Official opening

The Bush Telly exhibit official opening function for sponsors is from 12 noon till 2pm on Tuesday 10 March, 2009.


There are 40 one hour Bush Telly programme segments during the five days of the show. Each segment will take the form of a 25 minute conservation interview or demonstration filmed live before the public. These interviews will be a lot of fun for everyone involved! See the Filming Schedule here

Interview slots

Everyone being interviewed is required on set for two hours. They will spend the first hour on the “green room” set, relaxing with a cuppa and getting ready. The second hour is when the scheduled filming will take place in front of the live “studio audience”.
