This week Sunday returns to an hour timeslot, with a revealing investigation into the secret world of Gloriavale – an isolated religious community on the South Island’s west coast.

Two families who have recently fled Gloriavale speak candidly about their experience.

The outside world, they were told, was full of evil but what they found shocked them.

One young couple speak about how they were forced to get married, and express their concerns for the well-being of the remaining residents.

More and more families are defying the leaders of the Gloriavale community and choosing to leave.

‘Sunday’ shortens to 30min for new TV One Sunday night line up

TV ONE has announced a new Sunday night programme line-up for September that showcases the best of New Zealand content.

Two of the network’s hottest new shows will run back to back during primetime, making Sunday a night New Zealanders will not want to miss.

The keenly-awaited new entertainment show New Zealand’s Got Talent will go to air at 7.30, followed by the second series of the hugely popular local drama Nothing Trivial.

New Zealand’s Got Talent is the largest entertainment production undertaken by TV ONE in a decade, while Nothing Trivial broke all records for the premiere of a New Zealand drama series last year.

For the duration of the “Talent” series, high profile current affairs show Sunday will follow immediately after ONE News in a concentrated half-hour format.

Head of News and Current Affairs, Ross Dagan, says staffing and resources for Sunday will be maintained at the same level, and priority will be given to New Zealand content. The programme will return to its long form when the” Talent” series has finished.

Head of TV ONE and TV2, Jeff Latch, says the primetime programme schedule has something for everyone, and it’s all local.

“News and Current Affairs is consolidated in the early part of the evening, family entertainment follows, and the drama Nothing Trivial, which performed so well in its first series, is expected to draw excellent viewership,” he says. “We feel this is the kind of Sunday night people will go out of their way to watch.”

More and more girls and women are playing footy but can you imagine a day when a woman takes the field to play professional footy alongside the men?

Well here’s three women – one of them a part time model… and one of them an AFL star who – as a teenager – took Football Victoria to court for the right to play with the boys.

But not everyone agrees it’s a good idea for girls to mix it with the boys on the field.

Guest reporter Peter Fitzsimons meets three articulate and committed women hell-bent on playing the sport they love.

But his mind and love of life and sense of humour are completely unaffected.

For all of his 19 years, he’s lived with people staring at him….. but now he’s decided to make a bob out of it by becoming New Zealand’s first disabled model.
