Brisbane Daytime Television

I'm finally back in Brisbane, and while waiting for Jummah this morning I've managed to grab the first bit of downtime I've had for the whole trip so far. So obviously I spent it in front of the box checking out the local stations.

Perhaps it's a bit patronising to say so but the daytime shows here are pretty amusing. The issues and debates they raise appear to be so trivial and basic compared to what we talk about back in the UK; for example they're currently considering social problems we wouldn't bat an eyelid over.

I guess it's times like these that you realise how far ahead the UK is in both its thinking and problems.
