ALERT! Many of you have seen the article on DeciderTV about the Season 5 premiere of Doctor Blake and the telemovie. It was mentioned in the article that both Foxtel and Channel 7 are interested in picking up Doctor Blake. We contacted Channel 7, as a group, a couple of weeks ago. Because it has been awhile since we have contacted Foxtel, we would like to get our next campaign started with them. A member (and admin of our group) recently sent a Tweet that had a positive response from Foxtel.
So, on this Wednesday 23 August, let's all contact Foxtel again. We need to strike while Foxtel is interested. We don't have much more time to find another network. To those of you who want a free-to air- network to pick up our show, we understand but, look at what Foxtel has done for A Place To Call Home. They have nurtured and promoted this show and it has been a ratings hit for Foxtel, and won awards. Remember that Foxtel will produce DVDs that everyone can purchase and your library should have them, so you will be able to see the show for free. And if your local library isn't "with the times" and doesn't have it, simply put in a purchase request with them so that they do purchase it and then you can continue to enjoy the show wherever you are in the world! Please everyone, contact them on Wednesday and add a link to our website. Everything is on it.
Just a gentle reminder to those in the US that you are behind Australia time wise, so on Tuesday there in the US, it is already Wednesday here in Australia. Please Google the time difference, if you are confused. Contact Foxtel as close to Wednesday as you can. We want to make a big splash and have them get a bunch of messages from the Blake Army all on the same day!
