    Oh please let Kim Hill interview him while she's on MR. Please God.

    but is willing to assume and use his position to sway the masses anyway – firm evidence that age does not bring wisdom…

    He's not exactly an inspiring leader, is he?

    Sad about Stella. She was a personality-plus dog.

    That is good. And I have been watching Campbell Live after all this kerfuffle. After the disappointment of the first programme that had fluffy duck stories, I've enjoyed the following two and will go onto watch as a patriotic duty! I loved what Fran O'Sullivan said last night on the Daily Blog live-streaming event: Campbell live has "moments of brilliance".

    I just wish I had a peoplemeter.

    Making money from making crap can't be all that satisfying ultimately. Reminds me of Theresa Gattung many years ago saying that profit to Telecom shareholders was more important than service for the customers.

    And I watched CL tonight - better.

    Thanks, Craig. I'll check out "Pinkoes and Traitors".

    I enjoyed Q&A this am, not the bit on dollar parity so much but the section on city planning and the Greek economy. Good and relevant causes, passionate people, engaged interviewers and presenters. (We have to forgive Hannah DP for the Slater piece on Seven Sharp) Why wouldn't the rest of NZ want to see that sort of thing packaged with the news? Before it I saw 15 minutes of "Attitude". Once again, fascinating. Maybe I am feeling a bit of Golden Age nostalgia but I kind of think we had that sort of TV in prime time back in the 70s to 90s???!!!

    As for Golden Ages of TV, isn't there one going on in parts of the world, USA, France, Scandinavia, UK (?): The Wire, Breaking Bad, True Detective, The Bridge, The Killing, Borgen, Spiral, Transparent, Mad Men, Black Mirror, The Missing.

    Hmmmm. Sort of see where you're coming from but "risible", "dreck" and "dotage" seem a bit OTT.

    Can't agree with you here. Brian Edwards has just written a really good post on John Campbell. When he and Ian Fraser were around on TV we had primetime current affairs and serious interviews. I remember feeling indignant because Ian Fraser was rude to the Shah of Iran.

    There were art programmes. There were regional programmes in the 7 pm spot which were light entertainment but less fluffy than what we get now (?)
