Mum is sad tonight. One of her favourite shows on New Zealand TV is Campbell Live a current affairs news programme on channel 3 that has played for 17 years and tonight they have announced that it is to come to an end. It has been good at showing good average kiwi stories about real people, and done with a great sense of humour and honesty. They have been the champion of the underdog and chased good causes, including putting food in schools for hungry kids and fighting for those who are still suffering in Christchurch after the earthquakes of a few years ago.
One of mums most fave stories was the one where they showed these fabulous dogs from the SPCA. It was part of their campaign to teach people that shelter dogs were smart. A NZ dog trainer took 3 shelter dogs and trained them all to drive a mini car. Awesome.
Such a shame to lose a quality programme with a great team.
