  Bank's attack on Maori TV did not breach standards - New Zealand news on Stuff.co.nz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Maori Television made several complaints to the BSA after Banks said while hosting a show on Radio Pacific on July 25 that the "money-guzzling apartheid state-owned Maori Television channel" had been "slapped down hard" by the BSA.
Maori Television said Banks was incorrect on several points and calling the channel "racist" and "apartheid" denigrated Maori Television and Maori people in general.
The BSA found the comments were not denigratory to Maori in general, because Banks was referring to the channel directly, which was not a "section of the community".

Maori programming is better served by radio, where there are a number of stations run by Maori iwi (tribes) as well as regular broadcasts at peak times by Radio New Zealand on their National station.

As part of the resurgence of Maori culture that came to the fore in the late 20th century, the tradition-based arts of kapa haka (song and dance), carving and weaving are widely practiced, and the architecture of the marae maintains strong links to traditional forms.
Maori also value their connections to Polynesia, as attested by the increasing popularity of waka ama (outrigger canoe racing), which is now an international sport involving teams from all over the Pacific.
Use of the Maori language (Te Reo Maori) as a living, community language remained only in a few remote areas in the post-war years, but is currently undergoing a renaissance, thanks in part to Maori language immersion schools and a Maori Television channel.

Maori radio therefore developed with perhaps greater diversity, and accessibility than even the Global Plan had envisaged.
It was founded on the previous Te Reo Maori claim, which established the Maori language as a taonga for the purpose of Article Two of the Treaty of Waitangi.
The Crown's assumptions that Maori television would use UHF frequencies were well out-of-date by then: technology had moved on, and digital satellite transmission would prove to be a more effective option.

Now it intends to attack funding set aside for Maori language programming in order to produce programmes that Maori Television is already broadcasting.” Mr Mather said Maori Television had recently approached TVNZ to explore the potential for the two public broadcasters to work in a collaborative, rather than competitive, manner.
Maori Television had developed what he believed was a sound, logical and robust plan for the two to work together to reduce production and programming costs, resulting in a better and more responsible spend of taxpayer funds.
Maori Television was an independent broadcaster with a schedule and programming style that vastly differed to that of TVNZ, and would make its schedule decisions based on its programming strategy and reo Maori content needs.

The Māori Television Service is a state sector organisation in New Zealand that was established on May 7, 2003 under the Māori Television Service (Te Aratuku Whakāta Irirangi Māori) Act 2003 to replace the Te Reo Māori Television Trust (Te Awhiorangi).
Māori Television is available on the UHF band to approximately four-fifths of Māori speakers, and to all of New Zealand via SKY Television's satellite service.
Like the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the television service has, according to the State Services Commission, an unusual status in that it is 'a stand alone agency within the State sector that does not fall under any State sector category'.

The Complainant is required by statute to use the television medium to revitalise Maori language and culture, being the language and culture of New Zealand’s indigenous people.
The Complainant submits that “Maori Television Service” and “Maori Television” are common law trade marks in New Zealand, well known to members of the public and that the domain name is confusingly similar to the marks “Maori Televisions Service” and “Maori Television”.
While the creation of the Maori TV channel may not necessarily have generated the same level of publicity, it was certainly a matter of relatively widespread debate and coverage in New Zealand.
