Watch Media Watch

If you’re interested in the world of advertising and media, then you’ve a tough choice with your telly at 8.30 tomorrow night.  

media-watch-tea-cupOver on SBS, there’s the next episode of Mad Men, but the real scheduling clash in on the ABC, where they’ve got the ABC2 repeat of The Gruen Transfer up against the 20th anniversary one hour special of Media Watch on ABC1.

My advice is to go for Media Watch.

Having seen a preview of it, it really does make you realsie what an impact the programme has had on Australian media.

From triumphs like Barcelona Tonight, when Today Tonight was caught fabricating claims they were being harrased by Spanish police…

… to the Cash for Comment radio scandal, to the abrupt (and happily temporary) cancellation of the show after it asked too many tough questions about the ABC. It also covers its long running feud with various News Ltd editors.

Unmissable stuff.
