TVNZ Proves BBC Model Can Be Boring – Even when No One’s Watching.
The BBC-esque model is in full-swing over on the Platform of Death (Freeview).
Never more so than on TVNZ’s New News Missive ‘TVNZ7′.
The BBC’s objectives to Inform, Educate & Entertain are destined to govern the Channel.
So, with former Shorty St non-english speaking Actors like this in place of seasoned journalists, and Programmes like ‘Alien Investigation’, or (for those with a strong stomach) ‘Afternoon Breakfast with Paul Henry’ one wonders, how can it fail?
Indeed, during prime time 3 of the 4 Freeview exclusive channels present Maori-only content.
Given less than 4% of the population speak Maori and only 100,000 Freeview boxes exist, it’d be conservative to assume a turnout of roughly, nobody per channel.
Regardless, Informing? No.
Educating? Well probably not.
Entertaining? What are you kidding me – I could watch this for hours.
There’s just something I have to do first
- Everything else in my life.
