Making NZ


Channel 004

Making New Zealand – the popular history series covering New Zealand’s industry, enterprise and ingenuity – returns for a third series. For the early settlers and those who followed this wild and isolated country, Aotearoa was a world away from anything they knew. Yet somehow they laid the foundations for the nation we live in today. This series celebrates the vision, the skill, and the sheer determination that made our country. 
Each episode tells the amazing stories behind some of our most important industries – from farming, the backbone of the New Zealand economy for many generations, to the burgeoning tourist industry, once maligned by government and now our biggest foreign earner. Episodes like Broadcasting and Manufacturing discover how Kiwis looked to the rest of the world and improved, not simply imitated, the global trends.
