Brian Henderson’s final National Nine News bulletin

Over at Frankster’s Archive, Frankster has just returned from a month-long break. One of the many things Frankster has posted in his first round of archival audio and video for the year is a video of the last ten minutes of Brian Henderson’s final National Nine News bulletin.

The video features some highlights, lowlights (and even a no-light) of Brian’s career, about half way through I’m pretty sure there’s voiceover from John Laws, and at one stage there is an extract of the Sydney version of the 1995 “Who’s who of news” promo.

I wonder what Brian is doing these days?

Incidentally, there is also a rather peculiar promo in there for Ten Eyewitness News with Steve Liebmann and Geraldine Doogue.

Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: Whaling

Despite last week’s drama in the Southern Ocean, the whaling continues. The debate over what we should do about it also continues (albeit a bit quieter than last week).

Should the Australian Navy be deployed to stop the whaling?

Total Votes: 29

As usual, please feel free to leave a comment below if you would like to elaborate on your answer.

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week’s award is presented as a tribute to the late Clinton Grybas. Clinton’s favourite song was “Shine” by Vanessa Amorosi, Vanessa performed this at Clinton’s funeral on Wednesday and as such she receives the award this week.

I would like to thank Steve Price for paying tribute to Clinton on Wednesday, and for allowing me a couple minutes to do the same.

You say that you never had a mum
And nobody needs you
So cry, so cry
You believe that life rolls by
Just to deceive you
By your time, by your time
You’re getting old
And the longer you take
The slower your pain will grow
It will grow, it will grow
You can close your eyes
And hope that when you open them
You’ve got a brand new life
Do you find, you can’t hide?

You can give your life
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to Shine
Shine

Grow up and make the best of what you’ve got
Of what you’ve got,
Of what you’ve got
The days are going by and you’re sittin’ on your arse
And you’re wondering why, why, why, yeah

You can give your life, or
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to Shine

You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to Shine

You say that you never had a mum
And nobody needs you
So cry, so cry, so cry
You believe that life rolls by just to deceive you
By your time, well by your time
Your getting old
And the longer you take the slower you’ll pain will grow
It’ll grow, it’ll grow
You can close your eyes
And hope that when you open them
You’ve got a brand new life

You can give your life or
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to Shine

You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Well look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to Shine

Don’t don’t, don’t don’t you do it
Shine
