News Review was produced in Christchurch and ran for several years before, in 1987, signing Deaf presenters joined the programme. Susan Thomas and Ava Agnew appeared on alternate Sundays. They worked hard to develop new signs for words or to translate new concepts into New Zealand Sign Language. The programme was a popular way for the Deaf community to access mainstream news, even if it was often a week old!

NB. SignDNA is searching for more copies of News Review; we only have a limited number of videos. If you have any recording, please let us know.
