About The Show

The series celebrates the struggles and enterprise of our predecessors who built New Zealand from the ground up, telling their stories through archive stills and footage, personal accounts as well as commentary from experts and historians. For series two we shift the focus to industry, looking at Construction, Aviation, Forestry and Mining.

Making New Zealand is made with the support of NZ On Air's Platinum Fund
