Claudette Hauiti

Journalist Claudette Hauiti founded production company Front of the Box in 1993. Specialising in Māori and Pasifika programming, their output included documentaries about the female experience of gangs, and Qantas Award-winner Children of the Revolution, which profiled the offspring of activist New Zealanders. Hauiti became a list MP for the National Party in May 2013, but resigned from politics the following July.

We often get letters from viewers saying they didn't think the programme would be their sort of thing, but they have been drawn into it and got hooked. I love to hear that.
