Pasifika media petition to TVNZ
Change the timeframe for outsourcing Polynesian television
. . .
National broadcaster TVNZ is "outsourcing" production for Maori and Pacific Islands programmes. Signatories here call for TVNZ to change outsourcing to March 2015. This will enable Pasifika communities to better prepare, plan and implement change.

TVNZ wants production of Maori and Pasifika programmes "outsourced" and has announced a very short timeframe for doing so.
Pacific media groups are calling on TVNZ to extend to March 2015, including through an online petition. That new date will allow Pasifika communities more time to organise responses. These responses include issues of community ownership for the programmes, as well as answering calls for a long-sought after Pasifika TV channel.
The petition is being led by the Pacific Islands Film and Television group and the Pacific Freedom Forum, following a fono held with the support of the Pacific Islands Media Association.
