Tuning In

The chances of New Zealand being declared a republic in the near future are slim if the viewing statistics from last evenings Royal Wedding are to be believed.

51 per cent of men and 67 per cent of women watching TV last night tuned in to the royal wedding on free-to-air television according to a report in today's NZ Herald.

The topic on most people's minds this past 24 hours - NZ ringed in red.

There has also been considerable interest in New Zealand's only professional basketball team, the Breakers, winning the Australian competition.  This is a first for any NZ professional team; beating the Aussies in their own competition.

The Canadians, unlike their compatriots across the border, were more interested in the results of their election than the royal nuptials.

Meanwhile we are tuning into autumn which is something the Canadians would also appreciate.
