Gay TV a reality in the new year - 26-Nov-1995
Horizon Pacific TV and express newspaper announced this week plans for a half-hour programme which will have overseas and local gay news, current affairs, interviews, events and entertainment. They expect the programme to begin in the first week of February and run for 46 weeks. The programme will be broadcast through Horizon Pacific's regional stations in Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Executive Producer of Horizon Pacific, Chris Goldsmith, was reported in the NZ Herald as saying the show would provide a "more correct portrayal" of the gay community than images seen through "the likes of news footage of protests and parades".
