AT tonight's New Zealand Television Awards the best of the best in the industry were celebrated, and we at Prime and SKY are excited to announce our winners!

Congratulations to Making Good Men for taking out the New Zealand On Air Best Documentary category!

This powerful documentary produced by Te Amokura Productions for Prime and made with the support of NZ On Air follows former All Black Norm Hewitt and actor Manu Bennett as they reveal their unforgettable account of bullying with unprecedented honesty. Making Good Men is available for all Kiwis to watch at  

Shaun Johnson: Across The Mekong was the winner in the hotly contested Best Sports Programme category. The documentary, filmed on location in Laos, showcased a side of the NRL star never seen before, as he and his family discover their Laotion roots and his mother’s tale of escape.

The Best Live Event Coverage award was snapped up by SKY for its coverage of the International Rugby: All Blacks vs British & Irish Lions 1st Test. Lions’ fever captured the nation during this tour, and for the viewers at home the experience was just as exciting!

Congratulations to all our winners, and to all of our other finalists including The Brokenwood Mysteries (Prime), Forensics NZ (Prime), The Crowd Goes Wild (Prime) and John Campbell: All Blacks in Apia (SKY).
