A scoop from Auckland

It’s still Friday for many of you, but here in Auckland it’s Saturday, and the “Weekend Review” section of the New Zealand Herald has run a story about our visit to the university.  It’s by Peter Calder, who has reviewed films for the Herald since 1984.  We had a pleasant chat with him in preparation for the article.  With all his film experience, Peter is one of those rare reporters who puts the quotations in their proper context and gets his facts right.  You can read the article, “Figuring out the Frodo Franchise,” and its sidebar, “Technical tricks of the trade,” in the Herald‘s online version [1].
