Catch of the Week

New Zealand Listener - - THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT -

BANGIN’ BHANGRA: Al­though the fes­tiv­i­ties have been rolling out for weeks, the of­fi­cial date for this year’s Di­wali, the Hindu fes­ti­val of lights, is Wed­nes­day. And if you want to know more about the re­cent wild danc­ing on Queen St, and the mu­sic that an­i­mated it, you could do no bet­ter than watch the fas­ci­nat­ing BBC doc­u­men­tary Pump Up the Bhangra on YouTube. It ex­plains how this high-en­ergy Bri­tish-In­dian pop mu­sic emerged as a way for lonely mi­grant work­ers to cheer them­selves up in the 1970s and went on to gen­er­ate global hits in the 21st cen­tury. tinyurl.com/NZLBhangra

BARR BARED: As ABC re­works Roseanne with­out Roseanne, as The Con­nors, you may be won­der­ing what be­came of Roseanne Barr her­self af­ter her fate­ful racist tweet. Vice News’ short, in­ti­mate re­port Roseanne, In­ter­rupted finds her home­bound and not in a great place. tinyurl.com/ NZLRoseanne

MEM­O­RIES: TVNZ has been rolling out the hits of yore on On­De­mand. All six sea­sons of Daw­son’s Creek went up re­cently, and The Nanny starts stream­ing from Thurs­day. Next thing you know, Bill Clin­ton will be pres­i­dent.
