Dear ATO: Please give SBS my Eight Cents

Hold the front page! The Daily Telegraph comes in handy!! From the Jaqueline Lee Lewes section in the TV guide today about the Dylan doco No Direction Home:

The ABC was offered [it], but passed. According to a spokesperson there was no empty spot for it in the schedule. And it was very expensive, something the budget-battered broadcaster has to take into account.

SBS snapped it up, finalising the deal last week. It will be screened on Novemember 8 and 15 in Hot Docs at 10pm ....

On November 22, SBS will screen D.A Pennebaker's legendary 1967 documentary Don't Look Back, a portrait of Dylan and his entourage as they tour Britain in 1965.

Ah SBS. First the cricket, now this. Want to have dinner sometime?
