Music Nation - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1995

Kiwi music show Music Nation introduced young presenter Bic Runga to the nation, shortly before she took her microphone skills in another direction. In this debut episode, the show's 'field reporter' Ian Hughes (aka Hugh Sundae) interviews winners at the 31st NZ Music Awards, while Runga introduces many of the accompanying videos. There are double helpings of Supergroove, who took away five awards on the night, and Che Fu sings a thank you speech a cappella. But there are murmurs of discontent over Purest Form taking the public vote for best single.

I thought Emma was going to win it this year. Her vocal performance on 'Greenstone' was stunning.
– Award-winner Fiona McDonald on Emma Paki
