GREENS CALL ON TUNBULL FOR COMMUNITY TV BACKDOWN

24. February 2015

Melbourne Greens MP Adam Brandt has called on Minister of Communication and Prime Minister in waiting, Malcolm Turnbull to reverse his decision to kill off community television at the end of the year. After more than 20 years on air, community television in Australia will lose access to broadcast spectrum at the end of 2015. This will result in the end of Community TV in Australia and end the opportunities for hundreds of young Australians who now gain valuable real world experience in television production and further reduce the already limited diversity of the Australian Media. If you believe that independent community media has a place in a vibrant democracy the please contact your local MP and ask them what they are doing to save community television.

TERRANOVA BACK IN DAKAR CONTENTION AS WALKNER WINS ON TWO WHEELS

TERRANOVA BACK IN DAKAR CONTENTION AS WALKNER WINS ON TWO WHEELS

After crashing at the end of the special on Monday, Orlando Terranova had no intention of leaving his team-mate Nasser Al-Attiyah to effortlessly lead the rally. The Argentinean, who has good knowledge of the tracks in his region, produced a sterling effort in the second part of the special after having reached CP1 with a similar time to Giniel de Villiers and Al-Attiyah. In the end, he clawed back almost two minutes on the Toyota driver and more than four minutes on the Qatari general standings leader. This battle was joined by Alrajhi Yazeed who is taking part in his first Dakar and who now occupies a very impressive fifth place in the general standings. As for the Peugeot team, Carlos Sainz seems to be getting the hang of the new car and improving in performance terms with the day's fourth place, four minutes behind the day's winner, even if the Spaniard is still far from being in an ideal position to battle for victory in Buenos Aires, trailing Al-Attiyah by almost 20 minutes in the general standings. Stéphane Peterhansel is also climbing back up the standings even if the Frenchman did lose almost ten minutes to Terranova today, whilst his former team-mate Nani Roma finally put his mishaps behind him with sixth place this Tuesday evening in Chilecito. Third in the general standings this morning, Bernhard Ten Brinke lost 30 minutes and drops down to 8th place. 6th on the first stage and then 3rd on the second, Airat Mardeev has continued his progression with a first stage victory on the Dakar 2015, enabling him to take the lead in the general standings. The Kamaz driver managed to open up a gap of almost two minutes over a second Kamaz driven by Andrey Karginov, the winner in 2014, and a gap of 4'30 over the ever consistent Gerard de Rooy. In the general standings, Mardeev now boasts a lead of eight minutes over his main rivals.
