    Thanks for that link Lew, I just learned a Fox news anchor believes that Jesus was white.

  • Rob Stowell,

    Great to hear :) (and with a smidgen of fairy-dust, MTV'll be a great home for the show)

    Tamara, follow this link...


    Apparently Santa just absolutely has to be white. Aisha Harris is brilliant in her response.

    Congratulations Russell.

    So I guess we do have a public service broadcaster after all! Good work to Maori Television.

  • Carol Stewart,

    Congratulations RB. This is a lovely Christmas present to your readers here.

    On a related note, I was extremely proud of my 14 year old lad when he fluently delivered a mihi to open his school's prize-giving last week. So cool.

    If you get JT, you get Willie too. It's a double act comedy routine they do.

  • Myles Thomas,

    Excellent news. Does this reflect MTS extending their brief to non-Maori subjects? That'd be good news for Pakeha and Maori audiences but might create tension with their funders who focus on strengthening the reo.

    Anyway, congratulations to the Media Matters team and MTS, truly a fantastic TV channel.

  • Tim Michie,

    Very happy for everyone including you Russell (and me as audience).

    @myles They already do. Looking at Maori TV, most cultures are interested in a large range of subjects anyway. The screening of various countries films especially documentaries free to air would currently be second to none.

  • tony j ricketts,

    wonderful - I don't need Christmas now, it makes my three stars! (Seeing Iris Dement and Donna Dean for the first time are the others) Do I get a change of government next year as well?

    I'm guessing Media Brown

    Welcome back
    and an election year too!!

    Once more unto the breach,

    summon up the blood.
