"Powered by expert knowledge and brilliant research, the authors of this book cast new light on filmmaking and television production in New Zealand. Tracing the two industries side-by-side over a long stretch of history produces a number of revealing comparisons and contrasts. There is much debate about the future of television and film in New Zealand, and this book is very timely in providing a thoughtful, in-depth background to the issues. As an innovative study of media institutions, political forces, and cultural trends, this will be valuable reading not only in New Zealand but in all countries that are striving in today's competitive environment to maintain healthy film and television industries."--Roger Horrocks, University of Auckland--Roger Horrocks, University of Auckland
