A career in film promotions helped win Brian Holland a job programming films to screen on TVNZ. In his 12 years at the state broadcaster, he moved from movies to general programming for TV2. Since leaving TVNZ Holland has worked for various production companies, developing a range of programming.
In this ScreenTalk, Holland talks about:

And it turned out that having this background in movies, and knowing the audiences for these movies, that I could do quite a good job with it.– Brian Holland on programming films to screen on TVNZ, at the start of this interview
