Growing local

The advent of the 24 hours digital news channel has opened new opportunities for the casual viewer. It's tricky to find the programme guide - none is printed - and the on-screen-guide is only what's ahead today, making it difficult to plan viewing ahead

Among the endless cycle of news they do have some quite fascinating programmes we would not ordinarily see. One such is other state's Stateline. This week, by happy chance, we tuned in to the second part of Stateline Canberra and it was totally absorbing with two different farmers. The farmer we missed was just as interesting going on the video and text I've just read. Go here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/video/2010/10/29/3052486.htm

The iView type streaming video (free with some ISPs) is a boon to those who do not yet have a digital TV. And a boon for those of us who want to catch up with missed programmes.

If you go here: http://www.abc.net.au/stateline/ all the links to each state's Stateline are available. The videos are online only for 3 months. While a lot of times Stateline is a political roundup, there's other times when there are different topics making Stateline worth keeping a watch on online.

Did you see the other two stories on the same programme? They were so good it encouraged me to find the last one (mentioned above). Yes, I could do with less Parliamentary drivel and more heartwarming success stories up here!
