  • Neighbourhood - Newtown (First Episode)

    Source: NZ On Screen

    Resource type: Documentary ; Television

    "In each episode of this TVNZ show, a well-known Kiwi takes the pulse of a neighbourhood they are connected to. In this debut episode, musician King Kapisi (aka Bill Urale) guides viewers around Newtown, the cosmopolitan Wellington neighbourhood where he was born. He revisits his childhood, meets a Greek easter egg maker, a muslim ritual cleanser, African music advocate Sam 'Mr Newtown' Manzana, and a Mexican making skateboard art. The NZ Herald’s Paul Casserly called the show "beautifully shot, feel-good TV, reminiscent of the superb Living Room series."" (NZ On Screen summary)

  • View on NZ On Screen Theme from Once Were Warriors

    Source: NZ On Screen

    Resource type: Rock ; Music Video

    "Tama Renata’s volcanic theme for Once Were Warriors embedded itself in the New Zealand psyche as much as the line “cook me some eggs”, or the ominous sounds of the pūrerehua. In this promo clip, the Herbs guitarist's chops take centre stage as he shreds on a custom stratocaster cast in traditional wood whakairo (carving), his playing interspersed with iconic scenes from the film."
