  • Kiwi kids need to see themselves on screen. Their World, their culture, their accent and language. They need to see that with high production values. There’s no competing with the glossy Disney shows or slick Power Rangers etc if our local content looks cheap and shabby. Kids can tell if something looks bad on screen. They’ll devalue themselves and kiwi shows if we’re constantly presenting them with budget no frills projects. Let’s get serious about providing them with things they can be proud of and aspire to.

    I like my own kids to watch good quality storytelling and production. I like them to watch things that lift them rather than underestimating them with lowest common denominator fodder. I’m selective about what they watch and I watch with them and discuss what they’re seeing. I do not let them watch things with hypersexualisation of children and I’m all about meaningful content and great stories and characters than material that is dross and soap operas for kids. I want them to be inspired not insipid.

    They only have one childhood.
