The Checkout – new ABC series on consumer affairs

A new 10 part series is set to air on the ABC at 8pm on Thursday March 21st, including presenters Craig Reucassel and Julian Morrow (Chaser’s War on Everything and The Hamster Wheel), Kirsten Drysdale (Hungry Beast) and Kate Browne from CFA member CHOICE.

This is great news for consumers, providing another platform for exposing misleading and harmful industry practices.

The Checkout will feature factual issues that affect consumers, some of which will be taken from CHOICE campaigns and research.

In welcoming the show, CHOICE have noted:

The show will take a satirical look at the world of consumer affairs. Regular segments will include Beat the System, light-hearted tips for changing consumer behaviour based on consumer psychology, Product vs Packshot, showing some of Australia’s most lovingly photographed products as they look in real life, and If I Could Say One Thing, bite-sized chunks of advice for consumers from some of Australia’s and the world’s leading consumer advocates and researchers.”
