Kim Dotcom on Q and A

Sunday 18 November, 2012

On Q+A this week, Kim Dotcom speaks to Paul Holmes. In his first sit-down interview for nine months, he speaks candidly about his family and the scandal that’s enveloped them. He defends himself against claims he’s an internet pirate and made millions from copyright infringements, tells us how that donation conversation with John Banks played out and says whether he believes John Key on the spying scandal.

Also on the programme, New Zealanders are moving to Australia in record numbers, but is it all it’s cracked up to be? Are Kiwis being discriminated against over there and being treated as second class citizens? Phil Goff argues that they are, and Australian government minister Peter Garrett responds in an exclusive interview with the former Midnight Oil frontman. We investigate the good and bad of crossing the ditch and talk live to Sir Ralph Norris about the prospects for both countries, whether it’s still a good move and how New Zealand can compete with its lucky neighbour.

Q+A, 9-10am Sundays on TV ONE and one hour later on TV ONE plus 1.

Thanks to the support from NZ ON Air.
