Behind The Scenes With The Maori Queen

26 October 2005

Behind The Scenes: Koroneihana 2005

Spend time behind the scenes at the 2005 Coronation celebrations of the Maori Queen, Dame Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu, in KORONEIHANA 2005 on Maori Television (Mon Oct 31 and Tues Nov 1 at 6.30 PM).

The two-part reality-style programme documents the stories that emerged before, during and after the commemorations in May that marked her 39th year of reign.

Producer/Director Mina Mathieson – Managing Director of production house m3 media – says the show is about Tainuitanga, the people and their practices, as they once again prepare for this annual event.

Mina Mathieson says viewers will see for themselves just how much effort, organisation, patience and planning goes into the management of the hui.

“The long hours and unrelenting workload are part and parcel of Koroneihana,” she says.

“In contrast, woven between these storylines are the threads that bind - whanaungatanga and commitment to the kaupapa spiced up with a little ‘cheeky darkie’ humour, very much evident as the whanau go about their mahi.”

Join Maori Television as it marks the 39th Coronation celebrations of the Maori Queen with KORONEIHANA 2005 on Monday October 31 and Tuesday November 1 at 6.30 PM.
