Vox Victoria vanishing ?

The University radio programme is threatened with extinction.

NZBC producer. Mr David Greet, is finding it difficult.to fill the allotted time with suitable material.

Greet said that students with things to say seemed hesitant in saying them into a microphone.

"We are always prepared to mould our presentation to suit the personality concerned, so that would-be reviewers, critics, or entertainers have the best opportunity to do these things," he said.

The radio programme was started by former PRO Rhys Harrison who talked the NZBC into accepting it for broadcast.

Since it began six months ago it has occupied the 9.15-9.45 pm spot on 2ZB's Monday night programme.

The programme tries to present news and reviews as well as reports and items of interest. But Mr Greet wants a greater breadth of coverage and depth of presentation.

As acceptable items he mentioned, poetry, music, humour and any other original work.

Mr Greet said regular contributors include Tony Lenart with his drama reviews and reports, and Roger Hall who presents general items and does interviews.

"But the potential of such a programme is not being fully realised."

The programme provides an opportunity for anyone with designs on a career in news and entertainment media to advance their knowledge and to obtain some practice in the field.

It also gives anyone who is prepared to accept a wider audience a chance for his views to be more widely disseminated—Like open day. the University radio programme can help others see us as we see ourselves.
