Substance Over Style

Who is New Zealand's top clothing exporter? The hype may be disproportionate to actual contribution.

Golden Days

Ex-pat New Orleans resident Paula Morris is back in New Zealand for the release of her second novel, "Hibiscus Coast".

The Art Provenance Challenge

In a follow-up to our August survey about buying art on-line, Frontseat takes work by a major artist for sale at an online art auction site and sets a challenge: How easy it is to determine the provenance of the work before you hand your cash over? Josie McNaught talks to Goldie experts Alister Taylor and Roger Blackley during the challenge.

We Love Men, Too

Poet Bub Bridger's "best of" has just been published. She hadn't written a single story the day she enrolled in a writing course at the University of Victoria at the age of 48. Three decades later, she is a national treasure, with work published in Maori, New Zealand and international collections. She talks to Julie about just how much she loves men.

Next week: British playwrighting legend Alan Bennett talks about his most recent stage success, ‘History Boys’, and one of the stars of the play (and the forthcoming film) reveals why he didn’t think Bennett’s latest work was up to much chop at first. ‘History Boys’ is coming to the 2006 NZ International Arts Festival.
