Bryan Bruce

Bryan Bruce has made documentaries on crime, natural history, child poverty, mental health and iconic Kiwis. In 2008 the Scots-born producer/director won a Qantas Award for unsolved murder series The Investigator, which he also presents. He has also won awards for Murder, They Said (about the David Tamihere case), and Jesus: The Cold Case. The Lost Dinosaurs of New Zealand was a finalist for several international awards.

...I think we can make analytical, thought-provoking programmes that encourage us to discuss the kind of society, the kind of place that we have here and whether this is New Zealand the way we want it.
