Bunny is here on the island where we live and Tony Wood comes over to sing with him. Being in Australia so far from home is hard but our island is like NZ in the 50's and that is some compensation.
Seeing Christchurch in its former glory is wonderful.

OMG just found this clip - I was a Maggie Burke Dancer - would also love to know if the Loxene Golden Disc Awards film is still available.

Great stuff; no budget but plenty of real talent. Excellent to be reminded of what genuine class acts Steve Gilpin and Marc Williams were.

Wow Pop Co was pretty happening for 1974 !.
Interesting David McPhail producer.
Avalon could have learnt a thing or two from this, i meen RTR was GR8, but this is better.
Loved part 3 showing ChCh in one piece with the dancers, and Space Waltz in colour and the complete clip, and Wellington rockers Rockinghorse.
Do NZOS have any Loxene Golden Disc Awards film or is it all lost or dumped.
Thanks for the classic gold NZOS, oh and the NZBC colour is Fab !. ;-)

What a great clip of the Chapa in Hagley Park - Dick Watson a great singer now lives in Aus (still singing).
I really hope they haven't destroyed the older Popco episodes - I want to see clips of Link (Only time Could Let Us Know) and Ticket (Mr Music).

Living in Melbourne now but was touring with different band's i.e Red Hot Pepper's, Swellsfoot Assembly in 74, Backed Bunny Walter's up North in the early 70's and played the same gig's with Father time as they where known before they where MiSex. Fantastic to see this old footage.

Brilliant! Amazing to see this again. NZBC had just commissioned colour cameras in time for The Commonwealth Games. Congratulations to the artistes and production team in that wonderful city!
