For nine years TVNZ's Top Half brought local news to Auckland and the upper North Island. In these excerpts a multicultural street festival is staged in Karangahape Road; the people of Ponsonby worry that their suburb's character is being lost to developers; there's a tantalising glimpse of a David Bowie concert; Dylan Taite finds country rockers The Warratahs busking on Ponsonby Road; local businesses in K Road are concerned about encroaching sleaze; and it is impossible to go wrong with a story about a baby orangutan and a camera shy mother.

Not your usual bunch of melancholia freaks who charge up and down the pop charts.
