Frontseat, this Sunday 17th Oct, 10.10pm TV One

Our Art: Te Papa has just opened a new semi-permanent collection of NZ art treasures from 1940 - today, featuring McCahons, Killeens, Albrechts and more. Jeremy Hansen asks art & visual culture director Jonathan Mane-Wheoki and the general public whether it's everything they wanted.

America Loves Us: Former Te Papa CEO Cheryll Sotheran was invited to speak at the opening of the new National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, which used Te Papa as a strong model for its development. Dame Cheryll tells Frontseat why.

Hip Hop Holiday: A NZ Herald editorial declared that a grant of $26,000 linked to the phrase 'hip hop' should have set off alarm bells - in the same week that Scribe won 7 Tui NZ Music Awards. Amomai Pihama asks rappers, politicians, academics, and a family member of the 'Tamati hip hop tour scandal' about the economic and social benefits of hip hop culture.

Love In A Cold Climate: Kate Sylvester loves books and Frontseat has a sneak preview of the Mitford-inspired collection she'll be showing on Tuesday 19th October during NZ Fashion Week.

Best regards,

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
