A Butchered Version of "War of the Worlds" that aired on TV1 for three Sundays

Matt from Henderson

Hi everyone, Matt here. Did anyone watch the "War of the Worlds" this Sunday just gone (20 October) and the other two Sundays (6,13).

I don't know what others think, I thought that having the 'War of the Worlds" for three Sundays did not cover the whole story line as far as I was concerned. If whoever had produced the "War of the Worlds" on TV1, they should at least looked the the "Jeff Wayne, War of the Worlds", music version and worked along that kind of story line and push the series or movie to a month and half long, still have on a Sunday but have it more action packed so to speak if that makes sense.

Here is a youtube link if anyone wants to watch the musical full concert version Jeff Wayne and his team did in the UK sometime back.

Celebrating 90 years

The Team from Auckland Museum

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?

In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.

The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.

We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.

Feed a family in need this Christmas

Christmas Box

Christmas is all about sharing time, gifts and good food with family and friends. Sadly, this isn’t always a reality for many Kiwis. Statistics show that one in five Kiwi children are living in households without access to enough (healthy) food.

You can make a difference. By donating a Christmas Box, for only $30, you will contribute to feeding a family of four to six people for up to a week!

“Without Christmas Box, we would not be having Christmas. We can now have Christmas dinner and enough food to last for a while. You have brought joy to our family and smiles on our kids faces.” – Christmas Box recipient.
