About

NHNZ is an international production company that sees the world a little differently. Based in Dunedin, on New Zealand’s south east corner, we collaborate with some of the best filmmakers on the planet to make factual TV for the biggest global broadcasters.

Whether the focus is on people, nature, adventure, history, science or all of the above, we try to give it a unique perspective. Perhaps that’s why much of our work is considered ground-breaking by our audiences, collaborators, partners, and a fair few awards juries. There’s a lot to be said for being based on the edge of the planet.

Originally a small natural history unit within TVNZ, we've seamlessly expanded over 40-plus years. Today, we’re an international production house with a reputation for innovation in storytelling, technology, and business integrity.
