I’m planning on watching Sunday, Rage and the Olympics

I will be watching Sunday tonight on TV One at 7.30pm, as it has a report on the Beast of Blenheim, who, quite frankly, should remain behind bars by the sounds of things. Frightening. I will be very interested to see what the people who have had contact with him recently think of his behaviour.

I’ll also be recording Sunday Theatre: Rage tonight at 8.30pm on TV One, as I missed it the first time it played a few months ago. Continue reading »

I’m planning on watching Cake Walk: Wedding Cake Edition, Grand Designs and the Olympics

Because I love all things wedding-related, I will most likely be watching Cake Walk: Wedding Cake Edition on Food Television at 7.30pm tonight.

It features three wedding cake designers who race against the clock to complete one couple’s dream wedding cake. If only we could all have had that when we got married! It will be fun the see the final results.

I will be recording Grand Designs on TV3 tonight at 7.30pm. This week, Kevin follows Simon and Jill Bennett’s conversion of two timber-framed barns. Continue reading »

The arrival of a new investor has given the future of MediaWorks a considerable boost.

The US-based Oaktree Capital Management, which specialises in investing in distressed assets, has bought $125m of MediaWorks’ debt from BOS International and BNZ at a considerable discount.

“Now, with Oaktree having taken out some debt, it paves the way for that restructuring of MediaWorks debt to take place, so it is a positive development because it takes out two banks, who may have had different views on it, and gives the restructuring plan a greater chance of happening,” a source said. “So now, all the parties are there because they want to be in there.” Continue reading »
