The Factory was a three hour music television show that ran during the late 1980's. It was recorded in Melbourne which was broadcast live across Australia on the ABC National Television Network on Saturday mornings containing live bands, music video clips and stories and segments of interest to a teen audience.


Bruce Butler - Talent Coordinator / Researcher
Bruce Butler was the researcher and over the next two years also wrote the host links, interview questions and various segments. He also selected all the video clips and live acts that appeared on the show. Each week he would have a touring international guest, an established local band and an unsigned act.

When The Factory came to an end it was replaced by a five night a week music based show called Countdown Revolution. Bruce Butler stayed on primarily as Talent Co-ordinator but was also programming the music content and writing segments.
