Back Benches

Mrs Motella and I attended the filming of Bank Benches last night. We enjoyed the experience of being part of the audience and watching the production that was part of the Back Benches Summer Tour Series.

Guests on the panel were Moana Mackey, Derek Fox and Meng Foon. Wallace Chapman and co-host, Damian Christie did an excellent job to extract the most out of the assembled panel and subdued provincial audience.

I must say that this was one of the more light-hearted shows that I have seen so far with the panel in a jovial mood and the relaxed audience made up of farmers and retired school teachers were more than happy to sit back and be entertained rather than debating politics.

The highlight of the show was when a local woman spoke intently on how the government should be looking after Moko The Dolphin more as her husband looked on in stunned silence.

Overall it was a great night out and I even managed to book one of the panelists into our motel for the night.

It will be interesting to see what the final show will look like when it screens on Channel 7 at 9.10pm on Wednesday 20 January.
