The serious weather conditions in June have damaged two of our satellite dishes which means we cannot bring you some of your favourite shows. Currently affected are certain programmes from DW and the French Journal, which will be replaced by similar shows. Please check your EPG for updates. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Face TV, working with two of this country's most well-known book people, wants to respond to audience demand; and produce & screen a weekly TV show. Called simply THE BOOK SHOW, it will be written and presented by Graham Beattie and Carole Beu.
Graham Beattie has the most widely read book blog in NZ and beyond; and Carole Beu runs the highly successful Women's Bookshop in Ponsonby - and also beyond!
Both of them are chatty and charming and amazingly informed about the written word - whether it's in print or on your Kindle or Kobo.
Each week the programme will feature author interviews, reviews and great reads from both NZ contributors and visiting international book people.
THE BOOK SHOW will be screened weekly on Face TV - prime time with a daytime repeat; as well as being made available online.
Because Face TV is a non-profit television service we are able to produce a 12 part series for $6,000 and we're looking for donations to fund this.
