"Agenda" Links Up With University

"Agenda" Links Up With University

The TVOne political interview show, "Agenda" is linking up with students from The University of Auckland's Department of Political Studies in a unique partnership to cover this election campaign.

In a new segment called "Fact Finder" each week the post-graduate students, under the direction of Senior Lecturer, Dr Jennifer Curtin, will research statements made by politicians during the campaign and investigate their accuracy.

"Agenda" will broadcast the results of the students' work each week starting from this Sunday September 14.

The programme is also seeking to involve "citizen journalists" this election. In a new segment called "Campaign Cam" it is asking viewers to send in their handy cam and mobile phone videos of politicians and political candidates on the campaign trail.

In Camapign Cam "Agenda" has three Samsung Global mobile phones from Telecom to give away for the best informal amateur video. These videos will be broadcast on-air and placed on the web site.

More information on both these segments, plus a new behind-the-scenes blog from our Executive Producer Richard Harman, is on www.agendatv.co.nz (http://www.agendatv.co.nz/).

Agenda is broadcast on TVOne at 10.00 a.m. every Sunday.

Gordon Campbell: On DHB Deficits And Free Trade

Currently the world is looking on aghast at the Trump administration’s plans to slash Obamacare, mainly in order to finance massive tax changes that will deliver most of their gains to the wealthy. Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need... More>>

Greens' Response: Slum-Like Rentals Exposed In Renting Review

“...The grim findings of the review are a wakeup call about the true state of rentals in this country. Too many renters are festering in slum-like conditions under the thumb of landlords who have largely unchecked powers and ignore tenants’ complaints when it suits them.” More>>


Gordon Campbell: On The Life And Times Of Peter Dunne

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>


Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Campaign Launch

One of the key motifs of Ardern’s speech was her repeated use of the phrase – “Now, what?” Cleverly, that looks like being Labour’s response to National’s ‘steady as it goes’ warning against not putting the economic ‘gains’ at risk. More>>


Lyndon Hood: Social Welfare, Explained

Speaking as someone who has seen better times and nowadays mostly operates by being really annoying and humiliating to deal with, I have some fellow feeling with the current system, so I’ll take this chance to set a few things straight.. More>>
