Profile image for Mark Everton

Mark Everton

Director, Producer

Mark Everton's broadcasting career began in 1977 at Radio Hauraki. He joined the TVNZ newsroom in 1985 and from there moved to TV3, before going independent. Since then Everton has played key roles on numerous high-rating TV productions  including award-winning Rose-Noëlle documentary Back from the Dead, and James Cook chronicle Captain's Log. He explored the history of Kiwi rock music in Give It A Whirl.

We were in receivership for most of that time – TV3 – and I used to say to the troops... What do you want to do today? ... What stories do you want to tell? How do you want to tell them? Because I tell you what, you go and do it, you do it today, because tomorrow we might be down the road. So that gave us great energy and great freedom. Mark Everton recalls his time producing Nightline, in his ScreenTalk interview with NZ On Screen
