Sunday, 9am, ABC1 More than 535,000 viewers tuned in to Insiders just after Kevin Rudd replaced Julia Gillard as Prime Minister. That proves there’s interest in politics, even over a bowl of muesli, among voters who want to get a handle on what’s really happening. If that’s possible. Hosted by veteran Canberra journalist Barrie Cassidy, who joined the ABC in 1979, but left in 1986 to become press secretary to prime minister Bob Hawke until 1991, Insiders offers an informed overview of the week’s events. A panel of senior journalists, fun to watch when they try to demolish each other’s opinions, debates hot issues and dissects the day’s newspaper front pages. Photographer Mike Bowers hosts the popular Talking Pictures segment, a look at the best of the week’s political cartoons and photographs. The Insiders panel this week includes Malcolm Farr from news.com.au and Dennis Atkins from The Courier-Mail. If you don’t wake up in time or the dog insists it needs a walk RIGHT NOW, you can catch it later on www.abc.net.au/tv/iview.
