Frontseat, Sunday 30th April

Frontseat, Sunday 30th April, 10.15pm on TV One (after ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’)

New Zealand’s Greatest Painting:

The people have spoken and New Zealand’s Greatest Painting is... well, you’ll have to watch to find out. From a Top Ten voted for by public and art experts alike, a clear winner has emerged. Refresh yourself with the ten finalists on our website – – then watch the sparks fly on Sunday night.

FROM DUNEDIN TO NASHVILLE: To celebrate the onset of NZ Music Month, Frontseat presents an exclusive preview of a new documentary about David Kilgour. A member of The Clean, Kilgour lives a fairly low-key life in Dunedin, whilst being hugely respected by seminal US bands like Yo La Tengo, Lambchop and Pavement. He recorded his most recent solo album ‘Frozen Orange’ in Nashville, and Hawkes Bay-based filmmaker Bridget Sutherland documented the journey. Julie Hill travelled from Dunedin to Napier to speak to both (we wouldn’t let her go to Nashville, unfortunately).

ART WORLD DRAMA: Running an art gallery can be a lonely business for a one-woman or one-man operation. For years local art dealers have talked about setting up a professional body to represent them. Lo and behold, there’s now not one, but two, art dealers’ associations. Overkill? Josie McNaught investigates.

PLUS: Frontseat is repeated at 8.00am on Saturday morning. This Saturday 29th: Goodbye, Pork Pie Profits, trouble in the Christchurch art world, musician Don McGlashan, and sculptor Bill Culbert.

Best regards,

The Frontseat Team TV One, Sunday Nights Repeat screening 8.00am the following Saturday
