Rumours of its death were greatly exaggerated. The Almighty Johnsons have risen again and Sean Donnelly (who, I’m morally obliged to tell you, has just released yet another stunning album called Elastic Wasteland – which is an absolutely essential addition to any music lover’s collection!) and I will be returning as the composers for the show. We get underway in a couple of weeks’ time and the season will go to air in NZ later in the year. The first and second series have also been screening in England to rave reviews.
