A tipster tells us a new morale-boosting effort at the ABC isn’t having the desired effect:

“ABC insiders are underwhelmed at the announcement by befuddled head of television Richard Finlayson that there will be in house awards for employee of the month and of the year. No one put their hand up for the first monthly award, and staff had to be dragooned into nominating this month. The annual awards, dubbed the BellBird and Playschool Prizes should be a real hoot.”
