RNZ to Broadcast Tsunami Memorial Day Service

Radio New Zealand to Broadcast Memorial Day Service
to New Zealand, the Pacific and parts of Asia

Radio New Zealand will carry a live broadcast of the memorial service to be held on Sunday 16th January for victims of the Boxing Day earthquake and tsunami. The broadcast will be available throughout New Zealand, the Pacific and parts of Asia.

National Radio will carry a live broadcast of the inter-faith memorial service from the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Auckland from 1.30 pm to 2.30 pm including one minute's silence at 1.59 pm.

Radio New Zealand International will carry the memorial service to its Pacific and Asian audiences. Radio New Zealand International broadcasts on a short wave signal that can be heard throughout the Pacific, and parts of Asia, including Indonesia.

Concert FM will break its scheduled programme at 1.59 pm for one minute's silence.

The Radio New Zealand website will carry a link to access a live stream broadcast for internet users in New Zealand and for expatriots or those travelling overseas.

Some changes will be made to scheduled programming on National Radio:
Two hours of special programming will replace scheduled programmes between 10.00 am and midday. Talking Point (BBC) looks at the long term implications of international aid to affected regions. Go Digital (BBC) looks at the tsunami and the role of the internet. Science in Action (BBC) covers the mechanics of earthquakes and Assignment (BBC) considers the impact of the disaster for Sri Lanka’s fragile political situation.

Radio New Zealand has offered a live feed of the memorial service to other broadcast media. Several independent radio stations in New Zealand have accepted the offer and will also carry the service on Sunday.

and are funded through New Zealand On Air
