Major Screen Showcase Launched Today: www.nzonscreen.com

23 October 2008 - From today, all New Zealanders will have free access to a unique online collection of New Zealand television and film content.

NZ On Screen, conceived and funded by NZ On Air, is a continually evolving showcase of New Zealand television and film.

It provides video clips from programmes and movies - and in many cases the whole programme - as well as commentary about the programmes, their makers, and their place in New Zealand's screen culture history.

The site was launched today by Broadcasting Minister Trevor Mallard. At launch, the site has more than 250 titles and accompanying content, with more being added all the time.

NZ On Screen manager, Brenda Leeuwenberg, said the site was unique in that it featured content from a wide range of programme makers, channels and genres.

``This is not just content from one source or one channel. The unifying principle is New Zealand content, old and new, housed on one site for New Zealanders and the world to enjoy.

``Over nearly a century, New Zealanders have created vast amounts of wonderful screen moments. NZ On Screen is bringing them to the surface for everyone to see.

``From the earliest days of New Zealand film until this very minute, this screen culture has been created and updated, continuously defining and reflecting who we are as New Zealanders.

``For the first time ever, this rich screen culture will be available for all New Zealanders to see, for free, in one place, at www.nzonscreen.com.''
