This Week on '3rd Degree' - Wednesday 6 March

MEDIA RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tuesday 5 March, 2013


THIS WEEK ON ‘3rd DEGREE’ - WEDNESDAY 6 MARCH, 8.30PM ON TV3

TV3’s new weekly current affairs programme 3rd Degree premieres tomorrow (Wednesday 6 March) with two controversial stories.

Hosted by Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner, 3rd Degree kicks off with a major story from 2012 Journalist of the Year, Melanie Reid followed by an exclusive look into the life of Anna Guy, sister of murder victim Scott Guy.

Melanie Reid investigates a furore in Taranaki; a stoush between the region’s “most hated man” on one side, and the mayor, the police, and just about everyone else in the province on the other.

Daniel Clout is a car clamper – he clamps cars for several private car parks in New Plymouth. It is not a job that endears him to the local community, but the one thing he has going for him is the fact that he has video-recorded everything – all his run-ins with car parkers and the police. Melanie Reid will show you why he deserves his story told.

Also in the first episode of 3rd Degree, a special report on Anna Guy - her own story in her own words. Anna was thrust into the spotlight, when her husband was charged, and subsequently acquitted of the murder of Anna’s brother. Now Anna has invited 3rd Degree cameras to follow her, as she leaves the town she grew up in and sets up home with her four children in Auckland. Anna talks candidly about putting tragedy – and her husband Ewen – behind her, and about her new love.

Anna is also in the studio to answer some hard questions. Each week the programme includes an interview segment, in which a guest is given the ‘3rd Degree’ by Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner. This week Anna Guy is in the hot seat: does she think her brother Scott was killed by her husband?

3rd Degree screens Wednesdays at 8.30pm on TV3. In upcoming weeks, the programme will feature stories from some of New Zealand’s top journalists, including Paula Penfold, Sarah Hall, Guyon Espiner, Melanie Reid, Phil Vine, Duncan Garner and Samantha Hayes.

3rd Degree – Wednesdays, 8.30pm on TV3
