Maori Television Highlights Mon 3 to Sunday 9 Oct

DALVANIUS
Monday October 3 at 8.30 PM

On the anniversary of his passing, legendary Maori entertainer Maui Dalvanius Prime is commemorated on Maori Television with a portrait documentary of his life. The founder of the Patea Maori Club led the roopu to the top of the charts in 1984 when the kapa haka / pop hit Poi E took Aotearoa, and abroad, by storm. Dalvanuis – lovingly remembered on Maori Television this week.

TATAI HONO
Tuesday October 4 at 8.00 PM

It’s early on in Maori Television’s new discovery series, Tatai Hono, and this week traces an emotional pilgrimage for young Upper Hutt mum Toni Baird to her Northland roots. Toni’s journey to the Hokianga to meet her whanau and learn about her ancestors makes for moving television as the real drama and family secrets unfold. Then, we are introduced to Kerikeri WINZ officer Nick Jessop who is also on a personal journey to trace his heritage.

SISTERS PEARLS AND MISSION GIRLS
Tuesday October 4 at 8.30 PM

In 1907, nine nuns travelled from the green meadows of Ireland to the bone-dry desert on Australia’s Kimberley Coast. Their destination? Broome – a pearling boomtown, cultural melting pot and one of Australia’s wildest and most infamous outposts. This documentary captures their extraordinary experience in the dusty hell hole while explaining the complex and sometimes dark history of the region.

NZ MAORI VS COOK ISLANDS
Tokoroa LIVE: Saturday October 8 at 2PM

Maori Television begins its first coverage of the tri-series rugby league clash between NZ Maori vs Cook Islands. Broadcast live from Tokoroa with presenters Dale Husband, Ritchie Barnett and Te Arahi Maipi, Maori Television continues its coverage of the series from Gisborne (delayed) on Thursday October 13 at 2 PM and Hastings (live) on Sunday October 16 at 2 PM.

NGATI
Sunday October 9 at 9.00 PM

Maori Television commemorates the foundations of Maori film making with Barry Barclay’s stunning 1987 movie. This classic feature film was the first movie to be written and directed by a Maori and traces a young Australian medical graduate, played by Ross Girven, and his hikoi to his mother’s hometown on the East Coast. NGATI is a universal work that also stars a dynamic cast, including Connie Pewhairangi, Judy McIntosh, Wi Kuki Kaa and Tuta Ngarimu Tamati.
