Several things emerged from last night's launch of the ABC's 2008 schedule.

It's a male network: the three most important people involved in the launch were Kim Dalton, head of ABC TV; Andrew Denton, who topped and tailed the video promo and Tony Jones, who will be the face of news and current affairs at the public broadcaster. The most prominent female presence in the promotional material was actor Georgie Parker who has probably the toughest gig of all on Play School.
