Television news in New Zealand started in 1960 with the introduction of television. These bulletins were broadcast from the main centres (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin) operating completely independently of each other due to technical constraints. The Wahine Disaster (Wahine disaster) in April 1968 highlighted the need for a nationwide new network, as footage from Wellington could not be shown in other centres around the country within a short space of time. Until 1990, four regional news programmes were broadcast – one in each of the four main regions: ''Top Half'' (Auckland and the upper North Island), ''Today Tonight'' (Wellington and the lower North Island and originally the upper South Island), ''The Mainland Touch'' (Christchurch, Canterbury (Canterbury (New Zealand)) and later the upper South Island) and ''The South Tonight'' (Otago and Southland (Southland Region)). These programmes ran for 20 minutes during the main news programme at 6.30pm, between the sports and weather news, but were later moved to before the main broadcast to make way for the current affairs programme, ''Holmes'', which was first broadcast on 11 April 1989. It carried the famous tagline ''"Those were our people today, that's Holmes tonight"''. ''Holmes'' screened at 6.30pm weekdays, so the ''Network News'' was moved back to its current time of 6:00pm. '''Foodstuffs''' is a group of three New Zealand grocery and liquor retailers' cooperatives based in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch which collectively control an estimated 57% of the New Zealand grocery market. The group owns retail franchises like 4 Square, New World and Pak'n'Save, in-store private labels (store brand) Pam's and Budget, the Bell Tea and Coffee Company and a ten percent stake in The Warehouse.
