Media Take aims to enlighten the audience about the politics of decision making in the media, and the motivations which can determine why some important issues are ignored or only given a small amount of coverage. Made with the support of NZ On Air.
Russell and Toi look at Māori in the media from film and television to theatre. Dave Gibson and Tearepa Kahi give their opinions on Māori filmmaking. A recent report from NZ On Air shows women and non-Pākehā are under-represented in NZ Television production. Libby Hakaraia and Victor Rodger discuss this issue. Regan Taylor joins us to talk about the freedom of expression to tell stories on the stage from a Māori view.
