Monday 18 January 1988 - MELBOURNE

The official ratings survey for 1988 is still almost a month away but networks are already bringing out their big guns for the year.  A number of key programs return for 1988.  Seven launches its revamped and retitled half-hour news bulletin Seven Nightly News, its new current affairs program Hinch At Seven, and starts nightly episodes of Home And Away (after its movie-length pilot screened the previous night). 

Nine launches a revival of the A Current Affair title with former 60 Minutes reporter Jana Wendt as host.

ABC and Seven cross live to Botany Bay, Sydney, for the arrival of the re-enacted First Fleet voyage as part of the Australian Bicentennial celebration.
