both shows repeated from 5pm onwards


Saturday 13th April - Several Māori business and iwi leaders are in China as part of a trade delegation led by Prime Minister John Key and Māori Affairs Minister Pita Sharples to discuss investment and joint ventures in farming, fishing, forestry and tourism. This has attracted a range of responses from Maoridom, there’s enthusiastic anticipation from those supporters who can see key of opportunities emerging from such a relationship, to those who urge to proceed with caution, and of course the predictable doom and gloom messages around the pitfalls of foreign investment, especially if these foreign investors are of Asian extraction and what it means in terms of getting into arrangements that encourage foreign ownership.

Eruera Morgan speaks with Meng Foon, Mayor of Gisborne, who is Chinese, and has spent all his life growing up with Maori in the Gisborne and East Coast region. In the past Mayor Foon has been very vocal about the benefits of a vibrant business relationship between Maori and Chinese, the opportunities it would bring and he believes it is very much a road to prosperity for Maori.


Eruera also speaks with leading Maori business woman Hinerangi Edwards - Hammond from Ngati Ruanui, a director of Maori business Aatea Solutions; she is also a director of Maori land corporation Parininihi ki Waitotara and a graduate of Agri – Women’s Development Trust. Hinerangi is emphatic that these kinds of initiatives need to have a comprehensive trickle down effect to Maori communities if they are to be successful.

Sunday 14th April – Former British Prime Minister Baroness Margaret Thatcher passed away this week.

Apart from being Britain’s first woman PM, Baroness Thatcher was the Last of the Mohicans in regards to a being staunch “tory”, right winger who proudly and staunchly represented the interests of the bourgeoisie upper class during her time as PM . Her mates at the time included the likes of Rob Muldoon and Ronald Regan.

Her death marks the end of an era. Politics have changed markedly since Baroness Thatcher was in politics thirty odd years ago.

The NZ political scene now sees a concerted push to win middle NZ by the major parties.

The demarcation lines are blurred, Nationals party policies are also the Labour Party’s policies and their respective points of difference are becoming increasingly more difficult to identify.

To fill the void extreme left and right wing parties have emerged over the years such as The Greens, Alliance, and Mana on left and ACT, and the Progressives on the right, with NZ First and The Maori Party somewhere in the middle.

The Maori Party’s Tariana Turia has said previously that political parties such Mana are about the classes whereas her party recognises and focuses on Maori needs and aspirations first and foremost. Turia contends our people come from a broad socio – economic spectrum.


Eruera Morgan speaks with our political commentator Henare Kingi who gives his view on how the political climate has evolved/devolved over the past 3 decades


Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.


Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama

Review: Howard Davis On Olivier Assayas' 'Personal Shopper'

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
