Days Of Our Lives Returns To New Zealand Screens!

MEDIA RELEASE: 27 February 2013

Days Of Our Lives Returns To New Zealand Screens!

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives...

The fictitious town of Salem, U.S.A., and the dramatic events of the Horton, Brady and Reed families, their friends, neighbours and acquaintances on DAYS OF OUR LIVES will return to our TV screens after almost 3 years.

Lifestyle and entertainment channel Choice TV is excited to be hosting this historic and much loved show “the feedback from our clients has been incredible and there was a huge petition from the fans to keep this show on air in NZ so I expect that there will be some very happy viewers tuning in to Choice TV” said Julia Baylis (Head of Programming and Acquisitions). The last time DAYS OF OUR LIVES aired on NZ TV it was over 5 years behind the US but the first screenings on Choice TV will only be running six months behind. “Yes, a bit has gone on in Salem over the past few years but our favourite heroes, heroines and villains are still there. We’re also starting our run with the shows first ever gay story line,” said Julia Baylis.

Over 47 years old (the show premiered in the US on November 8, 1965) DAYS OF OUR LIVES is the longest running daytime drama. It’s still as popular as ever celebrating its 12,000th episode in the US recently and it’s been keeping up with the times through social media with over 603,000 fans on Facebook.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES can be viewed on CHOICE TV (Freeview Channel 12 and SKY 78) every weekday at 1:30PM, starting Monday 11 March.

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
