A Week Of It: Does Gibbs World Service Have The Answers For TVNZ?

A Week of It had a chinwag with ACT leader Rodney Hide recently and shot the breeze on the topic of broadcasting. This week an inquiry regarding TVNZ begins in no small part thanks to Mr Hide's urgings. Sadly, Mr Hide's own forays into broadcasting are obscured by the murky mists of time. In the mid 90s Mr Hide acted as an intermediary for Alan Gibbs in running BBC World Service NZ and was even, from time to time, on the radio himself. See...
