Media Notes: World Archery Federation Seeks Offers To Televise Top Events
In order to popularize archery in India, the World Archery Federation has "invited offers from Indian and sub-continental broadcasters for its world cup and world championship events" (THE HINDU, 4/13). ... Australia's Channel 7 and Royal Randwick "have been besieged with complaints" that Saturday's historic celebration of Black Caviar was "ruined by alleged footage of animal cruelty." Viewers "pointed to the peak audience moment" when Seven's mounted sports reporter Hamish McLachlan interviewed the great mare's jockey Luke Nolen while riding a horse named Snowy that was lame. Saturday's live race telecast of Black Caviar's superb sequence of 25 consecutive wins was watched by 1.127 million on Seven in Sydney (DAILY TELEGRAPH, 4/14).
