IF YOU ARE ACQUIRING TVNZ ARCHIVE FOOTAGE FOR COMMISSIONED / TVNZ PROGRAMMES PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOOTAGE WILL BE SUPPLIED FROM NGÄ€ TAONGA SOUND AND VISION

How the process works:

  • Contact the Archive research team at ArchiveResearch@ngataonga.org.nz with your scoping requirements and deadline.
  • A Research Consultant will ascertain the end use of the material and organise an appropriate licence.
  • A Research Consultant will contact you to discuss your brief, research appropriate material and advise of any copyright issues.
  • Some footage will be released with advice that you must clear certain shots. For some content a clearance will need to be sighted before release. The Research Consultant will advise you of this.


It is best to e-mail the above address in the first instance, as our research team works on a roster, and the same researcher is not always available. You can also contact a research consultant on one of the numbers below.
