Hero image for On Camera - Rolf Harris

On Camera - Rolf Harris

Television (Excerpts) – 1970

This excerpt from the On Camera series sees Australian entertainer Rolf Harris recording in NZBC’s Christchurch studios for an episode of children’s TV show Kidset. In an ensuing interview — popping with sound effects made using only his voice — he talks about cracking his wobble board, his advocacy for aboriginal music, hit song ‘Two Little Boys’, and differences between children’s and adult audiences. Daughter Bindi drops in before Harris muses on being air-sick, and pounamu hunting in Hokitika. In 2014 Harris was convicted of numerous sex offences.

I’m fascinated by Australian aboriginal music, and the sounds they create … I always feel there must be some way to present this sort of music to the white man, and to get it through to the western ear, if you can call it that.
