Gruen Planet Series 1 {Giveaway}

The Gruen Planet is a spin-off of the ABC’s hit show, Gruen Transfer… and it is just as clever and witty as the original.

The Gruen Plant is hosted by Wil Anderson (who by the way, is gorgeous AND hilarious) with regulars Russel Howcroft and Todd Sampson. They are joined by a rotating cast of experts.

Gruen Team

Together, they lift the lid on the persuasion business, examining the stories behind the stories that fill our screens.

It unpicks the spin, branding, image control and advertising that permeate our lives, asking how and why we are convinced to try, buy and believe.

How do mining companies make us love them?

What are the Kardashians and is there an ointment that will help get rid of them?


If you didn’t watch Gruen Planet when it was on television, or want to re-live the clever banter, here is your chance. I have 2 copies to give away.

For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post, telling me what your favourite television show is (at the moment).

I have just discovered “Extreme Couponing” on Austar (or Foxtel for you city-folk). It is addictive. Highly addictive.

This giveaway is open to Australian residents only and the giveaway will close at midday on Sunday 8 April 2012 (AEDST).

The winner will be chosen randomly and announced here on my blog.
