Miramar near Wellington, New Zealand is quickly becoming one of the world's most acclaimed film-making infrastructures. So much so, the area has been dubbed Wellywood. Well plans to build a welcome sign at the airport has caused a stir with the trademark owners of the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles. Mayor of Wellington Kerry Prendergast spoke to Rhod.

Two glass phials said to have ghosts in them have sold for the considerable sum of two thousand New Zealand dollars on an online auction site in New Zealand. The phials were put on sale on the popular Trade Me website by Avie Woodbury, who claims that the ghosts were caught in her home on the south island by an exorcist and stored in holy water. But it dosen't end there. The people who bought the 'ghosts' asked Kiwis to vote in an online poll on what they wanted to do with them. Richard Culph is Marketing Director for Safer Smoke NZ - they were lucky winners of the auction and spoke to Rhod.
