World Brief

Pubcaster the Australian Broadcasting Corp. announced Thursday it has appointed Australian Film Commission topper Kim Dalton as director of television.

Position has been vacant since Sandra Levy ankled in September to join the Nine Network.

Dalton was CEO of the AFC for six years and has more than 30 years experience in the industry.

Before the AFC he worked for Beyond Intl. and in the late 1980s formed his own production shingle, Warner Dalton, which co-produced the mini-series “The Magistrate” and a telepic, “Street Angels,” both for the ABC.

Dalton’s first challenge will be to address the decline in Oz drama on the pubcaster, which has fallen from more than 100 hours a year in 2001 to just 20 hours in 2005.

Dalton will take up the position late next month. The AFC is hunting for a new topper.
