Channel 0/10 & the VFA

Has anyone ever compiled a list of all the channel 0/10 VFA games?

Like these days with ABC what did they base their decision on when choosing the game to broadcast?

How many clubs never got a VFA game televised?

StationHotel probably has the most comprehensive collection.

Channel 0 televised the VFA from 1967 to 1986. The ABC have televised from 1987 to current. Channel 2 also covered early games from 1957 until around 1963.
Channel 0 also covered Saturday games as well as Sunday on most weeks from 1967 until mid/late 70s. I have a semi list compiled as does Station Hotel. Probably Cobrascorer would have a more up to date list of channel 0 games televised.
Cookgalea they also televised practice games in the early 70s. In 1971 they televised a game between Preston v Eaglehawk.
You can research a full list if you go to the Museum and go through the TV Guides.
Try check the age if they are online.

Hi station hotel that would be fantastic! I'm happy Somone has researched & documented them as I am sure it took you ages.
