Snakes and Ladders was a very short-lived Australian television game show which aired on Melbourne station HSV-7 in 1959. Hosted by Pat Hodgins, it was a half-hour "jackpot quiz" based on the board game of the same name. It was preceded on the HSV-7's schedule by Strictly for Mothers and followed by Home Decorator. It is extremely unlikely that any of the episodes exist as kinescope recordings, and as such it is likely lost.

My Fair Lady was an Australian television series which aired from 1958 to 1962 on Wednesdays on Melbourne station HSV-7. Little information is available on this series. It was originally part of a line-up titled Home, which featuring various segments including Cooking, Home Decorator and Shopping Guide. Later, it appears the Home branding was dropped. For part of its run it aired at 2:30PM. At one point in 1959 it was the first show on the station schedule for the day, while at another point in 1959 it was preceded by US anthology series episodes of shows like Four Star Playhouse.

The show is described as being aired live, compered by June Finlayson and featured Charles Bush, and featuring contestants, suggesting it was a game show. Other hosts during the run of the series included Vikki Hammond.

Archival status is unknown, but as Australian game shows were rarely kept during the era the show aired in, it is likely the series is either lost or largely missing.
