Scrim tells the intriguing story of one of New Zealand's first broadcasting superstars, and of the trouble that can arise when media, politics and religion become improperly entangled. Colin Scrimgeour - Scrim - Uncle Scrim - first found his voice in the early years of the Great Depression as a Methodist lay preacher, and in 1934 established one of the world's first radio churches, The Fellowship of the Friendly Road. After the 1935 election, his close relationship with new prime minister Michael Joseph Savage saw him appointed director of New Zealand's first public commercial radio network.
