Race Relations 'Bouquet' for Triangle Television

Race Relations 'Bouquet' for Triangle Television

Triangle Television's contributions to race relations and its launch of Triangle Television Wellington, is being singled out for praise this month by Race Relations Commissioner Joris de Bres, of the Human Rights Commission.

The Commissioner awards monthly certificates of acknowledgment to individuals and groups who have made a positive contribution to race relations.

"We like to recognise a wide variety of achievement and contributions to diversity in New Zealand," says Mr de Bres. "Triangle Television is an important means of giving voice to a variety of communities on their own terms. It provides access that is otherwise conditional on other people's editorial decisions. Some of the programmes I have seen on Triangle Television are ones that would not have the same level of access for screening on other mainstream television channels."

The Commissioner's endorsement of Triangle Television's work representing a wide range of cultures will be widely publicised in the Human Rights Commission's monthly e-newsletter On the Bright Side, Positive Contributions to Race Relations, with the following commentary:

"FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF THEIR AUCKLAND CHANNEL, TRIANGLE TELEVISION BEGAN BROADCASTING IN WELLINGTON ON AUGUST 25. THE STATION AIMS TO REFLECT THE DIVERSITY OF WELLINGTON, AND ENCOURAGES WELLINGTONIANS TO TELL THEIR STORIES BY SCREENING THEIR OWN PROGRAMMES.
"THE OPENING LINE-UP INCLUDED PROGRAMMES CURRENTLY SCREENING ON TRIANGLE TELEVISION AUCKLAND THAT HAVE RELEVANCE TO A BROADER AUDIENCE, SUCH AS 'PLANET TV' WHICH FOCUSES ON A BROAD RANGE OF ISSUES INCLUDING POLITICS, SOCIAL ISSUES AND ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS, AND 'DARPAN – THE MIRROR', A SERIES OFFERING STIMULATING INSIGHTS INTO CURRENT NEWS ISSUES FROM AN INDIAN PERSPECTIVE.

Triangle Television Chief Executive Officer Jim Blackman says the Commissioner's acknowledgement is a wonderful compliment to the diverse audiences and programme makers who have contributed to the success of Triangle Television Auckland over the past eight years as well as an endorsement of the new Wellington station's programme line-up.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
