Loss of coverage in telly guide

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Friends of the ABC : One Thread

Have noticed the Sunday Herald Sun has made changes to its weekly television guide. In particular they have reduced the amount of space available for reviews of new and special programmes and cut out their daily reviews section (replaced with pay tv listings).

Given the amount of reviews previously written for the various ABC programmes these changes could be to the ABCs detriment as well as for the television viewers.

I am about to write and email the Sunday Herald Sun to see if they might re-introduce space in their guide for programme reviews. I was hoping other Friends of the ABC might also join me so as to built up some pressure on the Sunday Herald Sun telly guide (and other tv guides) to offer more than just a programme listing.

More reviews and information of whats on each week on the various ABC current/public affairs shows, the documentaries, and the various specials and features is required.

Hopefully we can convince the folk at Sunday Herald Sun that so much information on pay tv sport and repeated movies is not required and of little value to viewers.

Address details for the Sunday Herald Sun are: PO Box 14999 Melbourne City MC, 8001
