Mark Inglis Return to Christchurch

Media Advisory Friday May 19, 2006


Mark Inglis Return to Christchurch

Mark Inglis will be returning to Christchurch sometime during the middle of next week. As yet we cannot provide specific details, at this stage Wednesday is looking most likely.

Mark’s wife, Anne Inglis, said today that Mark and the team have returned to Advanced Base Camp and have been resting before continuing down the mountain. She said that Mark will travel to Base camp by Yak sometime today. They will then fly to Kathmandu from Lhasa and depart for New Zealand on Monday.

Anne said Mark was still finding it very difficult to talk and is in some discomfort due to frostbite.

“He has frostbite in five fingers and his stumps have taken a bit of a pounding so he can’t walk too well at present. Our focus now is to get Mark home and warm him up a little.

“We hope that as many supporters as possible can be at the airport to meet Mark and welcome him home when he arrives. He has so many well-wishers, supportive sponsors and friends, it would be great to give them the opportunity to be at the airport to meet him when he gets off the plane.”

Anne flies out to Kathmandu today to meet Mark, courtesy of donated flights from Thai Airways.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
