Tonight, Friday, December 18th at 7pm on 3, sees Campbell Live’s last programme for 2009, and their now famous Christmas Special is particularly special this year.
In previous years, Campbell Live has brought viewers Christmas programmes featuring the Outrageous Fortune cast, a Split Enz reunion, and a barbeque with Fat Freddy’s Drop. But this year, it really is about the spirit of Christmas.
John Campbell and Mihingarangi Forbes, take one of New Zealand’s most loved Samoans, Oscar Kightley, to Lalomanu beach: the heart of the area destroyed by the tsunami in September. They then throw a beach party for the children who have lost so much in the past 12 weeks. Two-handed kids attend, the local choir sings, presents are handed out, and such is the happy atmosphere of the day that many of the children swim in the sea for the first time since the tsunami hit.
Make sure not to miss this uplifting programme, full of generosity, optimism and sunshine when Campbell Live finals its 2009 season on Friday, 18 December 2009 at 7pm on 3.[ad]
