that is soooo unfortunate. i wonder if it was money or content?
Nice to have you and Mr E on the show, Michele
and you too brendhan.
haere mai to you all - welcome.
nice work Eusa. very meditative, perhaps we could use that as a recurring motif throughout?
where is Frauline Kadife? i was looking forward to the potato sack couture, especially being only 12cm tall standing on my hind legs.
Do they actually know what they're advertising next to?
let's make sure they do
People SAY they want [...but]
well with respect Damian, because what i've seen of your work i think is very good, that's a pretty standard industry defence. but for one thing it conveniently ignores the fact that viewing trends and tastes take a while to develop and build. the rare examples of long-format high-brow programming we see these days are invariably one-offs (therefore never getting a chance to build), and perhaps because of the lack of opportunities to practice, often not that well executed (thus audiences change channels to more familiar fare).
there is no evidence to say today's audiences would consistently shun long format high-brow interviews because when was the last time they had a chance to rekindle a taste for them? the closest thing to it is Agenda, which while being a great program, is safely tucked away in ghetto slots to make sure audiences don't develop too much of a taste for a show that requires dollars and talent to make.
obviously there is some level of misrepresentation in some self-reporting about consumption habits and preferences (surveyors call them "demand characteristics"), but i think they are often over-played as a defence.
Investigate is calling for an inquiry into the police
yeah, well i guess it depends on which police IW thinks need investigating (i don't recall him championing an enquiry into the Rotorua allegations), and what interests IW's targets might be threatening (if I recall correctly his target had supported an investigation into allegations regarding officers who targeted vulnerable groups).
IW clearly has no qualms with information provided by Igour.
I guess he just has an odd view of what bent means, but then he may also think that the earth is flat and was made in 7 days.
OMG SnT, get that man a PR minder.
Can the media please try to take this a little more seriously?
i agree, it's pretty foul. this is about a mass murder of almost an entire family.
and the Privvy Council's report went to considerable lengths to emphasise that while a "substantial miscarriage of justice" had taken place with his conviction (due to the way the trial and evidence had been handled), Bain has not been found innocent.
The computer was turned on circa 6.45am and the message (You were the only one who deserved to stay) left on screen. Both defense and prosecution have argued about the timing since David was finishing his paper round circa 6.45am
what i've never understood about this line of "evidence" is that it is not hard to change the CMOS settings on a computer to jerry whatever time the machine "thinks" it was when it did something, without leaving a trace of the time adjustment.
interesting. i wonder what JK's MacGuffin is? a muesli bar perhaps, plastic tiki?
don't want to go all Versailles on them
true but don't go all "Peace in our time" on them either.
