Val reports that, “My years at Channel 7 were so much fun and I was very fortunate to meet a group of fantastic people that are still my very best friends today (including my husband!!).”

My favourite pic of all – the Farewell Party to Sir James.


Hollywood line-up with all those legs & short skirts – how ironic after Sir James was so strict about all the secretaries wearing short skirts!!

Produced by Brian Smith this dance number was sung to the tune of Mickey Mouse… can’t remember all the names but here we go:

J? I ? M? C? R?

U –Kim from 6IX

H – Lynette Gray

E – Val Sutherland

R – Kerry from Production

S – ?

But the most gorgeous gal… Peter Dean in drag!!

Farewell for Publicity Manager Ron Berryman. Publicity Manager was a hot seat with many changes! Ron resigned to go to the Tobacco Institute.


L-R: Val Sutherland, Ron Berryman Ruth Leyland and Mary Crowell.


(Channel 7 6) Stephanie Quinlan’s “Today” show attracted lots of celebrities. This one with the old Rock ‘n’ Rollers Dr. Hook.
