New Zealand is often seen as a relatively safe country but as this selection of our most notable crimes shows, we have had our fair share of homicides, violent acts and other criminal behaviour. The timeline of over 70 events can also be viewed as a map.
New Zealanders can now view music videos over the internet or on music channels C4 and Juice TV. But after TV was introduced in 1960 several generations of New Zealanders kept up with the music scene through dedicated music shows on mainstream TV. Popular shows included C’mon in the 60s, Happen Inn in the 70s, Ready to roll, Radio with pictures and Shazam in the 80s, and RTR in the 90s.There were many more short-lived shows.
