This week on Frontseat, 9.55pm Sunday 10th October, TV One

A Plumb Job: Writer Maurice Gee and Frontseat host Oliver Driver discuss books, films of books, literary awards, fantastical fiction, and whatever happened to Rachel and Theo from 'Under the Mountain'.

Who is Peter Biggs? - Remember 'The donkey's not going to Venice, Paul'? Jeremy Hansen profiles Peter Biggs - ad-man, speech-maker, and the poor soul who fronted Creative NZ's side of the Venice Biennale 'controversy'.

Oamaru is So Hot Right Now - New Zealand's rising arts destination celebrates spring with a new exhibition by the Whitestone Artists' Collective in the historic Grainstore Gallery.

Best regards
