Saturday 16 August 2014 | Mabel Wharekawa Burt
The election is just five weeks away and more than 380,000 people may miss the chance to vote the easy way because they're not on the electoral roll by August 20. Mabel Wharekawa-Burt is the National Communications Advisor for the Electoral Commission. In Kia Korero Mai this Saturday, she talks to Eru Morgan about what's being done to reach out to the tens of thousands of Maori and especially younger Maori who are not on any roll. Those who are not on a roll by next Wednesday will need to make a special vote if they enroll after that date. If they don't enroll at all, their vote can't be counted.

Sunday 17 August 2014 | Tame Iti
Police Commissioner Mike Bush and 100 of his colleagues went to Ruatoki this week to apologise for police actions in the 2007 terror raids. The person who picked up their koha was Tuhoe activist Tame Iti, who was sentenced to 30 months in jail on arms charges stemming from the raids. In Kia Korero Mai on Sunday Tame talks about the day of the raids, his time in prison, becoming a role model for other inmates, returning home to Tuhoe, the apology, what now for Tame Iti, and how Tuhoe is moving on

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.
