The South Tonight - 1975 Final Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1975

Former presenter Derek Payne returned to front the finale of this Otago-Southland regional magazine show (which was later reborn). A report on strippers aside, the emphasis in this ‘best of’ special is on (often Pythonesque) humour. Highlights include Kevin Ramshaw’s Sam Spade-style private eye hunting Noddy, Payne walking a famous imaginary dog, a search for news in Invercargill, and an extended bloopers reel. An era when newsroom staff were learning their medium in the public eye is evoked, and the opening weather report is a glorious look back at TV’s lo-tech past.

The circus comes to an end, the roundabout slows down and another door closes on one aspect of local television.
