I hope everyone had the chance to see tonight's episode of "This is your life" on Nine.

Happy 85th birthday QF

But old mate Geoff was nowhere to be seen...

I can't understand how Channel 9 can get away with screening a commercial for Qantas for 1 hour - I thought they had to show some TV shows occassionally!

Was great for a nostalgic look at how QF has grown over the period. Nancy Bird-Walton gave a bit of a spray at the beginning and Mike Munro couldn't interrupt her before she'd given the "pro-Australian" push about jobs etc.

Wasn't as in depth as I thought it would be, but nice to while away an hour.

At least they didn't showcase Geoff Dixon. The staff who modelled the QF-livery through the ages probably would have wanted to have taken him backstage and tortured him...

And did you notice they missed about two decades? They jumped from the 70s to the horrid Morrisey outfits they have now - which look like the hosties have put a curtain over their heads and wrapped a belt around themselves.
