Want to have your say about broadcasting standards in New Zealand?

Posted Monday 20 Jul 2015

The Broadcasting Standards Authority is inviting public submissions on its new draft codes of broadcasting practice. The three codes, Radio, Free-to-Air Television and Pay Television, apply to all radio and television broadcasters. They contain standards, which are the basic rules broadcasters must follow, and commentary and guidelines, which help explain how the standards work.

Submissions can be made online on their website: http://bsa.govt.nz/code-review.
Public consultation has opened and closes on Monday 31 August 2015.

For any questions on the consultation process or about the BSA in general, please email info@bsa.govt.nz or call 0800 366 996.

Now read on.... Wendy Shields is a book editor from New York facing a marriage crisis. Darwan Singh Tur is a driving instructor from India with an abiding respect for tradition. When Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she hits a unique roadblock - she never learned to drive. She hires Darwan, a driving instructor and part-time cabdriver, to teach her. They form an unlikely bond that inspires each to embrace the laughter, freedom, and strength that comes with starting anew. The film premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and was voted first-runner up for the People's Choice Award.
