Aerial supremacy

from Sue, Trar­al­gon South IN RE­PLY to An­gry Yokel of Trar­al­gon ( Guide, April 8), the bush does get One HD, it just de­pends on your an­tenna. We re­ceive the re­gional and metropoli­tan chan­nels, in­clud­ing One HD, from one an­tenna.

Serve us an ace, Nine

from Brian, Bel­grave NOT sure if Chan­nel 9 will tele­vise the US Open golf this year, but I hope it’s tele­vised at the same time as Wim­ble­don, from 10.30pm, in­stead of in the wee small hours. More peo­ple play golf in Aus­tralia than ten­nis, yet Nine runs Wim­ble­don for two weeks at a rea­son­able hour. What­ever hap­pens, don’t fol­low the lead of Chan­nel 10 with the Mas­ters — the num­ber of ads drove me nuts.

Call of the wild

from Chooka, Kerang I WATCHED the footy match be­tween Carl­ton and Essendon on Chan­nel 10 on Satur­day, April 11. Why bother to have com­men­ta­tors at the game? Apart from the times when the crowd went a bit quiet, such as bounc­ing the ball in the mid­dle or kick­ing out from goal, you couldn’t hear a word the com­men­ta­tors were say­ing. I’m sure they ei­ther a) sit in the stands with the crowd, or b) have the win­dow of their com­men­tary box wide open.

Hosts’ added ap­peal

from Max Adams, Bar­won Heads CHAN­NEL 7’s log­i­cal choice to host the evening ses­sion of the Royal Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Ap­peal was Peter Mitchell, so ably as­sisted by Jen­nifer Keyte. Both are self-ef­fac­ing types and pre­sented en­joy­able tele­vi­sion with Grant Denyer thank­fully only hav­ing a small part as a guest. Well done, Mitch and Jen.

Seven’s wind-up

from Phil Crowe, Black­wood WHAT’S wrong with the clocks and cal­en­dars at Chan­nel 7? AFL foot­ball is al­ways shown an hour or two af­ter the ac­tual event, and it showed the movie The Pas­sion of the Christ on Easter Satur­day when the ac­tual event occurred on Good Fri­day.

The­atre of dreams

from Big Kid, Sun­shine GREAT to see The King­dom of Paramithi is back on. What a great show for kids to learn about the the­atre. It re­minds me of when we were kids and would dress up and put on a show for our fam­ily and friends. I’m over 40 and watch it be­fore I go to work. I love it.
