The 12th annual Kuttsywood's Couch guide to DST delays.

Welcome, to the 12th edition of this sites's annual DST guide.

This year, we are dealing with yet another major big switch: this time, the race that stops the nation, which will see the Melbourne Cup carnival return back to it’s home pre-2001, Network 10 (and for the majority of WIN’s stations, the first Melbourne Cup airing on their channel since aggregation 30yrs ago).

Normally, you’d see here a DST guide entry.
Instead: you’ll be seeing a open letter, on behalf of Queensland viewers for reasons you will find out soon enough.

To whom it may concern at Nine.
We are lodging a complaint, about how you treated viewers to a two minute highlight reel on August 16: your sixtieth birthday in QLD. We deserve a lot better than a highlight reel. QTQ’s past deserves the doco treatment, as has happened with past major anniversaries, such as your 25th in 1984, 30th in 1989, 40th in 1999 and of course: your 50th just ten years ago in 2009.

I have said openly on Twitter, since the 18th of August, that Nine must apologise for what it has done, and make it up to the viewers that have watched your station for six decades, who want to celebrate it’s history, tribulations and triumphs with you, instead of seeing money thrown away in multi-month giveaways to prop up news ratings, and cocktail events limited to the very few.

You may have seen it more than once on social media: using the hashtag, #WheresTheDoco9

And, the responses have been outstanding:
TVBlackbox’s Rob McKnight’s been the most stirring:
“I love it when television celebrates itself. Important to remind viewers why we are so connected to the medium.”

So, Nine: listen to the call, before Seven embarrasses you again in November, by doing what Nine won’t do: listen to the viewers (trust us: many of us viewers are wearing the hats 7 gave us at the EKKA this year, as a way to stick it to Nine for their ignorance of their milestone.) and give us a doco worth remembering.

Because, if you don't start giving a damn now: people won't give a damn when QTQ's big 7-0 hits in 2029.
QTQ's past triumphs are our memories.
Let us remember them, Nine: and we'll all be cheering.


Adrian "Kuttsywood" Cutts:
on behalf of QLD’s television audience.

That’s right, folks: There will be no Nine and for that matter: no 4BC/4BH in this year’s DST guide, simply because Nine doesn’t care about their history and heritage, in this person’s eyes. I may change my opinion, if Nine gives us viewers the answer we deserve, not insulting our intelligence by staying silent.

And, I hope, that the link below will direct to a QTQ 60th doco, one of these days.

4BC/Macquarie Sports Radio: See Nine.

SEN1053 (rumoured to launch soon): Live into QLD (hopefully with local announcers), making MSR’s life a living hell.

4RO.com.au (Laurie Atlas, 1-5pm, open line #: 07 4922 7990): Live into QLD, on the count that it’s coming from QLD.
4MMM/Gold FM Drive: delayed into QLD.
HIT/SEA Drive: Delayed into QLD.
Nova Drive: Delayed into QLD.
97.3 Drive: Delayed into QLD.
