Three Kiwi Classics on NZ on Screen

Posted Friday 30 May 2014

Wile away a wet afternoon or two by catching up with this selection of Kiwi classics, thanks to NZ on Screen...

Havoc and Newsboy's Sell-Out Tour - Gay Man's Rock

The infamous episode that had the Mayor of Gore thundering: "God help them if I ever see them again. If they come back they will be brandished with barbed wire and run out of town."

NZ Music Month Collection

Celebrate New Zealand Music Month with this comprehensive collection of music shows and documentaries, including the definitive Split Enz doco Spellbound, Flying Nun history Heavenly Pop Hits, and a classic on the legendary Nambassa Festival.

Dear John - BASF Commercial

Named Australasian Ad of the Decade in 1990, amongst a swag of other accolades, this tragicomic tale of a jilted soldier remains as popular now as when it was made over 30 years ago. The products it was designed to sell - cassette tapes - are, of course, long gone.
