Phil: I'm glad I got out of American TV when I did. The revenue streams are all drying up and most of the money's flowing to cable, satellite and rental. A lot of my friends and former employees are being laid off after struggling their entire lives just to eake out a living. It's not pretty and what's on the air on commercial American TV is worse. I understand Australian TV was viciously competitive. Whenever I ran into Ch. 9 or 7 (I believe that's right) news crews, they made Americans look like school kids.

Hi Ken
Yes there has been a lot of centralisation going on in Australian TV over the last few years. My colleges and I were all made redundant. (It's hard to get another career at 45) There is not many jobs available outside of Sydney and Melbourne (east coast) There is the big 3 her in Aust TV, channels 7.9 &10. Money is pretty tight so they fight tooth & nail for ratings etc. A lot of what is on tv here is American shows the same stuff that you guys watch. I worked for CH7, had a lot of great opportunities while I was there, covered 2 olympic games etc etc, but it's good to work for yourself and not have to answer to anybody else, come and go as you please. You know the sort of thing I mean.

With the proliferation of bloggers in America, a lot of expert are wondering if mainstream journalism's days are numbered. Certainly, TV news is suffering greatly at all levels. Salaries are terrible, morale is awful and most stations are now owned by a few huge conglomerates (your countryman Rupert Murdoch is among them) which means layoffs, homogeneous programming and plummeting ratings.
But it's a tremendous opportunity for little guys. Independent film makers are everywhere, documentaries are not only popular- they're setting the issue agenda i.e. Fahrenheit 911, Supersize Me. It's a golden age for documentary and I'm having a gas!

Ahh, but Brendan I'm still running (or perhaps walking is more accurate) a bit ahead of you. We are always moving forward though!
Keep on truckin',
