From Te Ahi Kaa, 5:05 pm on 20 May 2012

In Te Ahi Kaa, Black Inc Media produces two TV shows, both showing in prime time slots. Atamira showcases Maori Theatre on Maori Television, while on TV 3, The GC follows a handful of Maori who are living large on the Gold Coast, Australia. In its debut week, critics took to social and online media and heavily criticised The GC, Maraea Rakuraku talks to producer Bailey Mackey who answers some of the negative publicity and explains why the formats of both shows are relevant. Justine Murray checks out Who Dat Sheila, the one woman comedy show of Parekotoku Moore. In an archival recording from 1994, Henare Te Ua is with Arnold Manaaki Wilson (1928 - 2012)
