The Celluloid Circus

The Celluloid Circus cover   They say to never judge a book by its cover.

In addition to filling for Graeme Tuckett on Nine to Noon whenever he gets a better offer, I’ve been reviewing some books. Last Friday I had the great pleasure of talking to Lynn Freeman about the wonderful history of New Zealand cinema exhibition, “The Celluloid Circus” by Wayne Brittenden.

The RNZ downloads tend to disappear after a week so I’ve taken the liberty of archiving it here. Courtesy of Radio New Zealand:

Celluloid Circus Review — Nine to Noon 14 Nov 2008

It really is a lovely book and I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in New Zealand social history (or sitting in rows in the dark).

    Hi,

    Audio from Nine To Noon is never deleted — we have everything back to the start of the year, and it is all fully searchable. I’d appreciate it if you could link to file on our server so we can continue to track its popularity.

    Thanks!

    Ooh, sorry. I didn’t know that. I’m sure they used to disappear but I’m happy to de-link and re-link to RNZ. Thanks for letting me know.
