STAR LET­TER

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY - May Day (Grey­mouth)

May I, along with many other very happy view­ers, ex­press our hap­pi­ness about the An­zac Day cov­er­age on M ori TV. Never has the tax­payer dol­lar been put to bet­ter use. The en­tire cov­er­age was clear, in­for­ma­tive, tech­ni­cally ex­cel­lent and in­spi­ra­tional. Un­for­tu­nately, the rest of our view­ing, ap­par­ently, now re­morse­lessly re­turns to – Satur­day: End­less re­peats of grind­ingly dull items; Sun­day: More re­peats; Mon­day: Even more of the same; Tues­day: Re­peat = re­cal­cu­late; Wed­nes­day: Re­peats and rigor mor­tis; Thurs­day: Re­peats. “The per­son who lets him­self be bored is more con­temptible than the bore” – Sam But­ler; Fri­day: Re­peats – re­it­er­ated. The re­sult of a diet of re­peats is a tech­ni­colour yawn. Please bring back orig­i­nal­ity.
