Television (Excerpts) – 1994

E
Exempt

In these excerpts from TV2's late night news show, Simon Dallow watches new American boy band All-4-One perform in an Auckland record store and interviews them about the trappings of fame. Meanwhile, Marcus Lush channels Country Calendar as he investigates a novel new agri-business venture: an emu and ostrich farm near Katikati (although it's unlikely his colleagues on TVNZ's venerable rural show ever gave their watches to animals to play with). Lush's verdict? The world's biggest living birds ("because we killed the moa") are "more fun than sheep".

News is news, and we must respect that but, while journalism has a lineage and is very important, it shouldn’t conceive of itself as the only way to communicate.
– Neil Roberts - NZ Listener, 05 March 1994, p 29
