I was just flicking through some channels, and on ABC2, I run into a show called "The Mighty Uke". Got me completely by surprise. A TV show about ukes on TV (I see some familiar faces in it!!)? What's happening? LOL

Anyone else happen to have seen this show?

ABC2 was playing the documentary 'The Mighty Uke' again. They actually screened it for the first time on ABC1 about 2 or 3 months ago on a Sunday afternoon. I remember being totally spun out because it hadn't been released on DVD for that long when the first TV screening went to air. I was at work and one of the registered nurses saw a bit of it (eveidently, he wasn't working too hard that day) and asked me about it. I've since ordered him his own copy of the film and sold him a flea!!!!!! Gotcha!!!! :)

I don't think MightyUke has been played here in NZ, but we had a homegrown doco hosted by Gemma from WIUO:
