Town and Around: Auckland Highlights

Television (Full Length) – 1967

Presenter Keith Bracey picks out the highlights for this end of 1967 edition of the Auckland magazine show (which first debuted on 18 April 1966). The clips tend towards the light-hearted, including garden gnomes and a man getting music from a carrot. Among the Kiwi guests are singer Lee Grant, axeman Sonny Bolstad, and Pavlova Paradise author Austin Mitchell (before he returned to England). Barry Crump plays hero in the final musical number, and elsewhere mans up for singer Tex Morton's sharpshooting act. Also appearing: an amazingly manoeuvrable horse, and Australian actor Chips Rafferty.

You should not have a gnome unless you are prepared to look after it.
– Sage advice from Town and Around
