Underground Homicide MELBOURNE'S underground railway loop is used for the location setting of Homicide's investigation entitled Stand In For Terror, in which Detective Pat Kelly (John Stanton), right, captures an escaped psychopath with a condition known as hyperaccusive; an instability of mind in which any noise can become unbearable. Hugh Logan plays the escapee HSV-7, 730 p.m. Tuesday, September 20. AW this week takes an all-important step towards becoming Australia's first all-news radio station. From Monday, September 9, it is increasing its Monday to Friday news content average from two hours 11 minutes daily to over eight hours. Making the announcement the station's general manager (Mr. Ron Fowell) said: "The introduction of 3AW Newsradio has been on our planning boards for almost 12 months". Only the timing had to be changed to accommodate the participating sister station in Sydney, 2GB, which re- bA"- T4-J .i '- h ' Gerard Kennedy fights TOE The Scratch And Never Say Die, the fourth episode of the ABC's goldfields series concentrates on the arrival of Gentleman Jack Dawson, former boxing champion from England at Crocker's Cully.

Newsradio is regarded as logical development of AW's news-orientated talkback and talk segments introduced six years ago. The contention that there is a demand in Melbourne for actuality news broadcasts is reflected in recent surveys, and AW's own telephone news survey (a record 407,000 calls in July). "The seven top Amc rican radio markets attracting radio listening audiences of millions have shown in the most recent surveys that news, information-and-: talk format stations collectively draw the largest audiences in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas and Washington, DC," said Mr. Fowell. Listeners should begin to feel the impact of Newsradio particularly in the hours 6 a.m. to 8.15 a.m., 12 noon to 1 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., when the greatest concentrations of newscast material would be broadcast.- Mr. Fowell emphasised that the station would not be "cutting back on our talk programmes which are an essential ingredient to the news and information format. "People like Ormsby Wilkins, Claudia and Norman Banks, will still activate news and if anything their contribution to 3AW News-radio will be more important than ever before," said Mr. Fowell.

HSV-7 has announced it is repeating its Paul Hogan programmes at 7.30 p.m., Fridays, starting on September 13, with Hogan in London. The change, an-n o u n c e d earlier this week has left Seven network executives tight-lipped and unofficial sources say legal advisers are looking at Hogan's contract with Seven in an effort to hold him to their network. Meanwhile at Nine there is a spirit of self-satisfaction summarised by the heading of the release announcing the move: "Hogan Returns Home".
