To Whom it may concern,
We are writing to you today in regards to your recent decision to cancel the TV show “A place to call
home”, and to express our detestation towards this outcome.
As a group, we feel that not only is this decision an undesirable one as we all enjoy(ed) watching the
show, but the fact that it has been replaced with off shore entertainment (Castle) is certainly a
detrimental decision to the Australian film and television industry.
A place to call home appealed to a lot of viewers, young and old, male and female and that clearly
reflected in the shows viewer ratings. If you refer to the viewer statistics taken from the 13th of July
2014, you will see that “A place to call home” ranked 7th overall for the evening with more than one
million viewers. To lead on that the decision behind cancelling this show due to viewer ratings
clearly isn’t substantiated here, and we would like to receive a more in depth, or rather, better
explanation behind cancelling the show, with some form of evidence to support these claims.
Furthermore, you claim in your recent promotions of the season two DVD collection, that the series
was the “most popular” and the “the most watched” series on Australian television. Again, this does
not reflect on your decision to cancel the show due to popularity issues.
Given the recent negative controversies behind your shows such as “What really happens in Bali”,
“House Rules” and “My Kitchen Rules” it perplexes us that these shows are still either regularly aired
and/or still heavily funded despite the negative impact it has on its viewers. A case in question, the
young man who gloats about his sexual encounters, and tells a female friend to get breast implants
on the show, “What really happens in Bali”. While the second scenario can be perceived as a rather
derogatory comment and may offend some women, the first scenario can only be described as filth;
and the fact that this takes precedence over a show such as A place to call home, clearly displays a
low morality rate amongst the decision makers at Channel 7.
As you may know, there have been online petitions and Facebook pages created to save “A place to
call home” and included with this letter is a number of posts from disgruntled viewers regarding
your decision to stop production of this show – as you do not recognise verbal or online
communications as a form of “official complaint” we have taken it upon ourselves to formally submit
our complaints in writing, and in bulk to save on postage costs.
We hope to hear a formal response from you soon, and would once again like to express our
deepest animosity towards your decision. You have certainly lost a lot of loyal viewers.
