Destiny TV dumped for huhu grub show

Mon 13 Dec 2004 In: New Zealand Daily News

Brian Tamaki's television church has had its cathode ray tube zapped - Destiny Television has been dumped by TVNZ in favour of an animated series for kids about the adventures of a pair of huhu grubs. A spokeswoman for the Destiny Church says they were told the programme did not fit TVNZ's charter, and Tamaki claimed it was because of the Enough is Enough march. However, a spokeswoman for TVNZ said it was because the network wished to provide more children's programming. Destiny Television has in the past been a vehicle for extended homophobic rants from Tamaki, including a now-infamous six part series entitled Homosexuality, Religion
