TE HAERENGA : Sean Sullivan
Monday August 8 at 8.30 PM

In the channel’s Monday night New Zealand documentary slot, this one-hour special follows one of New Zealand’s most celebrated boxers during his 2004 campaign in pursuit of the ultimate shot – a chance to square off against Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine in a fight for the world super middleweight title.

Tuesday August 9 at 8.30 PM

This poignant documentary is film maker Safina Uberoi’s tribute to her mother’s journey from Australia to India to wed her husband in the 1960s. The documentary soon unfolds into a complex commentary on the social, political and religious events of 1984 that callously tore the family apart.

Tuesday August 9 at 9.30 PM

The three-part historical drama that examines Australia’s 150-year land war comes to a thrilling conclusion this week. In the final episode – The Government Should Shut It’s Eyes – the uncomfortable political realities of the modern age are addressed.

Saturday August 13 at 9.00 PM

This half-hour short Australian drama traces an extraordinary night in the lives of four young Aboriginal people from the inner-city suburb of Redfern, Sydney. As one duo are on the road to disaster, another couple are on the road to love and belonging, equating to a story of parallel contrasts.

Sunday August 14 at 9.00 PM

Maori Television’s Sunday Feature takes an unsentimental look at life and death amongst Gypsy asylum seekers living in Britain marked by funeral rituals and Turkish football clubs. This documentary film takes issues of identity and asylum into the realm of human context.

Images, review tapes and further information are available on request.
