely sourced: and is a look back down memory lane, for those who can remember the change to colour, or QLD's Commonwealth Games win just two years ago. This is a countdown that is as historic as it is lengthy. This will easily be the longest post you've ever read on this site, but it has to be long to do it justice.
We now begin the countdown, at #50: when how we got interstate and international news in QLD changed forever, with one major event, 35 years ago.

The end of a analogue era: TVQ-0/10

We now come to a special piece, commemorating the history of a station that was left out of the fiftieth run of history pieces, back in 2009. Fittingly, as we move into one switch, there is a very important anniversary coming up in September: that means a lot to not just Brisbane viewers, but 10 in general. Sit back, and relive the history of what TVQ-0 was when it launched: the third player in a wheel...

The Twitter hashtag for this post is #tendemonium.
This site often asks the hard questions. Now here's one that could have titanic shifts in the Australian media, and could possibly spark a rash of changes throughout the television industry. What would happen if the Ten situation got worse, and what is the remedy? It's this question that is now simply a case of Ten-demonium... It's the Ten-demonium that could see the Ten we all know head towards another 1990-style situation: when the network underwent costcuts but couldn't prevent it going into recievership. But it is a tale that has taken many turns, especially as Ten's demographics keep changing, all while their bread and butter for so many years, the youth: are increasingly turning to the internet first. This Is...
