Halcyon used to describe days as Munter goes back into mists of TV time

It's been a rollercoaster of televisual emotions recently after TVNZ delved into its archives to celebrate 50 years of Kiwi telly. And NZ On Screen has joined the nostalgic fray with a couple of new promos starring Outrageous Fortune's Tammy Davis that aim to showcase the array of Kiwi television, film and music videos available 'online'.

Through the marvels of modern technology (and the skills of Sticky Pictures), Davis, more affectionately known as Munter to most of the nation, has ventured back through the mists of time to put an afro on and present a modified version of the classic Kiwi show On The Mat, before tripping back to 1956 for a story about Opo the Gay Dolphin.

There are another four promos set to splice together old footage that will be released over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for them. And be sure to check out the cultural goldmine that is NZ On Screen.
