NOTHING TRIVIAL - THE FINALE
SUNDAY 3RD AUGUST, 8.30PM
In a very special one-off event, the Nothing Trivial telefeature picks up where the dramatic season three finale ended.
We last saw the five friends at the Beagle for Brian and Emma’s wedding, and it seemed that Catherine and Mac might finally be reconciled. But when Catherine went to retrieve a letter for Mac, she was hit by a passing van.
With Catherine’s fate unknown, Mac’s faith is ultimately tested, and the consequences will change his life forever.
How long will Emma and Brian remain happily married? Has Michelle really found the man of her dreams? And the question on everyone's lips: will Catherine survive the tragic accident?
Heart-breaking, funny and romantic, the Nothing Trivial telefeature is the highly anticipated conclusion that will keep fans guessing till the end.
THE BERRY BOYS
SUNDAY 3RD AUGUST, 10.30PM
During World War One, Wellington photographer William Berry took photographs of soldiers before they were shipped away to war to fight for King and country.
Of the 103,000 New Zealand men that were sent to battle, only half returned safely. While some came home maimed and scarred, the others were lost to graves in foreign lands.
One hundred years later, a box containing glass-plate negatives was found in a Wellington attic; images of unidentified WWI Kiwi soldiers and their loved ones.
Now, with the help of their descendants, animatic illustration and contemporary music, the men and their stories of sacrifice, family tragedy and heroism are being remembered and retold. These are The Berry Boys.
NIGEL LATTA: THE SCHOOL REPORT - WHAT'S GOING ON?
TUESDAY 5TH AUGUST, 9.30PM
If there’s one thing that gets people wound up, it’s education.
No-one, least of all parents, seems to understand NCEA, National Standards or decile ratings. Nor does anybody understand what our kids are actually learning at school.
Are Kiwi kids falling behind in reading, writing and arithmetic? And what is the difference between NCEA and National Standards?
In this week’s episode, Nigel Latta: The School Report – What’s Going On? Nigel takes himself back to school to find out.
It’s been a long time since he was last in the classroom as a student, and he spends time at both a decile one primary school and a modern high school, where he discovers that learning is nothing like it used to be.
WEDNESDAY 6TH AUGUST, 9.30PM
Drama is high on this week's Nashville!
Deacon hates birthday parties, so naturally Juliette plans a surprise party for him. Rayna tells Teddy their daughter knows about Peggy, and Rayna will not cover for him like she did with the press. Despite filing in another county, the divorce is all over the tabloids and the paparazzi are all over Rayna and her girls.
A crisis manager tells Rayna not to be seen in public with any man but her dad, but Rayna defiantly has Watty take her to Deacon's party. Rayna wrote a special song and Juliette says cattily that she's going to sing for Deacon, only she has to leave when her mother gets drunk.
THURSDAY 7TH AUGUST, 8.30PM
Things are looking up for Anna in tonight’s season finale, but for just how long will they stay that way?
After successfully wheeling and dealing her way through her first buy and sell, Anna is for once ahead and ready for more. Going against Leon’s advice, she brazenly purchases two more apartments from the slippery Cameron Glover (Peter Elliot).
Anna soon realises she may have made the wrong decision, but is it too late? Can she get herself out of hot water this time?
Like the frog in the well, she moves two jumps forward, and then slips back. She’s still in debt, her ex-husband has definitely moved on, and there’s a homeless man living on her front lawn.
You win some, you lose some. And then you try again…
