The Editor,
Te Ao Hou.

Recently in a newspaper I read a letter from a Maori asking why there are so very few Maori programmes on television. Frankly, I wondered the same. I am a European and am trying to learn the Maori language, and for this reason listen to every possible Maori session on the radio. But why are there so few of them?

Surely more could be done on radio and television to help the many students of Maori language and culture.
