Country Calendar. Stories from the television series which became a New Zealand institution. Edited by Fred Barnes .'In the beginning Gilbert Stringer set up Country Calendar. He was an autocratic and shrewd Director General who did his sums well for New Zealand Broadcasting. He followed a line of Directors General who had particular abilities in the arts, but it was his strong accounting skills this enabled broadcasting to give substantial support for the Symphony Orchestra, drama and other activities associated with the arts. Gilbert Stringer's wise husbanding of funds helped us when we started to pay the bills for introducing television to New Zealand. He wanted a rural programme on television and so he set the grinders to work putting it together. He kept a fatherly eye on it for ever after.' From the introduction by Fred Barnes.
