"Summer Blogging Journey Week Three Day Two"

                                                          Day 2:  "Peace Out (The 1960s)"

Activity 1:  "The Dawn Of Television"

In the 1960s there was a great deal of change in NZ. Technology was involving and the television was introduced for the first time into NZ homes in the 1960s. Popular programmes include Town & Around & C'mon.
Television remains popular to this day.

For this activity I am going to talk about my favourite television show. (what is it about,who are the main characters and what channel is it on.)

My favourite television show is the Ellen show.This show is an American television comedy talk show.The main character of this show is Ellen Degeneres(actress/comedian) and the channel that this television show appeared is on channel 1/6 at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.

Activity 2:  "Rock 'N' Roll"

Famous bands also started travelling across the world and in 1964, NZ hosted, arguably the most popular band of the time, "The Beatles". People were very excited to see "The Beatles", and the hype around the band was known as Beatles-Mania (similar to the modern-day Bieber-Fever)

I am going to read about their tour of NZ and then I will post 3 interesting facts about them (The Beatles).

-3 Interesting facts about "The Beatles"

-They were a very famous band

-So many fans of "The Beatles" hurt themselves because they wanted so badly to see the boys.

-On the twenty first of June,1964 that is were the "Beatles" first stop in NZ(Wellington).

Bonus activity:  "The Three Rs-Rugby, Racing And Running"

In the 1960s, sport in NZ was dominated by the three R's-rugby, racing and running. The national rugby team, the All Blacks, had a great decade, winning 30 of 40 games that they played.Many kiwis also spent their week-ends at the local racetrack and, in 1960, Peter Snell won a gold medal in the 800m race at the Olympic Games in Rome, Italy. He followed this up with two more gold medals in the 800m and 1500m at the 1964 Olympic Games.

On this blog, I'm going to read an information about Peter Sell (retrieved from the Encyclopedia Britannica website), and then I will create a poster of Peter Snell along with information about his interests and other sporting accomplishments.
