This Sunday on Frontseat, TV One 10.25pm

MEET THE ICONS: Oliver Driver meets Margaret Mahy in the kitchen of the Wellington Events Centre ahead of the Arts Foundation of NZ Icon Awards, and records 92 year old opera maestro Donald Munroe’s goosebump-inducing speech.

HARRY POTTER AND THE PHENOMENON OF THE TEEN FANTASY NOVELS: Writer Elizabeth Knox talks about Harry Potter madness and her own new fantasy series for young adults, “Dreamhunter” and “Dreamquake”.

ET QU’IMPORTE QU’ILS NE PARLENT PAS LA LANGUE: Many New Zealand novelists have had their works published in French, never mind that most of them can’t speak the language. Jeremy Hansen meets writer/translator Pierre Furlan, and finds out why Alan Duff, Chad Taylor and Elizabeth Knox often feel like dairy farmers when their books are published overseas.

SOUTHERN REALIST: Julie Hill visits award-winning painter Simon Richardson at his Broad Bay studio and discovers he is something of an anomaly in the art world.

CAR TROUBLE: In celebration of Montana National Poetry Day (Friday 22 July) Te Mata poet laureate Jenny Bornholdt reads “Then Murray Came” for Frontseat.

ALSO, ARTSVILLE THIS SATURDAY 16th JULY: The final Artsville for this series features a documentary about the Mangere-domiciled cast of “The Sons of Charlie Paora” taking the play to London (British actor Lennie James from 24 Hour Party People makes an appearance). There’s also an on-the-road documentary of Salmonella Dub’s epic tour of Europe.

Best regards, The Frontseat Team TV One, Sunday Nights (repeated the following Sunday at 6.30am)
