I would bet a Jamie Curry youtube video is viewed by a bigger audience than the X Factor
but not a bigger *NZ* audience.
NZ on Air needs to somehow embrace two related functions (perhaps in more explicit joint work with other agencies) - showing us to ourselves, and showing the world.
Even better large like this. Incredible. Thank you for staying up and sharing.
NZ on Air had already decided not to subsidise future series of X Factor.
where’s the difference?

Welcome back. That's an interesting journey.
I do tend to enjoy the actual design and building bits of The Block (the faux drama I can live without)
If only someone made a cut-down version ...
I'd want it to be the most well-informed decision they've ever made.
If the law distinguishes between terminal illness and disability where does something like child cancer fit?
Actually I suppose some progressive impairments become terminal too.

Drinnan notes how this fits with Mediaworks' overall punt on reality telly, led by Julie Christie.
A reliance on reality TV has been evident since Christie joined the MediaWorks board in June last year as it emerged from receivership. Last month - in a an unorthodox decision - she was named manager of digital strategy for television and video.
Chief executive Mark Weldon, who started in August, is new to TV and has come to rely on Christie's expertise.
His main job is to find ways to sell the company and take it off the hands of banks and investors who lost money through the receivership.
The reality TV strategy and Henry show are a big part of that.
