Ken Mair and supporters interrupted the six o'clock TV One news in 1995 in protest at the channel's lack of support for Māori-language broadcasting. The programme Te Karere was in te reo Māori, but had a short broadcast slot and was suspended if TV One had other priorities. Mair and the other protesters sought equal time for Te Karere broadcasts. In 2013 both Te Karere and the Māori Television news, Te Kāea, ran for around half an hour and were completely in te reo Māori.
