Story: Māori and television – whakaata

Marae, 2012

In this 2012 segment from the long-running TVNZ current-affairs show Marae, presenter Scotty Morrison talked with broadcaster Tini Molyneux and political commentator Willie Jackson about Māori and television. Molyneux had presented, reported for and directed Te karere, Marae and Waka huia, and had been Māori affairs reporter on ONE news. She and Jackson discuss the impact of Marae, the mainstreaming of Māori issues and why TV One had not filled the Māori affairs reporting position when she left.
