I totally forgot about this morning Countdown (until half way through the episode.. I'm kicking myself!).
Would some kind soul out there be able to upload the episode as a MKV or something somewhere I can download it from please? (Handbrake is a good free program so transfer from a DVD to either MP4 or MKV).
Thanks very much to anyone that can.. :)
Chad, it should be repeated on ABC ME (formerly known as ABC3) on Sunday night, from around 1:30 Monday morning. But I'd record the whole show (starting from 9:30) just in case it's at a different time, as there was no chart segment from 6-8am Saturday shown this week.
edit - hmmm, the TV guide at yourtv.com.au says rage is finishing at 2:03am Monday morning, which would suggest either the Countdown episode will screen earlier, or it's not being shown as part of the Saturday morning repeat. Normally they repeat the 6:00-10:30am segment on Saturday morning on ABC ME on Sunday night, but who knows what they will actually air given that rage wasn't scheduled to start until 8:00 this morning (and didn't start until 9:00, in Victoria anyway).
Actually, the Countdown episode could even be repeated on ABC ME Thursday night from 9:30, as it's an hour-long episode (as it normally is). Normally they repeat the 10:30-11:30 guest programmer/special preview from Saturday morning then, and I would guess they were showing the retro filmclips shown after the Countdown episode this morning... but that wasn't a whole hour's worth; so they're quite possibly showing the Countdown episode then, instead.
For some reason my set top box failed to record it
I see that Rage is on Monday morning 12.40am to 1.25am - I assume that's the '82 Countdown?
If the 1982 Countdown is not repeated on Sunday night or during the week on ABC ME I am more than happy to burn copies for those who need a copy
It is indeed being repeated now on ABC ME.
It was indeed repeated and I recorded it again. Though tonight's episode had the ABC in yellow with something near it during Elton introducing where as on Saturday it was during the Countdown theme intro.
I guess because it was ABC ME they had that extra little bit cut off when in 4.3 as it should be!
Thanks to everyone for their help.. I now have this episode :)
