National Geographic Live! expands NZ activity


Live shows set for Wellington & Auckland 2014


National Geographic Live returns to NZ and Australia this winter in partnership with Adventure World Travel, which is continuing its partnership with this dynamic series for a third season.

National Geographic Channel, The Intercontinental Hotel Group and Cathay Pacific have also reconfirmed their sponsorship in the series, with photographic company, Olympus, joining as a partner for the first time.

This year, National Geographic Live adds new venues in Wellington, Perth and Wollongong, bringing the series to seven cities across New Zealand and Australia.

After working with Nat Geo Live in 2012 and 2013, Adventure World Managing Director Fiona Hunt is delighted to up the brand’s partnership involvement for the 2014 shows, which start Down Under in July.

“Messages of exploration, adventure, discovery and conservation are all core to the National Geographic mission to inspire people to care about the planet and are also a key focus for Adventure World as we strive to offer our clients a lifetime of extraordinary travel so it’s a perfect partnership,” says Hunt.

“Adventure World is committed to inspire and provide our customers with a holiday that meets and exceeds expectations, holidays of a lifetime. Being able to see and hear from world leading filmmaker Bryan Smith and acclaimed photographer David Doubilet could not be more inspirational,”says Hunt.

Karin Simoncini, Managing Director of FOX International Channels Australia and New Zealand said,“National Geographic Channel (NGC) has been a strong supporter of Nat Geo Live since the very beginning and we are thrilled to be involved in this unique event, showcasing key National Geographic explorers on the ground to audiences both in Australia and New Zealand. NGC’s engaging programming aims to inspire viewers to find out more about people, places and events of our world, and Nat Geo Live is the perfect platform to reinforce our commitment to exploration, conservation and education”.

As the license holder for National Geographic Live in New Zealand and Australia, Sundance Company is delighted to present the popular series for the third year.

“We are very pleased to be working with sponsors that understand and identify with the National Geographic Live philosophy of exploration and discovery,” said Sundance Director Sam Sneddon. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne and the ASB Theatre in Auckland and to forging new relationships with Te Papa Museum in Wellington, the Heath Ledger Centre in Perth and Destination Wollongong and the University of Wollongong in growing new audiences across New Zealand and Australia.’’

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.
