City pies and Big Dog

What: Inside The Arena
Where: University of Newcastle Conservatorium Hall
When: Monday August 30, 1999

'THE idea is simple. Mikey, Sandy and I are just going to drop in at the DARBY ST PIE SHOP, stock up, swan over to the NEWCASTLE CONSERVATORIUM OF MUSIC, flop into the lounge chairs, turn the telly on and wait for our special guest BIG DOG to arrive.

'What could be more entertaining than that?'

This is how television critic TONY SQUIRES sees the first outside broadcast of his pay TV show INSIDE THE ARENA in Newcastle next week.

Guest stars to the special live pre-recorded show at the Conservatorium of Music at 1pm on Monday, August 30, will be fellow former Novocastrians, MIKEY ROBBINS and THE SANDMAN. Free tickets for 400 audience members are available from the ARENA web site at www.arenatv.com.au - first in best dressed. (Guests must register here to attend).

Squires, Mikey and Sandy will each share their favourite television moments on the program which this week features ANDREW DENTON. 'There is a very good reason we are taking Inside The Arena to Newcastle,' Squires said.

'I learned how to watch television in Newcastle. That's a debt that's awfully difficult to repay.'

ARENA is produced by XYZ ENTERTAINMENT and is available on FOXTEL and AUSTAR. The show will screen at 7.30pm on Monday, August 30. TE
