TARGET TITLES 1976
TARGET Sherbet Special
COUNTDOWN December 2nd, 1984
COUNTDOWN August 2nd, 1981
ROCK ARENA December 16th, 1986
COUNTDOWN September 26th, 1982
Disappointed that we don't get the hour between 10:30 & 11.30, but not surprised really. I think it's a mini JJJ Hottest 100 special of previous winners ?
While it would have been nice to have the extra hour, I'm very happy with week 4 of Retro Month...3 more Countdowns and a Rock Arena (plus some Sherbet) is great news !
And that's it for another year...fingers crossed Retro Month returns in January 2014...
Oh well better than nothing
I mean time wise better than nothing considering they were thinking of perhaps scraping Retro 4 all together.
1976 is very cooool
Im not on facebook but Im happy we have some music for tonight.
Anybody got any info on the Rock Arena episode?????
Gee, no Recovery this year. Maybe they were stung by my comment on Facebook that Recovery was garbage and was put onto the ABC by a former CEO as an "up yours" to the Howard government for appointing conservatives to the ABC board.
I was dreading that the final week of Retro would be '90s night as usual and be taken up by Recovery.
A great pity so much of the 1970's Countdowns and others of the era are gone. Although I find it interesting that what remains has tons of Sherbert clips in them - maybe who destroyed those tapes originally just couldn't part with Sherbert??
I loved Secret Squirrel.
Yes - only segments from the "Target" show survive in the ABC archives - no complete shows - a bit like Flashez until some shows were recovered a number of years ago. Very good to see this valuable piece of footage though, especially the opinions of Sydney teenagers on Sherbet, Bay City Rollers etc. And 1976 - anything from that year is pure gold!!
First time i had ever seen it, didn't even know it existed till last night!
