NHNZ, at the heart of every story.

From small beginnings as TVNZ’s natural history unit, NHNZ has seamlessly expanded into a global production house with a reputation for innovation in storytelling, technology, and business integrity.

NHNZ continues to build on its strong foundations with a diverse and creative slate, working with talented producers around the world and multiple broadcast partners on classic natural history through to obs doc series and dramatic first-person narratives. Working mainly with the US and Asian markets, we have also established ourselves as a leader in international co-productions – helping to bring partners together from all over the globe.

As a one-stop shop, NHNZ has 80 highly-skilled filmmakers, craftspeople and researchers plus a dedicated group of technicians. With an in-house archive library, NHNZ Moving Images; a dedicated archive production unit; ZooMoo, the first children’s channel devoted entirely to the animal kingdom; gaming specialists – Runaway; and Outrun the Sun, our U.S.-based production division - NHNZ’s creative approach guarantees we’ll continue to push the boundaries of imagination across all content production.

Today, NHNZ is based in Dunedin, New Zealand with offices in Washington DC and Beijing. NHNZ is part of the RACAT stable of market-leading independent television production companies along with Beach House Pictures (Singapore) and Northern Pictures (Australia).
