Producer Michael Devine busy with a new series for the small fry, titled The We Three Show. Auditions sifted out the trio of comperes from scores of applicants. Oddly enough, all three were born in England. They are Simon Bates, who is lined up for the lighter side of the shows; Rhys Jones, the leading roles; and Carol Hill, who has had a tiny bit of previous TV experience on the Dunedin Music Hall series. . . . . Scripts for the series are to be written by a consistent NZBC, contract contributor, Al Flett. (TV Weekly March 13, 1967)

Other sources suggest this was a weekly music show. Some references are made to it being a contest, but some bands like the The Clevedonaires had a residency on it so who knows...
