Nights for Friday 16 September 2016
7:07 Sonic Tonic: Forgetting
Music with magic and mischief spun into an surreal sensation of mayhem and maybe magnificence.
8:12 Auckland Heritage Walking Tour Part 3
Music Segment Producer Jim Pitt has made a career of booking musical talent first on Saturday Night Live, and since 1993 with Conan O'Brien's successful Cable show. Jim talks with Trevor Reekie about the highs and lows and the logistics of keeping the audience and the network happy with the musicians he books. Trevor Reekie coaxed some great stories from Jim Pitt while he was in Auckland to speak at the Going Global 2016 Music Seminar.
9:07 Country Life
On Country life this week: Canopy Tours … zip lining through native bush is fun for the tourists and beneficial for the flora and fauna. Canopy Tours is into its fourth year. Staff numbers have gone from 4 to 35, and a large part of their work is pest control. Birds are returning to the area, the forest is flourishing and one of the guides says lasting memories for visitors are of the New Zealand bush, as much as about zip lining. Tens of thousands of dollars are being donated by international visitors to support the environmental work.
Also, showing off a 1929 Bentley. Mr Tripp has stored it in his shed for 50 years, but the woman who owned it before had a tow bar attached so she could take a trailer around the farm for feeding out.
Plus, Fonterra's new Lichfield Dairy Plant is ready for action. Carol Stiles takes a tour.
