Julian Dickon


Julian Dickon’s place in New Zealand screen history would be secure thanks to just one show — groundbreaking 70s drama series Pukemanu, which he created. Dickon also wrote a number of early plays for television, and went on to write drama, documentary and children’s show Sea Urchins. Dickon passed away on 3 April 2015.

It’s history now, and I had a part in it, and so had the rest of the actors and production team. I for one am still damn well proud of Pukemanu, and I hope they are too — we earned it the hard way. Julian Dickon, writing about TV series Pukemanu for NZ On Screen
