The thing I love about hanging with the folk at Prime is that while they are genuinely nice people, they really love television.  I mean, they really love television.  So much so that they’re quite comfortable acknowledging that they’re self confessed TV geeks.  Listening to the banter between the presenters at their 2010 Season Launch definitely cemented that.

Prime has experienced some pretty good growth this year, recently achieving its highest peak share.  One can only assume 2010 will see that peak moved higher with a fantastic lineup as well as the Winter Olympics.

So what’s on the cards for next year?  Check out the list below and let us know what you think:

TV ONE’s new local series Homegrown starring Te Radar takes a look at the history of some of New Zealand’s greatest natural resources.

From food and beverages, to fibre and fleece, from precious metals under the ground to the abundant seafood in local waters, it will unearth the stories of Aotearoa’s past, taking a look at the history of some of the places and people who created and made New Zealand’s products.

Te Radar kicks off the series with an in-depth look at the humble sheep, from their introduction to New Zealand to their impact on our economy and lifestyle.
