Educators - TV sitcom without a script

The first series of improv comedy series Educators on TVNZ on Demand was a smash hit for its creators Jonny Brugh, Jackie Van Beek and director Jesse Griffin. So it's hardly surprising the team got a second series, which has just dropped this week. Jonny Brugh plays Principal Jarred Needham - well-meaning, chaotic, but with his heart in the right place. The opposite of the character of Deacon, his suave vampire in What we do in the shadows, in other words. Lynn Freeman asks Jonny how do you totally improvise a TV sitcom, what limits do you set yourself and your collaborators? And why did they choose a school setting for the series?. The second series of Educators is currently playing on TVNZ On Demand.

Bryan Walpert's Beethoven-inspired novella

Beethoven's "Sonata Number 30 in E Major" weaves its way through a novella that's won a Trans-Tasman literary award for its writer, Professor Bryan Walpert from Massey University. Bryan, who's also a poet, put the manuscript for Late Sonata on hold for four years while he worked on an academic text about poetry and mindfulness. But he completed the 40,000 word manuscript last year, and became just the third Kiwi to win the Australian publisher Brio Books' Viva La Novella award. Late Sonata tells the story of a husband and wife separated by Alzheimers, and by a pervasive secret that involves their dead son Michael. Lynn Freeman asks Bryan Walpert about the on-line course that started a literary journey. Late Sonata is published by Brio Books.

The missing films of early NZ director Robert Steele

A Mild Case of Murder, The Wife Who Knew and Happy Honeymoon - A Near Tragedy - three titles of, we're told, early New Zealand films by enthusiastic amateur director Robert Steele are at the centre of a real life mystery. Nga Taonga Sound & Vision is putting out a nationwide appeal in the hope of tracking down the missing films, or at least finding out more about them. All this comes from a donation of photos from Geoff Bertram in February this year including promotional shots of several film productions that none of their staff had ever heard of. What is known is that Robert Steele ran a photographic studio, was a keen member of repertory theatre and made several commercials and industrial short films on both sides of the Tasman. He also - in 1931 - made a film called Shattered, described as "the first Auckland-produced photo-play with sound". Lynn Freeman talks to Geoff Bertram about Steele - was he a real-life version of Forgotten Silver's Colin McKenzie?
