  • Hard News: Anzac Day II,

    The Sam Neill documentary was screened over here in Australia by the ABC and was excellent. Quite emotional for an expat Kiwi at the end when he was at the Waikouaiti War Memorial (a typical small town arch with a shockingly long list of names for such a small place) as I spent most of my holidays just south of there at Karitane and used to regular go to Waikouaiti to help with the shopping (and get a huge ice cream in the cone). Wall to wall Anzac in the media here but the ABC (as usual) were pretty good. My free to air viewing is almost completely restricted to ABC and SBS where (most of the time) you feel like you are being treated as an intelligent person. I suspect that if I still lived in NZ I would watch no TV as the commercial channels really are shit (as they are here).

  • Hard News: Where do you get yours? (Food…,

    I’m loving this foodie thread. Have been in South Australia for ten years after living in ChCh it's great that many familiar food outlets still exist in ChCh plus many more new ones. My in-laws swear by the St Martins/Opawa market (only 5 minutes from our old house – sigh!) and the Dunedin Farmers market has always been great when I’m down there visiting my folks.
    Anyone coming to Adelaide must spend time in the Central Market – the best food market in Oz (don’t listen to Melburnians!) and the Willunga Farmers market is worth a visit on sat morning between tasting McLaren Vale wines.
