Roger Donaldson and Ian Mune - Winners and Losers

From Saturday Morning, 8:12 am on 19 May 2018

In 1976, the first prime time drama series to be independently produced in NZ, Winners and Losers, made its debut, featuring seven short story adaptations from some of NZ's finest writers including Katherine Mansfield, Frank Sargeson and Witi Ihimaera. The production - which launched the careers of many local actors - was written and directed by Roger Donaldson and Ian Mune, who have just finished supervising the restoration of the landmark series with the help of New Zealand On Air funding. The newly digitised series is to be launched at Park Road Post Production in Wellington at 6pm on Weds 23 May, and will be available at nzonscreen.com from the same day.
