Hi Folks - we may get some more Telethon excerpts at some stage, including from Auckland. Not everything has been kept, however. If you want to know exactly what does and doesn't exist, you could ask the TVNZ Archive directly...

I think the character from CHIPS was called PONCHERELLO and was played by Erik Estrada

Hi i am trying to get a video of the cook island group from Bairds intermediate school,that perform when that guy from the America series (Chips) was a guest. I'm not sure of the year i'm guessing 1981-1982 but i knew puncuali was there,I got shy every time i felt he was looking at me, lol, I don't know how to spell it but i will right it how it sounds. (Puncuali). He was my first (crusher) and i loved him. Thinking about it makes it all sound alittle silly but thats how it was way back then I would have 11-12 years. I am 40years old and a Moari girl in the Island group,my dad said that the carmera was on me for at least 3 seconds, My children and i would really like see it. Thank you

Can we have the clip where Basil Brush is bantering with Kenny Everett (as Sid Snot), and Kenny bops Basil on the head with a microphone?
