Quotes

NZ On Air Chief Executive, Jane Wrightson says, "multi-night formats are currently drawing strong audiences. prime time drama is one of our key goals, and this is a strong project with a skilled production team."
"in an environment where it is cheaper to buy overseas content, our role is to preserve a space on local screens for local stories. the multi-night approach is cost-effective on a per hour basis, and more frequent installments should result in higher audience engagement" says Ms Wrightson
"catering for special interest audiences is a core part of our remit under the broadcasting act. in the old days it was on television and radio. today, while we continue to fund many popular special interest programmes for television and a wide range on access radio, we are also seeing great results with online content for niche audiences. we will continue to explore and innovate in this area" says NZ On Air Chief Executive Jane Wrightson
"content for children is integral to the principles of public broadcasting. increasingly we are looking at ways to engage children across a range of platforms, recognising that they have access to a range of media devices" says NZ On Air Chief Executive Jane Wrightson
