Disability Television Series Funded in New Zealand

INSIDE/Out, New Zealand's disability TV programme has received public funding for its fourth series. 2001 will be the fourth year New Zealand On Air has funded the series.

INSIDE/Out is a unique partnership between the New Frontier Trust, and Long White Cloud Television. The Trust was set up by a small group of people with disabilities who have experience in the media. The Trust formed a partnership with the television production company to ensure that a television series by for and with people with disabilities would represent a disability perspective on public service television.

The new series, which involves people with disability at most levels of commissioning, production, research and presentation is expected to go to air early in the New Year.
