Mr Telly TV pro­gramme de­tails

Thank you, Prime, what a doc­u­men­tary. I watched through misty eyes – most of the time – Richie McCaw: Chas­ing Great (Satur­day, Septem­ber 1). He has al­ways been an idol of mine, not only for his ded­i­ca­tion as an All Black cap­tain and his lead­er­ship skills on the field, but be­cause I see him as a gen­uinely nice guy. I felt Richie bared his soul – telling his story in such an un­pre­ten­tious man­ner. To have reached the heights he did, aca­dem­i­cally and as an All Black, and yet stayed so grounded is a feat to be ap­plauded. The pho­tog­ra­phy, es­pe­cially in and around Can­ter­bury, was stun­ning. It cap­tured the essence of the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side. I en­joyed ev­ery minute of it. I now wait with an­tic­i­pa­tion for his and Gemma’s first born – Hockey or Rugby!
