On Frontseat, this Sunday after Angels in America on TV One...

SOFA, Not So Good: Canterbury University appears to be abandoning its School of Fine Arts gallery just two years after it opened citing upkeep difficulties. Why are the arts often sacrificed in a financial crisis? Jeremy Hansen canvases the art school galleries of New Zealand.

Just Sign Here: There's a new movement to improve the reputation of New Zealand's beleaguered actors' union. One contentious proposal is that Actor's Equity align with the powerful Aussie union, MEAA (Media & Entertainment Arts Alliance). Emma Robinson O'Brien talks to those for and against, whilst Oliver Driver debates local actors' conditions with King Kong casting director Liz Mullane and Insiders Guide to Happiness star Fraser Brown.

I Can Hear You Making Holes in the Silence, Don (and Charlotte, and Mahinarangi, and Graham): After her successful compilation of songs set to James K Baxter's words, Charlotte Yates is at it again. For the past 6 months many of NZ's top composers have been putting the poems of Hone Tuwhare to music. Frontseat has an exclusive audience at four of these recording sessions.

Plus: We're giving away a copy of 'Michael Smither - Painter' by Trish Gribben.

Best regards,

The Frontseat Team TV One after Angels in America
