Stateline (TV program)

Stateline is a television current affairs programme produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It provides analysis of state and municipal politics as well as insight into state and regional issues in a current affairs journalistic style. Following the main stories, the last segment of the show is dedicated to regional events. Since 2006 there is also a segment called DIY Stateline which allows members of the Australian public to broadcast a video concerning a local event of importance, such as lobbying for action against a particular cause or for one. The show replaces The 7.30 Report on Fridays. The show is known for its interviews with politicians, and for its coverage of regional issues. The opening credits feature a short piece of music accompanied by a 'flying' animation giving the viewer a trip towards the logo, passing photographs featuring recent events or people related to stories past seen.

It is broadcast on ABC1 on Fridays at 7:30pm with eight separate state and territory specific editions. Each local version is also available nationally on ABC2.
