Top Shows On TVNZ Screen Maori Subtitles

Top Shows On TVNZ Screen Maori Subtitles

As part of TVNZ's celebration of Māori Language Week, the broadcaster will be screening Māori Language subtitles on two of its highest rating programmes.

On Wednesday, Shortland Street on TV2 will be captioned in Māori, and on Saturday night Country Calendar on TV ONE will also feature Māori captioning.

In both cases, the captioning will be 'open' - meaning it will be visible to all viewers. In most English-language captioning the service is only visible through Teletext.

The Te Reo subtitles have been prepared by TVNZ's captioning department, with assistance from staff at Waka Huia, the long-running specialist Māori language and culture programme.

Viewers will see and hear Te Reo on all TVNZ channels this week.

Continuity announcements are peppered with Maori words, alongside their English translations, and live programmes are featuring many more greetings and sign-offs in Maori.
