AUSSIE GOLD. Darren Gray's consultancy contract as Director Of Programming with the soon to be launched Aussie Gold TV channel is now at an end. "It's been a great experience but was only ever supposed to be a temporary, consultancy arrangement," says Darren, "My initial contract was extended three times but with the workload in running the theatrical agency as well I couldn't do both." "Darren has done a stirling job for us and we wish him well," says a spokesman for Aussie Gold. The channel has not appointed a replacement to date but says it is still on course to launch free-to-air on the Sky platform in the near future.
