Tangata Whenua was a groundbreaking six part documentary series that first screened in 1974. Historian Michael King was scriptwriter, interviewer and narrator. Each episode (remarkably screening in prime time on Sunday nights) chronicled a different iwi and included interviews with kaumatua - a first for NZ screens.

Kakapo Recovery has been given valuable hi-definition video footage - shot by an Emmy award-winning crew on Whenua Hou/Codfish Island - to edit and use to promote the programme. Producer/Director Mark Zavad and cinematographer Edward Dadulak, have each won three Emmy awards for their individual work. The pair was given special permission to travel to Whenua Hou/Codfish Island in December, where they shot footage for a documentary featuring high-profile Los Angeles vet Dr Attila Molnar.
