100 New Zealand Pop Culture Stories free pdf We all know about jandals, jaffas and hokey pokey ice cream, but how many of us also remember the underarm bowling incident, the Topp Twins, Telethon and Thingee's eye popping out on TV? This is Kiwiana and pop culture for the younger generation, those who grew up with at least one channel of TV (and then two! And then in colour!). Drawing on the popular C4 TV series (the channel's highest-ever rating programme) this amusing and entertaining look at what makes Kiwis Kiwis counts down our top 100 pop culture moments, from the fields of sport, music, entertainment and the generally wild and wacky. Illustrated with classic photos, this is a stocking stuffer for Generation X, the Star Wars generation, today's 20-and 30-somethings who remember being a kid in the 70s and 80s. The book uses C4's disctinctive Rocked the Nation branding and ubiquitous funnyman Rhys Darby, who fronted the series, has written the introduction.
