Lew Pryme - Welcome to my World

Television (Full Length) – 1990

Lew Pryme's life was a wild ride that took in everything from rock and roll to rugby before it was cut short by AIDS in 1990 (he was 51). This moving documentary interviews an ailing Pryme reflecting on his journey and (still secret) sexuality; it follows him from Waitara to becoming one of the most popular hip-swinging music stars of the 60s. He went on to manage singers Mark Williams, Rob Guest and Tina Cross; and in the early 80s he became the first executive director of Auckland Rugby Union, introducing cheerleaders and 'pizazz' to Eden Park.

He brought a new pizazz to the spectacle of Eden Park. No longer did you go along and watch brass bands (with respect to brass bands). Lew changed the whole thing to a day's family entertainment.
