Tales from Te Papa is a series of mini-docos (between 2-5 minutes long) showcasing significant objects and taonga from the collections of Te Papa and other museums. I know Simon from his Saturday afternoon programme on Radio New Zealand, ‘This Way Up’ and he has also hosted the show ‘Why We Buy?’ for TVNZ.
Riria works here at Te Papa in our awesome Education team and has featured on the te reo programme ‘Korero Mai’. Using their inquisitive minds, they get to know some of the curators and collection managers at Te Papa and discover the fascinating and sometimes unexpected stories from Te Papa’s collections.
Tune into TVNZ6 at 8.25pm Tuesday 1 September to catch the premiere episode. The episodes will screen each night between 6pm and midnight so keep an eye out. If you miss any, they will be available on TVNZ6′s website and we will get them on here as soon as possible too.
