This is the story of the role broadcasters, programme-makers and musicians played in inspiring us with their stories and songs and preserving for future generations the memories after the Christchurch earthquakes.
We invest more than $80 million a year in local television programmes on mainstream and regional free-to-air channels, so that you can see more, and a wider variety of, local content.
Through our funding of Public radio, Access radio, Pacific radio and special programmes for Commercial radio we ensure a voice for all New Zealanders on the airwaves. Supporting Community broadcasting is an important part of our overall strategy.
Our music mission is to get more New Zealand music played on the radio, on television and online. We fund songs and videos for broadcast and we help to promote them.

We've just released our Statement of Intent for the four year period beginning 1 July 2014. It sets out our priorities, focusing on our high level strategy and the impact of our work.
