Mike Bailey, the former ABC weatherman and unsuccessful Labor candidate for North Sydney in last year’s federal election, has joined Channel Nine a weather presenter on their Sydney bulletin.
I was very surprised but also quite pleased to see Mike Bailey on the television again, I didn’t think I would ever see him presenting the weather on a commercial news service. It would appear that Mike will be presenting the weather on Friday and Saturday.
I remember watching an educational video about the weather in High School. Mike Bailey was the host of the video, in which he pushed bags of air around to demonstrate high and low pressure systems. I enjoyed that video, even though others found it incredibly boring…I had the great pleasure of seeing the video about half a dozen times during high school, mostly due Mr. Damien Malony showing it to my class a number of times. The video was produced by Video Education Australia, unfortunately I can’t find it in their catalogue, but I may contact them to see if the video is still available…I would like to have a copy of it.
