The Herald reports:
The two broadcasters take turns filming and screening the awards ceremony.
This year, it was TVNZ’s turn, but the state broadcaster pulled out, so TV3 stepped in.
However, it did not screen the whole show, instead showing a shortened “highlights” version on Sunday night with many of its rival’s winners edited out.
That prompted the state broadcaster to ask for a copy of the unscreened coverage.
But TV3 has rejected the request, saying the film is its to keep.
Someone at TV3 should reconsider. This just makes them look defensive and petty.
