Tuesdays at 7pm on Triangle & Wednesdays at 7:30pm on Stratos

Pacific Viewpoint addresses the issues that challenge Pacific peoples in all areas of life. Produced by Pasifika Broadcasting and hosted by Setita Millar from T NEWS, Pacific Viewpoint asks the hard questions most are afraid to ask. With a panel of experts and representatives from the pacific communities, Pacific Viewpoint also includes a live audience who are invited to engage in the show and ask about the issues affecting them.

For the first time in NZ, a dedicated Pacific talk show: Pacific Viewpoint will address the issues that challenge pacific peoples in all areas of life. Produced by Pasifika Broadcasting and hosted by Setita Millar from T NEWS, Pacific Viewpoint will ask the hard questions most are afraid to ask.
“Challenging cultural perception is often difficult,” says producer Gordon Clark “When we started T NEWS we came under a bit of criticism, some pacific peoples found it too confronting and insensitive to the likes of those in high ranking positions in the pacific community, especially when we asked them questions ‘commoners’ wouldn’t usually dare to ask. However, when they saw the results and realised that it is the media’s role to hold all accountable irrespective of rank, well, let’s say we don’t get many complaints anymore, in fact most people respect the boldness it takes to do so”
With a panel of experts and representatives from the pacific communities,  Pacific Viewpoint will also include a live audience who will be invited to engage in the show and ask the questions they want to ask.
“It’s going to be another challenge, and we’ve got a lot of often controversial topics to cover, but I’m sure it will in the end shed light on many issues still in the dark” says Gordon.
