Posted Wednesday 22 Jun 2016

Check out this Radio NZ interview from June 17 with Jane Wrightson, CEO NZ On Air and the winner of the Great Southern Film & Television Award for Outstanding Contribution to New Zealand Screen Industry at this year's WIFT awards.

Jane talks about what she is doing to address inequality in television and digital media where white males hold the plum jobs. Ethnicity is also out of balance with most television producers, directors and writers identifying as European despite the country's increasingly diverse population. NZ On Air is also changing the way it funds local music production.
