1:31 Satire in New Zealand
New Zealand has a proud tradition of satire and parody, and people in power have always been popular targets. We all remember fondly the Golden Years of McPhail and Gadsby, Fred Dagg and the many Country Calendar spoofs. On Radio New Zealand National, our own satirical programme, Down The List, has proven to be very popular. But the law that allows satire and parody to do their work is a little fuzzy, if not nonexistent. And as we found out on Morning Report earlier this week, it can bite both ways.
