7 February 2017 – The New Zealand Herald debuted their first foray into long-form documentary making with Under The Bridge, an immersion into a world most New Zealanders have not experienced.
Through the eyes of three students and their principal, the documentary tackles key social issues such as child poverty, housing and education.
The documentary was produced and directed by Canon award-winning journalists Kirsty Johnston and Mike Scott from the Herald’s investigations and special projects team, with additional filming by Herald videographers Michael Craig and Nick Reed.
It was executive produced by Tash Christie (Greenstone) and Chris Reed (Herald), with significant logistical support from others at Greenstone.
