    So IOW flying teams to New Zealand for a glorified tourism campaign. Doing their bit for their carbon footprint then. Perhaps they haven’t noticed whats been happening recently with the enviromental demonstrations around the world.

    All that cost just to play Elvis, Phil Collins and Cilla ad infinitum.

    If they were community station, they could be in breach of their licence for not broadcasting local content from inside their transmission area.
