Revisiting Conversations: Outspoken Champion Of Maori Values

Revisiting Conversations: Outspoken Champion Of Maori Values.

Face Television (formerly Triangle Television) is currently re-broadcasting the cream of episodes from the 2012 season of "In Conversation with Noel Cheer". The Conversations demonstrate the value to be found in gently inquisitive discussions, in contrast to a more inquisitorial style.
This week's returning guest is Titewhai Harawira who provides ideas for the discourse that all who live in Aotearoa/New Zealand find themselves in from time to time. She is outspoken and controversial, she challenges the status quo, because she believes that it is unjust. This Conversation was recorded before the controversial events at Waitangi.
In Conversation with Noel Cheer, Face Television, Monday February 25th at 7:00pm, repeated on Tuesday February 26th at 12 noon.

Face Television, the home of public broadcasting, is found on Sky Television Channel 089 and can also be received in the Auckland region on UHF Channels 41, 42 and 52. It is also live-streamed on www.ecasttv.co.nz. The website www.facetv.co.nz carries programme schedules. Some recent episodes of In Conversation can be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/NoelCheer

In Conversation with Noel Cheer receives funding from New Zealand on Air. This has enabled us to introduce viewers to over 240 New Zealanders on Air (as well as visitors to New Zealand) during six years of unbroken weekly broadcasting.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
