Series Synopsis

Kaleidoscope was a magazine-style arts show which ran from 1976 to 1989. In 1980 the show was promoted to a 90 minute, primetime slot on Fridays, doubling its audience in the process. Over the next four years it collected three Feltex awards for Best Speciality Programme. Items varied in length and covered a broad range of topics, with the focus usually on a single artist.  Hosts over the years included newsreader Angela D'Audney, future Auckland music professor Heath Lees, and Warratahs fiddler Nic Brown.
