Current Affairs shows

Seven Sharp is not current affairs so much as infotainment. I don’t have a problem with that because I am not sure enough happens in NZ for a daily current affairs show. This leads to manufactured stories and the like.

But I do think current affairs shows are important, even if not daily. And Rachel Glucina points out how many we have now:

  • Sunday, TV One
  • 360, TV3
  • 60 Minutes, Prime
  • Native Affairs, Maori TV
  • 3rd Degree, TV3
  • The Vote, TV3
  • 20/20, TV2
  • Q+A, TV One
  • The Nation, TV3

When people say there is no current affairs in New Zealand, well far from it.
