I agree, GMA was a great show!
22 June 2007 | by tootsterSee all my reviews

Its funny to see that no-one has entered this message thread or the website since 2002! So I thought I would expand on it a little bit and keep up the communication thread.

I watched an old clip of GMA hosted by Gordon Elliot and Kerri-Ann Kennerly in 1982 via YouTube. It was a sight to see after 25 years! The opening shows locations of each State Capital e.g. Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne etc. The High Rises were minimal then, some staying the same. Kerri looks extremely young, you almost forget that she was in this show originally. As you remember her now in the morning show. So in 1982, I was only 6 then, and my Nan used to watch the show religiously as it was the first morning show for Australia. With all others that have followed today e.g. Sunrise, Today Show, Mornings etc.

So in the early 1990's, Bert came on the show. And I remember watching it a lot in 1995, when Belvedere, Collette Mann (Doreen from Prisoner), Bert as the host was absolutely popular!! I remember it was. Its ratings started to decline in the early 2000's and I think people didn't watch it as much because it became the same old record. I still watched it from time to time. In 2004 - 2005, you saw an older Belvedere, Myra came on board, cast were ageing and the thing that frustrated me the most is the frequent sales pitch of 'Buyers World'! It was stretched and that's all the show seemed to advertise. It became stale. I knew GMA had a lot more potential than that.

So overall, I loved both the early GMA and of course Bert Newton and his crew hosting GMA in the later years. Bert is a funny man and is Australian TV Personality. I agree at least Bert should have been nominated or granted a Logie award for this. It is such a shame that GMA declined and was axed in 2005 because there was no more flavour, juicy interview topics or variety any-more. Hopefully some-day they may bring GMA out as a series on DVD highlighting some of the funniest / best episodes during the show's lifetime.

Good on you Bert! Cheers.
