An institution. Oft bandied around for far lesser pairings, Margaret & David surely are the epitome of that which casual movie goers and fanatics alike seek out for their opinion (and argument) on the latest releases. The move opens up Wednesday nights for ABC1 to deliver more comedy too. From the press release:


AT THE MOVIES with Margaret and David returns for 2013 on a new day, and in a new timeslot!

Once again this year, Margaret and David hope to make people excited about going to the movies. Whether you agree with David, or instead favour Margaret’s view, you can’t help but be swept away by their contagious passion for big-screen storytelling. Margaret and David are two of the country’s most valued and respected movie critics, and committed advocates for the arts, and over the years the iconic pair and At the Movies have become must-watch television for a large portion of the movie going public.

Controller ABC1, Brendan Dahill says, “Along with Margaret and David’s enduring appealand Australia’s appetite for movies, it made sense to put them front and centre in the heart of the schedule. Paired with Artscape it makes a genuine midweek destination for all lovers of art.”
