23rd Year of Uninterrupted Production

Praise Be begins its 23rd year of uninterrupted production on TV ONE, featuring 100 per cent New Zealand content from a wide range of interdenominational choirs, music groups and congregations singing a varied repertoire of hymns, songs, sacred and contemporary music.

Chris Nichol continues to host Praise Be, which will travel around the country recording new material throughout the year, updating its extensive music library. Each programme will be linked with interesting background information about the music, New Zealand churches and Christian life, as well as spiritual reflections and interviews.

During the first month the focus will be on Lenten and Easter hymns, but there are some major recordings in Tauranga already planned and Praise Be will be in Dunedin during the 125th anniversary celebrations of the Salvation Army in New Zealand. This will feature in a special programme in May.

Sunday 2 March, 9.00am on TV1
