This weeks Sunday programme – TV1, 11 May, 7.30pm features;
How much more can the motorist take? Best part of two dollars for a litre now; what’s it going to be this time next year, and the year after that? Are all our lives about to change because of the price of petrol? Is it a case of simply getting used to it? SUNDAY investigates the price of petrol and who’s coining it.
Murphy And Son
The son of one of New Zealand’s pioneer movie directors is striking out on his own. Paul Murphy, son of Geoff Murphy (Goodbye Pork Pie), has made his first full-length feature, Second-Hand Wedding. There’s no sex, no violence, no swearing – a simple heart-tugging very Kiwi story about a mother with a penchant for garage sales.
She’s young, aggressive and gorgeous. Laleh, a.k.a. ‘Little Schumacher’, is an Iranian racing car driver. She is exploring new boundaries and opportunities in a land which does not encourage women; where women are second class citizens. She has become a poster girl for women seeking to better their lot. On the race track Laleh is tolerated by the men, but not accepted. This is the story of her struggle.
