NFD Communicate: September 1992

  • The story of Ivan Curry is screened recently on television, telling the story of a Deaf man who spent two years in prison awaiting trial for a murder he did not commit.
  • Teletext aims to increase the number of subtitled programmes on NZ television by 25% – recently adding Shortland Street. The subtitling division was set up in Christchurch 1985 and moved to Auckland in 1991. Teletext’s noticeboard also acted as a noticeboard for the Deaf community.
