TVW Channel 7 Reunion – Sunday October 18, 2009

The scheduled event start time was 2pm, with a crowd soon accumulating, all eagerly awaiting their entry to the historic Seven studios at Tuart Hill.

Veteran floor manager John Easton was one of the first in the queue, followed by Alan Richards.

The guests begin to file in


Studio One soon filled with veterans seeking out old familiar faces, between checking out the vintage technology and historic photos.


Guests were then directed into Studio Two to see the current day News and Today Tonight sets.

Finally ending up in the canteen area, courtyard stage area and gardens.


Johnny Young and the Strangers were busy entertaining the throng, until each decade of former staff were directed back to Studio One for Group photographs.



It was then back to the canteen for food and refreshments before enjoying the outdoors entertainment, which featured Perth opera singers, Justin and Katherine Freind, who gave John and his band a much earned break to mingle with friends and former colleagues.


Seven General Manager Ray Wardrop addressed the gathering and the prize draws began, with a trip for two to Melbourne going to Colm O’Doherty of Seaman O’Doherty, Children’s Channel Seven fame.
