Locally produced programming is the most significant contribution any television station can make to its community, and DDQ has had a proud tradition of producing first class local programs from the very beginning.
Programs like the Ch 10 Juniors, Relax with 10, Rural Views – later Landline, Local Shows coverage and of course the Local News were mainstays of the early years. On average DDQ produced more local programs than any other regional television station in Queensland and was second only to NBN for the most number of locally produced shows produced in regional Australia.

This list of programs is far from complete; please add to it when you can think of additional programs that have been produced locally. Also be sure to comment and tell us some stories about the programs.
