Not sure if anyone caught the show on Lord Howe Island last month on SBS. You will see from my email to SBS on 14 May why you may have missed it. Note they just replied to me today. It's a place I really want to go to, so have my radar up on anything and everything about it.

Good morning

I have been told from two sources that there was a show in Melbourne on Saturday 10 May b/w 4.30 and 5.30 pm about Lord Howe Island. On your schedule it says:

"A news breaking current affairs program from the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the United States, presented by Jim Lehrer from Washington. CC "

But what actually went to air? Can you please advise what the show was. Is it going to be repeated? If not, may I request it is repeated, and advertised in advance?

If not, can it be put up as a podcast? please.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Wendy,

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the documentary Lord Howe Island.

Unfortunately, this program has not been commercially released on video or DVD in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Australia, and due to copyright restrictions is unavailable for sale or loan from SBS.

However, we do have the rights to repeat it.

At this stage no date has been set by us to re-screen it, but we expect to do so in approximately 8-12 months. Please keep an eye on the published TV guides or on our online TV schedule for advanced notice of its transmission at: <>
