Q and A Paul Holmes returns

Q+A, 9-10am Sundays on TV ONE.

Thanks to the support from NZ ON Air.

Q+A is on Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/NZQandA#!/NZQandA and on Twitter, http://twitter.com/#!/NZQandA


On Q+A this Sunday, Paul Holmes returns as host, making his first television appearance in four months.

Former Labour cabinet minister John Tamihere is making noises about a return to parliament after what would be nine years on the outer. What are his plans and ambitions? Who’s in his sights? And what change might he want to bring? He’s live with Paul.

Then Greens co-leader Russel Norman has been stealing the headlines this week with his police complaint about Kim Dotcom. What does he want from the case? And as he campaigns against the high dollar and struggling economy, what plans does he have to spark growth? And what damage could they do to business? Dr Norman is live with Shane Taurima.

Then, Sean Gourley is a Kiwi boy made very, very good. The former champion athlete is now a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor to the White House and an expert on the maths of war. This weekend he gives a TED talk in Auckland and then joins Paul on Q+A.

Finally, Q+A has an exclusive interview with Hollywood director and new New Zealand resident James Cameron, the creator of some of the world’s biggest films, such as Titanic and Avatar. Cameron hosted John Key and a bunch of studio bosses at a dinner this week. Hear what was really said and what Hollywood thinks of Kim Dotcom.

Dr Jon Johansson of Victoria University returns to the panel for the first time in 2012, joined by Auckland Chamber of Commerce boss Michael Barnett and political commentator Josie Pagani.
