Statistics from the trip to Deniliquin Thus, I Laughed

Canberra relocated to Victoria

Well, almost.

When WIN News Victoria teased the story about the lone pine at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra being split in two, I was wondering how they were going to put a local angle on it in order to pass it off as local news.

So, how did they do it? The stock intro for the story had a line added to it about it providing branches or pine cones or similar to Victorian school students over the years. The rest appeared to be the stock intro which would have been used on the Canberra edition of WIN News, followed by Janene Manwaring’s story, which also would have aired on WIN News Canberra.

It’s nice to see that I’m not the only one who thinks it’s a slow news day around here…oh, and that a bunch of stories on WIN News Victoria were on my 2QN bulletins this morning.

    The tree was planted by the Duke of Glostershire (according to Mike Welsh).

    Did I hear my name being bandied about ?

    Yes your grace, I believe you did hear (or is that “see”?) your name being “bandied about”.

    For the benefit of Mike Welsh (radio announcer on 2CC), the lone pine at the Australian War Memorial was NOT planted by my good self, the Duke of Glostershire.

    It was in fact planted by the Duke of Gloster (Gloucester).

    So, which trees have you planted, Duke?
