Homegrown Profiles: The Finns

Television (Full Length) – 2005

This episode of C4's music series Homegrown Profiles looks at the long and distinguished musical careers of Kiwi music icons Tim and Neil Finn. The programme covers the early days of Split Enz, Neil joining the band at the age of 18, and Tim leaving in 1984; plus Neil forming Crowded House, Tim's short stint in his brother's band, the Finn's solo careers, and their two albums recording as the Finn Brothers. Jane Yee's interview with the brothers is revealing and fascinating, and includes great early Split Enz footage.

I was sharing a place at a Mission Bay with Phil Judd and we just started writing songs one night. I can still remember the night. We wrote two songs that night: 'For You' which was our first single and 'Split Enz' which was our kind of theme song.
– Tim Finn
