I call it the GG. The Age Green Guide, the television supplement, and I have been friends for over twenty years, no more. I was there when it faded to almost white, and I was there went it got its first staples. The closer I read it, the less tv I have to watch to stay informed on trivial tv matters. The tech section always has something of interest to read.
What seemed like a good idea to The Age, and to me at the time, was to rejig the day GG starts its weekly listing. The GG is in Thursday's copy of the paper and used to start the list on Friday. This meant you had two GGs hanging around on Thursday night. The starting day was altered to Thursday. Ah, good, I can chuck one out on Thursday morning and the new one will arrive with the listing for that night's viewing.
Clearly I should have thought a bit more about it. You see the paper does not arrive until R gets home from work. I would then normally take it to work on Friday to read, and then the GG would be home for Friday night's viewing. I can still take it to work on Friday if I am only working during the day, but as I am not this week, I had to work it out differently.
The was a doco on a couple of dykes on tv on Thursday night, and I would have missed it had I not heard about it on the radio. In the past, the details would have been in the previous week's GG.
Clearly a lot of people were having issues, and so, it has been adjusted back to what it has been for as long as I can remember.
They made some other minor changes too. The font size for the radio guide was so small, it required a magnifying glass. Bet you couldn't read it Jayne. I could just with strong reading glasses on and in a bright light.
There were a few other minor adjustments and apart from the Tech section now being white, it is pretty well back to how it was. Change for the sake of change is marvellous, a marvellous waste of time.
