Wheel Of Fortune (Australian Game Show)
Wheel of Fortune is an Australian television game show produced by Grundy Television. The programme aired on the Seven Network from 1981 to 2004 and November 2005 to July 2006, and is mostly based on the same general format as the original U.S. version of the programme. After Wheel of Fortune ended, the format was revived by the Nine Network in 2008 as Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune, until it was canceled in June 2008 due to low ratings following arguments from long-time host John Burgess concerning why he didn't like the show.
An earlier unrelated show also titled Wheel of Fortune had been broadcast on the Nine Network. That version had been developed by Reg Grundy as a radio game show before it transferred to television in 1959.

Famous quotes containing the words game, wheel and/or fortune:
“The first requirement of politics is not intellect or stamina but patience. Politics is a very long run game and the tortoise will usually beat the hare.”

“So I was glad of the fogs
Taking me to you
Undetermined summer thing eaten
Of grief and passage where you stay.
The wheel is ready to turn again.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“For just as poets love their own works, and fathers their own children, in the same way those who have created a fortune value their money, not merely for its uses, like other persons, but because it is their own production. This makes them moreover disagreeable companions, because they will praise nothing but riches.”
—Plato (c. 427347 B.C.)
