Synopsis

Paul Holmes signed off editions of his weeknightly current affairs show with "Those were our people today, and that's Holmes tonight". 'Our people' in this 1997 Christmas special — presented from the roof of TVNZ — include seemingly everyone deemed worthy of news in 1997: from surgery survivors, to stowaways (the notoriously laconic Ingham twins) and All Blacks. Reporter Jim Mora finds politicians bustling for cheery airtime; Tom Scott recalls where he was when Princess Di died; and international celebs (from the Spice Girls to Kylie) send wishes downunder.

You've got to stop taking those drugs Paul! 
Yeah. It’s all right. 
Can you see me here? Am I standing in enough light? 
Well tonight we end 1997 with a cracker. We’ve got a big show lined up for you tonight: the good, the bad, the famous ... the fortunate, the less than fortunate, and sharing the night tonight with sports stars, celebrities and notable New Zealanders [are] people you’ve met on the programme this year, people you’ve enjoyed, people you’re curious about and want to see again ... an hour and a half of fun and memories from 1997 you do not want to miss!
