This Sunday on Frontseat, TV One 10.35pm

THEN COME PROFITS:

A Footballer’s Wife (Zoe Lucker), a Dancing with the Stars runner-up (Shane Cortese), a plot about infidelity in which love is the winner on the day. Oliver Driver talks to playwright James Griffin and director David McPhail about whether their new play “Then Comes Love” is more than just an obvious ploy to get audiences into theatres (and whether there’s anything wrong if it’s not!).

LIFE AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD:

Poet Cilla McQueen waxes lyrical about life in Bluff and reads from her tenth volume of verse, “Fire-Penny”, which contains glimpses of her ancestral home of St Kilda in the Hebrides and features poems about widowhood.

BEFORE THE THAW:

Julie Hill heads to New Plymouth to find out how the Taranaki Festival of the Arts is faring in its new winter time-slot, to celebrate the region’s Premier Creative Places Award and bid farewell to Govett-Brewster director and Frontseat friend Greg Burke.

THE TALE OF THE LOST SCREEN AWARDS HOST:

A little something special to finish the show (which could help to explain a small item of gossip in the Sunday Star-Times last week).

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