Frontseat's back! 10.25pm this Sunday 13th on One.
The Frontseat team's back with Oliver Driver at the helm and Julie Hill joining Jeremy Hansen on the reporting team.
Coming soon: We're screening Taika Waititi's Oscar-nominated short film 'Two Cars, One Night' the night before the 77th Annual Academy Awards (27 Feb).
On this week's show...
Stranger than fiction, not quite fact: Oliver Driver interviews film director Geoff Murphy about 'Spooked' - his film based on events in 'The Paradise Conspiracy'. And the movie is reviewed by none other than Winston 'Monty Churchill' Peters, MP for Tauranga, leader of NZ First.
A world first ... or is it? >From the ashes of Channel Z rises Kiwi - a new 100% New Zealand music radio station. Touted as a world first and backed completely by private media company CanWest, will it work and is it, in fact, a world first? Julie Hill canvasses the backers and the sceptics.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Wanganui: Jeremy Hansen returns to Wanganui to find the Sarjeant Gallery director's job under threat whilst Mayor Michael Laws swans off to a Pacific island, leaving behind a cast of top architects to brainstorm new plans for the city's cultural heart.
AK05 approaches: Oliver has a malinky run-in with some droogs whilst casing out the Auckland Festival preparations, and finds out what Aucklanders are booking for.
And we've got a beautiful new web-site at http://www.frontseat.co.nz/
Plus: We're giving away a copy of 'How to listen to pop music' by Nick Bollinger (Awa Press).
