By Cinema, meta and Video

After a few weeks of development, testing, angst and aggro, I can finally announce the new project I’ve been cooking up at Radio New Zealand. Here’s a short trailer video explaining what it’s all about.

 

As an added bonus, if you can name all the films and TV shows featured in the above clip, email the list to widescreen@radionz.co.nz and go into the draw to win a DVD prize pack featuring half a dozen of those included.

You can also contact us with suggestions and comments at the same address, or you can give us 140 character feedback at @WidescreenRNZ on Twitter.

Here’s the page at the RNZ site.

Rancho Notorious is included in the RNZ deal but still available here (of course). I’ll be posting all my other Widescreen content here too because, why not?
