Both Simon Dallow and Mike McRoberts stood outside the Christchurch Cathedral wearing hard hats and yellow vests to deliver the Christchurch Eartquake anniversary coverage which dominated tonight’s bulletins.
One News had a lot of “last years news”, recapping what actually happened 12 months ago in Christchurch. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it would be difficult to believe someone wouldn’t be aware of what had happened.
Jessica Rowe’s story about the families of the Asian students who died in the CTV building was particularly moving and definitely the best story from all the coverage.
