Conon Fraser

Producer, Director

As writer and presenter of The World Around Us, and producer of Looking at New Zealand, Conon Fraser was an early television celebrity. He joined the National Film Unit in 1969 and continued to make films documenting his adopted country’s landscape and history, and New Zealanders’ way of life. Fraser died on 17 June 2014, aged 84.

My interest is in documentary filming, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity of perhaps working in a little more depth, on longer projects. Conon Fraser on leaving Looking at New Zealand, NZ Listener, 6 December 1968
