Television news becomes the news in this brief report from TVNZ. In this excerpt newsreader Tom Bradley explains why the beginning of that night's six o'clock bulletin was delayed for 10 minutes. Earlier a small group of Māori protesters occupied the Auckland studio. They were angered by a decision to suspend maori language news show Te Karere during the summer holiday period. Police were called and escorted the protesters from the set. Veteran activist Ken Mair said the group believed Māori and Pākehā news should be treated in the same way.

Key Cast & Crew

From our point of view Māori news should receive the same time allocation as the Pākehā news. It’s as simple as that.
– Ken Mair, Protestor
