Today I went into Sydney to the Ultimo  television studios of the ABC
 (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).

To watch a recording of a new show called Randling
The audience is lining up to enter the studio.

Wendy Harmer and Benjamin Law represented the Northern Thrusters
 and 
Dave O’Neill and Anthony Morgan represented the Fitzroy Fireballs.

 There are either Matinee or Evening Recordings until 1st May.
Audience Phone Number: Call 02 9217 2243

I left home at 9am to catch a train into Sydney to be there by 11.30am the recording started at 12.30pm, I was able to get a aisle seat as I get a little clautrosphobic if I feel closed in. The warmup guy was ok but just didn’t connect comfortably with the audience (different guy does the night recording). The show is a word game two teams vying against each other for points. Andrew Denton (Big Gig, Glass House, Enough Rope) hosted the show and it was great to see someone (including Wendy Harmer)  I have be watching on TV for the last 20 years. I have been to a recording of previous shows over the years and I am surprised how different it is to watching a show on TV.

    Interesting experience. I only ever went to a recording of a TV show once, and it was a political Q&A, just at the time of the Falklands war and the sinking of the Belgrano.
