YOUR WEEKEND SCOOP


Due To Unprecedented Public Demand...

- The Second Coming is coming again to a screen near you. TV2's Julie Baylis says the station has been swamped by calls, faxes and emails to see a re-run of a documentary screened on October 14 concerning messages from on high. See..Do You Want A Hug? Watch TV2 9.45pm Saturday [1] and Images Of Gods Messenger? - [2] . So far as Scoop can ascertain the documentary was first broadcast in July not October as stated in Scoop's original review. Scoop apologises for the error.
