Spearing the Menu

Spearing the Menu

Pity about the demise of Channel 31 in Perth otherwise we might have seen it here too. One of the other free to air channels might decide to use it.... (can always hope...)

Media release received today (no link yet)

Spearfishing is coming to free-to-air TV

A ground breaking television show has been produced by Bellarine Peninsula’s In-Depth Productions. Spearing the Menu is a new adventure program that takes you underwater in search of fresh ocean delights and back into the kitchen to cook up the catch.

The Spearing the Menu team consists of three marine scientists and a teacher, all experienced freedivers and spearfishers, who educate the viewers on the marine environment and our guiding principles of Safe, Sustainable, Selective spearfishing.

“We hope our enthusiasm for the marine environment will encourage people to get out and explore the underwater world for themselves” says presenter Sean Blake.

This first series consists of seven episodes showcasing some of the best diving Victoria has to offer, as well as spectacular, and at times adrenaline fuelled, action from the Coffs Coast, NSW.

Matt Koopman, one of the shows presenters says ”We are excited to be bringing the underwater action into peoples living rooms, and hope to expose this poorly understood sport to the mainstream.”

Spearing the Menu will begin airing on C31 Melbourne on 7th September at 9pm, TVS Sydney on 17th September at 7pm, C31 Adelaide on 17th September at 8:30pm and QCTV on 9th September at 7pm.

Spearing the Menu has been backed by Geelong Otway Tourism Incorporated the Melbourne based Legendary Skindiving Equipment and Bellarine Estate winery.

 C31 gone, actually lying in bed the other night was wondering if their are any fishing programmes starting up in Perth, as you get a bit tired of watching eastern states fishing programmes (even though they are excellent to watch) just nice to see local or up north fishing segments and we all can relate to WA fishing waters, or am I being mean?

We don't get it down here, so I didn't know. I'm aware of what I believe to be the issue (analogue to digital costs). I think the value of those community media outlets is immeasurable :(
